Come see why Rapid City, SD was voted Most Patriotic 2011 by Rand McNally/USA Today. With statues of past US presidents on every corner, one may wonder what came first – the national pride or nearby Mt. Rushmore.
While in town, visitors are likely to see other gems. Sometimes it’s a glimpse of the beautiful nature and Native American history, and other times it leaves one puzzled. Tourists beware – Rapid City, SD basically shuts down on Sundays including the Visitors Centers. So you’re on your own but armed with the correct materials and right attitude, there should be plenty to do and see.
