please note winters are terrible. Be ready to drive in snow for nine months out of the year. We only have three months of summer, however you may enjoy the hills and lakes. There are many hiking paths within and out of the city limits.

Rapid City, SD is nestled at the foot of the Black Hills. Winters, while harsh, can be beautiful. Rapid City, SD is only a one hour drive from Mount Rushmore National Monument. There is ongoing construction in the downtown, which is planned to continue for the next three years.
