City Guide: Discover the best of Rapid City

     The city became home to one of the world's greatest wonders when Gutzon Borglum, the famous sculptor together with his son, Lincoln Borglum started carving the presidents' faces in rock. Mt Rushmore was finished in 1938, this impressive structure has drawn the foreign interest to the area and changed life in Rapid City for the better.

    Tourism started to earn money for the city since the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally arrived in the 1980s. Despite Rapid City has already won its audience in tourism being a second to none destination in South Dakota, the city anticipates a future of great advancements. Along with tourism, Rapid City makes huge achievements in the fields of technology, medicine, and scientific research.

     Away from advancements to come, Rapid City is reasonably named the "Star of the West". The second-largest city in South Dakota, it sits in front of the eastern slope of the Black Hills mountain being split in two by its rocky ranges. Teeming with interesting sites, the city offers abundance of outdoors mainly concerning the Black Hills. More than 450 miles of hiking trails and activities to pack your stay with biking, rock climbing, hunting, fishing, rock collecting, camping and boating are waiting for you in Rapid City.

Other attractions include;

- The Journey Museum has exhibits about Native American History

- Art Alley offer paintings, sculpture, and photos

- Reptile Gardens, a home to the 14-foot-long American alligator

- Storybook Island, a very popular kids' playground

- The Rushmore Mall features many typical suburban stores

     Rapid City was brought to life in 1874, only two years after the gold was discovered in the neighboring areas. Actually, the city was laid out by pioneers John Brennan and Samuel Scott to live from selling supplies to miners. Sleepy in the early years, Rapid City is awake after the years of slumber since automobile shows brought the first tourists to the feet of the Black Hills.

     Growth was supposed to be slowed down by the wars, but the wartime paid off with benefit to the Rapid City with the opening of Ellsworth Air Force Base and an Army Air Corps base. It revealed new job opportunities and the population doubled from 14,000 to nearly 27,000 people. After the war came the building boom - first, but not last - to prettify the city. On June 9, 1972, heavy rain caused a flood and it led to a decade of recovery and reconstruction in Rapid City again.

     Anyway, these are troubles of days long gone and today you can book a hotel in Rapid City with all comforts for your stay. Booked.net can assist you with your booking.
