On your next trip to Rapid City, make sure to consider employing our Rapid City car hire services as your main means of transportation. Located in the Badlands and Black Hills Region of the state, Rapid City is used by many as a sort of headquarters for those who wish to travel towards either the Mount Rushmore National Memorial, the Crazy Horse Memorial, exploring the Badlands and the Black Hills National Forest.

The city is served by the Rapid City Regional Airport but you can also reach the place by road, however if you do land here you can employ our Rapid City car rental services and have a car of your choice ready and waiting for you at the airport at an hour that you specify.

Even if the place is mostly used as a jump-off spot towards other nearby locations of interest, there are quite a few things that you can see and do while in Rapid City.

The Reptile Gardens, which can be found six miles from downtown, as the name implies this is a herpetological park, and a rather serious one at best featuring one of the best collections of lizards, snakes and gators in the entire country. The local star is ‘Gus’ the alligator, Gus is short for “humongous” because the American alligator is fourteen feet long.

Another particular attraction of the city is the Fort Hays Chuckwagon Supper & Show and the Dances with Wolves film set. The buildings used when the movie was filmed are part of the traditional cowboy supper with music & comedy show, this is where you can get yourself a real taste of hardy cowboy-style cooking with things like chuckwagon potatoes, baked beans and barbecued beef being on the menu.

The city also features the South Dakota Air and Space Museum which offers some great exhibits related to the development of aircraft technology through time.

These are of course only a few of the things that you can see and do while in Rapid City so make sure to employ our Rapid City car hire services as you will surely want to explore this city and its surroundings in detail.
