Outdoor Recreation

All you have to do is open your doors in Rapid City to see it – the great outdoors is something bigger here, even more remarkable with the Great Plains as your personal playing field. The Black Hills become racetracks, rock faces are welcoming obstacles and creeks and streams are the greatest form of transportation you've ever known. This is something you don't want to miss. The 9-to-5 is about to fade away – now it's just you and vast, unexplored lands. Trails waiting to be explored are all around you. This may be a short detour on the road of life, but wow, what a detour!
