Gateway to the Black Hills
South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West. Today, the city's museums and cultural attractions highlight the area's rich Native American and pioneer heritage, and cover topics including science, contemporary arts, and European history. The majority of attractions can be found in the walkable downtown area, home to a bustling main square, shopping destinations, and a host of restaurants. Outdoor enthusiasts come to the region to explore the Black Hills via hiking, biking, fishing, and more. The city of more than 70,000 serves as a jumping-off point for two popular national monuments in the area.
