Spring Break In Rapid City

FAMILY FUN ALERT: Spring Break Was Made For Doing Big Things!

No matter what it looks like outside your window right now, spring is just around the corner! Soon, you and the family can say goodbye to winter routines and hit the road for the spring break trip you all deserve. Reward your crew with a visit to Rapid City in the heart of South Dakota’s Black Hills, where big things provide the perfect solution for curious minds and boundless spring energy. Whether you’re creating the memories of a lifetime at Mount Rushmore National Memorial or the seven other major parks and monuments nearby, easy access to hiking, biking and exploring the great outdoors makes Rapid City a family favorite for spring break.

While massive mountain carvings and wild buffalo encounters are sure to give kids a thrill this spring, sometimes it’s sharing a small moment that makes the trip. Get ready to experience wonder in the presence of prehistoric creatures  at Dinosaur Park and The Mammoth Site of Hot Springs. See how learning to bait your own hook lights up faces at The Outdoor Campus West. Watch them discover their own potential as they face off with life-size statues of American heroes in the City of Presidents or on a tour at the South Dakota Air & Space Museum. There’s plenty of inspiration to go around where local arts and culture reveal both the area’s spectacular natural beauty and its rich Native American heritage. However you define it, it’s easy to keep the focus on family fun in Rapid City – you can even get a jump on summer at WaTiki Indoor Waterpark.
