The Rapid City Area

Travelers flock to this area to enjoy the sights from state parks to water parks. As a major attraction, our accommodations are conveniently located near the largest indoor water park in the state of South Dakota. Discover how much there is to do and see in this area with abundant options for dining, shopping, and entertainment. With easy access from Interstate 90, guests can enjoy free parking at our hotel to assist with short excursions to spots including the Mount Rushmore National Monument and Crazy Horse Memorial. The enriched historical hotspots are one draw, yet the area also brings in a lot of traveling business people to the convention centers and top companies in the area.

The second-largest city in South Dakota, Rapid City has quickly grown into a major hub of travel for both tourism and business trips. The hills hold national landmark Mount Rushmore as well as the Crazy Horse Memorial. With a rich history that dates back to the Custer Expedition in 1874, the area has been cultivated and revitalized over time to promote a plethora of recreational activities. Flowing through Rapid City, Rapid Creek passes through the downtown district and creates a floodplain of parks, bike trails, and scenic outdoor activities. With a strong pulse in the arts, festivals, music, and more, this city has a unique appeal for a wide array of visitors. This city is also home to higher learning facilities and educational institutions, including the South Dakota School of Mines.
