Who We Are

Visit Rapid City is a non-profit, destination marketing organization promoting leisure travel, special/sporting events, meetings and conventions, and group travel and tours to Rapid City and the Black Hills area. Our purpose is to make Rapid City a top visitor destination through inspiration by sharing the Rapid City story and to spur economic growth through partnership and innovation. The visitors that these efforts attract impact our local economy by generating new revenue from non-local tax sources, sustaining jobs and keeping property taxes down. 

How We Impact

2018 Visitor Spending Pie Chart

 

  • Visitor Spending in the Black Hills and Badlands Region is $1.5+ Billion and in Pennington County alone, more than $780 Million.

  • Without visitors, each South Dakota household would pay $865 more in property taxes
