Surrounded by surreal parks, monuments, memorials and places to play – when it comes to big outdoor adventures, Rapid City has them. Pack your active wear and get ready to enjoy the best of our area with these top picks for adventure!
If you’ve spent any time in the area, then you know how easy it is to find tons of amazing trails, public land, and awesome spots with just a short drive. But what I didn’t realize was that I could find great hiking without ever leaving Rapid City.
Whether you’re planning a family vacation for multiple generations or it’s all about the kids, staying in Rapid City offers easy access to all the beloved Black Hills experiences. I encourage you to use these travel ideas to mix, match, and make your own plans for traveling with family.
While the Black Hills capture a lot of the attention at the turn of the season, for good reason, autumn gems worth your time can also be found throughout our charming town. In fact, during the fall and winter season is when you can truly experience Rapid City like a local.
