Rapid City Vacations

Rapid City--or simply Rapid-- is situated in the stunning Black Hills and Badlands region of South Dakota, and it delights with its pleasant mix of natural attractions, entertainment activities, and charming atmosphere. Learn about local history at the Journey Museum, tour the unique Dinosaur Park, or shop until closing time; such diverse options ensures every traveler has a blast. Get ready to dig into the scene with Rapid City vacation packages; it's time to see some presidents and visit outstanding water parks.

Major Attractions

Mount Rushmore National Memorial stands as the area's premier attraction, and most Rapid City hotels will offer you a way to get there. Storybook Island brings all those famous children's stories to life, and Art Alley is truly imaginative. You could also take a trip to Reptile Gardens or Bear County USA, the place to greet black bears. The South Dakota Air and Space Museum features engaging exhibits as well, while hiking is quite popular in the surrounding wilderness. Downtown Rapid City boasts everything you could want in a town, since you can buy Native American crafts, enjoy the fabulous dining scene, and taste local craft beer and wine. As you look for Rapid City hotel packages, try to put yourself near such attractions.

Festivals and Events

Those booking Rapid City vacations should take note of events to enjoy. The Central States Fair in August features everything from rodeo to a parade, while music lovers shouldn't miss Deadwood Jam in September. Additionally, the Great Downtown Pumpkin Festival in September always attracts a huge crowd, and the Made in South Dakota in October is great for locally made products.
