Perhaps you thought of stopping in Rapid City, South Dakota for a night on your family road trip, allowing a quick visit to Mount Rushmore, as did we. But after we decided to hang around for 4 nights, we discovered there was so much more to do around Rapid City. Here’s our favourite 13 things to do (in addition to Mount Rushmore).

What not to Miss: The Black Hills, South Dakota The picture here shows a small tunnel, on Needles Highway, that looks like you won't fit, but there is plenty of room. This is a great state to visit. We stayed at the State Game Lodge in Custer State Park, and were never far from any of the attractions. The buffalo are amazing and the highlight of my trip. They are free roaming at the park.
