South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
You've added WaTiki Indoor Waterpark Resort, Memorial Park, 1880 Train/Black Hills Central Railroad, and other attractions to your itinerary. Attractions like Wildlife Loop Road and Needles Eye Tunnel make great kid-friendly stops. Take a break from the city and head to Sylvan Lake and Black Elk Peak. The adventure continues: discover the riches below the earth's surface at Big Thunder Gold Mine and see the interesting displays at National Presidential Wax Museum.
