Rapid City has cool restaurants, a cold-water creek where you can fly fish for mountain trout and dinosaurs on a hill. It’s a location that blends together Native American culture with ranching, history and the beautiful outdoors. Statues of the U.S. presidents stand on downtown streets, an inclusive complement to the Big Four singled out for nearby Mount Rushmore. Saddle makers, potters, lawyers, shopkeepers, rodeo cowboys and cowgirls, brewers and hoteliers thrive here — lots of hoteliers, thanks to Interstate 90 and Mount Rushmore. Rapid City seems like a favorite aunt; happy to see you, fun to be around and never needy.
