So, I don’t wanna sound like a traitor to Texas or anything, but Rapid City area is PRETTY!
It’s sandwiched between the Badlands (which aren’t that bad) and the Black Hills. Mount Rushmore is about 20 minutes away, the little towns around are really cute, and there’s different rallies all summer – we were there for Sturgis Bike Week, there’s also Corvettes, and many others. Very fun!
We stayed at our friend’s empty house before they moved in and saw LOTS of these bucks just walking around in the yards.
We drove out to Sturgis to check out Bike Week! There were 800,000 bikers in the areas around Sturgis. That actually doubled the population of the STATE!
We drove through the Black Hills with the bikers
We even saw Mount Rushmore! It faces east, so if you come to see it, you should go in the morning…
We drove my car up and flew back so that we could ride in one car when we moved. I love flying standby! The ticket printer at the counter was broken in Rapid City so when we were assigned seats on the plane, the counter guy came over and gave us these hand-written seat numbers! Hilarious!!
With Bike Week, there were lots of celebrities in town! And we saw Axel Rose at the airport!! We don’t have a photo though.
But we were really happy to get our hand-written standby seats!
