Your Home Away From Home For The Holidays

Raised in Rapid City and lucky to call it home, this outdoor enthusiast loves to explore the Black Hills with her husband and two dogs. When she’s not at work you’ll find her out hiking, at a local ice cream shop, or perhaps home taking a nap.

Thinking about an escape to Rapid City this holiday season?

Holiday fun in our community is easy to find and when it's paired with the outstanding outdoor adventures of the Black Hills, it's unforgettable. Here are some reasons Rapid City should be on your list of holiday destinations and why The Holiday Inn Rapid City - Rushmore Plaza should be your home away from home while you’re here.

Rush Hockey Game In Rapid City South Dakota


Winter weather, while beautiful, is usually on the cooler side when it comes to temperatures. That means it’s important to stay somewhere conveniently located, and the Holiday Inn Rapid City - Rushmore Plaza fits that description perfectly. This hotel is the closest you can get when it comes to staying near The Monument (formerly known as the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center) which hosts events all year long. A walk through the parking lot will land you right next door to attend any of the events that are happening while you're in town. You couldn’t get any closer – unless you slept in the event center, but please don’t do that.

Christmas Lights in Downtown Rapid City


Beyond their location in proximity to the The Monument, The Holiday Inn is located blocks away from Downtown Rapid City. Even in winter weather you can enjoy a short walk through Memorial Park over to enjoy the charming features of our Downtown, like ice skating at Main Street Square! In truth, I have never been a huge ice skater, but every year I make my husband take me to Main Street Square. There’s just something special about this rink. You’re in the heart of Rapid City, surrounded by the glow of Christmas lights and the sounds of holiday music and to top it off you can get a nice warm beverage from Alternative Fuel. Talk about toasty perfection.

Snowshoeing in the Black Hills National Forest


I can’t talk about winter activities in our area without mentioning the Black Hills. Whether it be snowmobiling, snow shoeing, hiking, or just a jaw-dropping scenic winter drive, it’s important to experience winter in the hills. Thankfully, The Holiday Inn is also conveniently located near the interstate, which is the last reason I am going to give on why this would be my choice for a home away from home for the holidays.

Make a memorable holiday season in Rapid City. With a stay at the Holiday Inn Rapid City - Rushmore Plaza you are truly surrounded with great seasonal fun. Learn more about all the amenities they offer by visiting the website and have a Happy Holidays!
