Rapid City Attractions

Rapid City is a bit of a "tourist trap" (not that the rest of the state is much different). However, some of the attractions there are really "must-see's".

Cathy at Dinosaur ParkRapid City has a park built by the WPA during the Great Depression called Dinosaur Park. This park is up on a high hill overlooking the city, and contains a number of concrete dinosaurs. As it is a free attraction, and everything else seemed to close at 5:00 anyway, we decided to make a stop.

Minuteman MissileWe made a very brief stop at the South Dakota Air and Space Museum. I say brief because our literature said it closed at 6pm, and when we got there (at about 3:20) we found it closed at 4pm. This museum, which is free, contains a large number of historic aircraft.
