Enjoy a beer with a solid cigar betwixt your teeth. Browse their wide selection in their on site humidor, and enjoy your cigar in the last bar in South Dakota to allow smoking indoors. Wonderful, relaxed atmosphere. The bartender, Penny, is my favorite in town!

Did you save a few bucks by using our service? I know a great place to lose it... Just kidding. The Lodge at Deadwood is one of my favorite places to go for a night of fun. A truly massive Casino nestled at the edge of Historic Deadwood, I consistently have higher winning rates at this casino than any other venue I've tried. And the restaurant inside, Oggies Sports Bar & Emporium, has never let me down.

Another great Casino - but I don't go here for the card games, although I seem to have decent luck with Blackjack here - I go here for the food. Their Grand Buffet serves all you can eat Crab and Prime Rib every weekend for 20-30 dollars a person.

Barcade! Vintage arcade games and beer, what's not to love? Finally smash through those games that frustrated you so badly as a kid. 21+ after 10pm, but a great place for families during the day.

"Well, uh... It's where the laws of physics have no meaning." If you get that reference I'll give you a discount on your stay! Neat little area where it's claimed that physics get a little wonky, some neat optical illusions. Fun for kids and families.

Take a jaunt down to N'awlins with this quaint and delicious restaurant serving up pure Louisiana Cajun with a side of sass. Personal recommendation - I grew up on the muddy banks of the Mighty Mississippi and this little joint has the best catfish I've had since leaving home and that's nothin' to shake a stick at!

Oh my my . This is by far the absolute best place to eat in all of the Black Hills. They have a claim to the "Best Burgers in America" and I absolutely believe it. Trip Advisor rated them as the best burger joint in America 5 years in a row. I regularly drive 30 miles to eat here. They have daily specials, burgers of the week and they're no more expensive than a regular burger shop. 8 bucks for a plate and a beer. You don't want to pass this up. They're only open from 10-2 and 5-8.

A taste of the Mediterranean in the middle of the USA, this little shop serves up fresh cooked lamb gyros all day long. Their baklava is some of the best I've ever had and they added an American twist to their meals - you can now order a Gyro PIZZA. Do I need to say any more? Try it immediately! Also available for delivery through Food Dudes!

I know what you're thinking: Mall Food Court? Ugh. I know, I know - but this place truly does have the best sushi in town. To put it better - I'm not a huge sushi fan, but I don't mind at all when my wife wants to go here for dinner.

Hands down one of the best places to eat in Rapid. A wide selection of craft beers and original flatbreads, my personal favorite is their Jalapeno Popper Pizza Flatbread. It's flatbread, cream cheese, raspberry jam, mozzerella cheese and Jalapenos. Yes, your mouth is watering. Yes, you should go eat there. Fantastic atmosphere for a date.

Parks & Nature
It's a bit out of the way, but what a sight to behold. Rising over 500 feet into the air, Devil's tower is a singularity in the world. The remains of a dormant volcano's core, Devil's Tower was formed millennia ago when the softer rock of the outer cone of the volcano eroded away, leaving the harder, granite volcanic plug standing by itself. It isn't even a solid piece of rock, but a collection of hexagons gripping to one another by means of friction. If you're lucky, you'll see a spectacular boulder fall as some of these hexagons fall away. Sacred to the Native Americans, hiking the trail around the mountain will bring you a sense of spirituality few other places can.

My personal favorite place in the Black Hills. Spearfish Canyon is an 18 mile drive/hike through the outer rim of the Black Hills, culminating in a beautiful waterfall, Rough Lock Falls. Several iconic locations are found in the drive to the top, including Devil's Bathtub - a short half mile hike on mostly flat ground, through lime stone cliffs to a small swimming hole (my wife and I got married here!) and Eleventh Hour - a very short hike through a small canyon with an incredible variety of colored moss on the eternally wet walls, if you climb to the top and out to the cliffs you can see the canyon and creek in a spectacular fashion. A second waterfall is right off the highway.

Absolutely beautiful, completely free lake with crystal clear water that is fed from Hot Springs, you can see the bottom of the lake for quite a ways out. A popular spot with the locals, most tourists never hear of this wonder of the Black Hills.

Black Elk Peak is the highest point on Earth between the Swiss Alps and the Rocky Mountains - for you East Coasters, that means this rises higher than the Appalachians! A moderate hike, there is a 3 mile trail which leads from the beaches of Sylvan lake to an old Fire Lookout Tower atop the peak, from which you can see Mt. Rushmore and a stunning view of the rest of the Hills.

Oooh, I guess I have to put this in here, don't I? I've tried to avoid the "touristy" sites because I hate that people miss out on so much of what the Black Hills have to offer... But yes, you should see Mt. Rushmore. It is a beautiful monument and offers much more than just faces carved in a rock. An engineering marvel in its own right, it also tells you the history of its conception, construction and the surrounding area. There's fireworks displays and live theater at night, too!

Now here's a "crazy" monument - this singular stone face commemorating the life and achievements of the Native American Crazy Horse, is larger than the entirety of Mt Rushmore - and that's just his face! Intricate stonework carved out by pure volunteer work, you can walk up the mountain and view it much more closely than you can Mount Rushmore. A truly impressive feat and a glimpse of the beating heart of the Black Hills.

A cacophony of street art, Art Alley is exactly what it sounds like. Running along the alley between the Hotel Alex Johnson and its neighbors, you can view some of the best alternative art forms Rapid City has to offer. Some of the work is truly mind-boggling. Rapid has embraced this artistry and even allows businesses to commission street artists to create ads for them. Drop in on a Thursday during Summer Nights to find live musicians playing for the festival.
