8 Great Reasons To Love Spring In The Black Hills

We’re all about getting a jump on the season – by the time the first signs of spring appear, Rapid City is in full-on fun mode. Nature doesn’t wake up slowly around here, but with a burst of energy that has us jumping for joy. The Black Hills are the perfect place to get out and enjoy the beauty of a South Dakota spring, and here are a few ways to make the most of it. 

Let The Celebrations Begin!

Rapid City celebrates big anniversaries in 2016, with events commemorating the National Park Service Centennial and 75 years since the completion of Mount Rushmore National Memorial. As the actual anniversaries approach, take advantage of National Parks Fee Free Week, April 16-24. 

See What's Hidden in Plain Sight

Spring is the perfect time for an outing that combines some of the region’s compelling recent history with the mysteries of its oldest. Visit Minuteman Missile Silo National Historic Site for insight into the Cold War Era, then explore nearby Badlands National Park to see a surreal landscape that’s been millions of years in the making.
