South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Get out of town with these interesting Rapid City side-trips: Custer (Needles Eye Tunnel, Iron Mountain Road, &more), Hill City (Brule, Dakota Stone Rock Shop, &more) and Keystone (Keystone Historical Museum, Breezy Point Picnic Area, &more). There's lots more to do: get in on the family fun at Storybook Island, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Reptile Gardens, wander the streets of Downtown Rapid City, and don't miss a visit to Dinosaur Park.

For traveler tips, where to stay, photos, and more tourist information, read Rapid City tour itinerary planning tool.

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