Rapid City, South Dakota

I really enjoyed our time in South Dakota, though we were only there one month. Rapid City is a lovely small city with lots of family friendly events during the summer. In the middle of downtown is Main Street Square where there is a splash pad, umbrella covered tables, and space for the children to run. (That’s fake grass. They take it up in the winter and turn it in to a skating rink) They also have free outdoor movies and concerts. I took the children to the splash pad several times while we were there.



While we were there the city had a pumpkin festival. I love pumpkins!

You can learn about our presidents through a guided tour of beautiful statues downtown.

And if you happen to be in to graffiti, there’s a place for you.

We took a lovely train ride.


And much more. It was a great time.
