Love In Rapid City

Experience The Adventurous Romance Of Rapid City

February is often called the month of love, but there’s no reason to limit your romance to one month a year in Rapid City. When spring breathes life into the Black Hills the surrounding area gets a little more romantic. Bringing together elements like date night on Main Street, adventures moments with nature’s beauty and all of the unique offerings in between has couples covered.

Skyline Drive and Vertex Sky Bar are two dreamy locations within the city offering twinkling lights and stunning views perfect for setting the mood. A walk in the park is always romantic and Canyon Lake Park Gazebo offers privacy and quality time together. Take a stroll around the lake, bring a blanket and let the whimsical setting do the rest! If you’re looking for something truly unique, head over to Rushmore Cave at Rush Mountain Adventure Park for a tour and be sure to have the guide point out the spot where a couple said their ‘I Dos’ surrounded by limestone formations.
