Rapid City ©
South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Explore Rapid City's surroundings by going to Custer (Needles Eye Tunnel, Iron Mountain Road, & more), Hill City (Brule, Dakota Stone Rock Shop, & more) and Badlands National Park (Burns Basin Overlook, Prairie Wind Overlook, & more). There's lots more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Bear Country USA, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Chapel in the Hills, find something for the whole family at Storybook Island, and learn about all things military at South Dakota Air and Space Museum.

To find maps, where to stay, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Rapid City trip itinerary maker tool .

In December in Rapid City, expect temperatures between 35°F during the day and 16°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 31st (Fri) so you can travel back home.
