There is so much to see and do in Rapid City that on Monday we decided to try and get in at least 2 destinations per trip. So our first day of sightseeing we did 3!
There is so much to do here that a week will not be enough. But to make the most of it, we started with a visit to Bear Country USA.
This is a drive through park that takes about 45 minutes. Within the park are deer, bear, wolves, cougars, goats and a smaller walk through area where you will find the infants born at the park and some of the smaller animals like fox.
Leaving Bear Country we headed towards Custer State Park. Along the way we stopped and had lunch in a neat little town called Keystone. All the buildings in this town are fashioned after the old west. A population of 327 and they all must work in the tourist industry. I do want to go back here for the 1880 train ride, if time permits.
Custer State Park has BUFFALO!
Our trip continued with a drive through Custer State Park. I don’t have a lot to say about the park other than it would be a great place to live. The views from different parts of the park were outstanding.
I have selected a few pictures to show some of the activities at the park.
