We are all facing so much uncertainty and uneasiness; we want you to know Visit Rapid City cares for our guests, our workers, and our community. Your health and safety are our top priority. We are acting in accordance with the advice and guidelines of local, state, and federal health officials and will be monitoring this situation very closely. We are in this together and we will get through this together! 

We encourage you to escape to our website and get inspired by the beauty of Rapid City and the Black Hills of South Dakota, and make plans for the future. There will be a time when we look back at these troubling weeks and gather together with family and friends, colleagues and industry partners and hop back in our cars and book our flights for the next big thing on our bucket lists. At that time, we welcome you to Rapid City and the Black Hills of South Dakota so you can check off one of the most inspiring and breathtaking destinations from your list.
