Cheap Car Rental Rapid City Airport
Rapid City Airport car rental
Rapid City is known for being one of the largest cities in South Dakota. It has been named after the creek where the settlement was founded and it is very close to the Black Hills. There is a mountain range which splits the city. It is not the most well-known of cities but there is plenty for tourists to see and do there. Opt for car rental and you will find it so much easier to get around.
One of the main tourist attractions – and one that is a must for all visitors – is Mount Rushmore. This is a great feature and the sight of the faces of four of the most famous US presidents is something that is not to be missed. There is a presidential trail which can be followed and this is a great place to find out more about history. Children in particular will enjoy this attraction as there is also a junior ranger programme. Also close to Mount Rushmore is the Crazy Horse Memorial. This is a large statue which is still being created from the mountainside – work began in 1948.
Custer State Park is ideal for a day out with the family. Activities in the area include a buffalo safari where you can see a wide variety of animals including coyote and bison. Alternatively a trip to a wild west town is a great idea. The town of Deadwood has been restored and is famous as the town where Wild Bill Hickok was shot. There is a museum where visitors can see costumes from Kevin Costner movies and there is also a casino for those who want to have a flutter.
History enthusiasts can make the most of car hire to visit the Mammoth Site. This is the site of a giant sinkhole which is around 60 miles away from Rapid City. The mammoths used the site 26,000 years ago as a drinking hole and often became trapped. There have been digs in the area which have uncovered many bones.
The 1880 Train is the same type of train which brought settlers to the region and trips can be taken up the hills on it. There are conductors on board who can regale passengers with stories of the history of the region.
Rapid City car rental is a great way to explore the area and at such a low cost there is no reason not to give it a try. Families will find that they can pack so much more into their break when using a car hire service.
