Rapid City

  • Rapid City

    Rapid City, South Dakota is the doorway to the Mount Rushmore National Memorial.

    • Black Hills


    • Mt Rushmore


    Visit Mount Rushmore and see the faces of four American presidents – George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln carved from a granite mountainside high above the treetops of the Black Hills.

    You can have it all, from adrenaline-charged outdoor activities to thoughtful cultural pursuits and all the heart-stopping scenery in between. When you stay in Rapid City, you’re within an hour’s drive of five national parks and monuments and surrounded by a local culture that’s rich with history and artistic expression.

    Enjoy the great outdoors, hiking and biking on the many trails through the Black Hills area and along Rapid Creek or head to Iron Mountain Road or Spearfish Canyon. Rapid City and the Black Hills are known for their mountain lakes and fresh-water streams brimming with brook, brown and rainbow trout. On the surrounding prairie, reservoirs and ranch stock dams are full of largemouth bass, northern pike and a variety of panfish.

    Treat the kids to a day at Dinosaur Park or Storybook Island or get up close to the wildlife at Bear Country USA and Reptile Gardens.

    From the Rushmore Mall to unique downtown shops, Native American arts and crafts outlets and Black Hills gold jewelers, there's plenty of shopping opportunities throughout town.

    When it comes to dining, Rapid City has something for all appetites—whether it's fine dining and wine, chuckwagon meals or cheeseburgers and fries—you're sure to please the whole family.
