South Dakota Was Just Named One Of The 7 Best Destinations In America For An Affordable Vacation
Do you need to get away but do not have the funds for an expensive vacation? If so, we have great news, as – if you are a native South Dakotan – one of the best and most affordable destinations in America is right in our own backyard! The Mount Rushmore State was just named one of the seven best destinations in the country for an inexpensive getaway:
According to Budget Travel, which focuses on great ways to travel while spending less money, Rapid City, South Dakota is one of the
7 Great Destinations for An Affordable Weekend Getaway, and we couldn't agree more!
Coming in at number six, Rapid City is deemed affordable for several reasons, including the number of direct flights from other major airports, the vibrant arts scene, outdoor recreation opportunities, and - of course - the famous landmarks that surround the famous SoDak city.
Admission to Mount Rushmore? Free (minus a small parking fee). Hotels and restaurants? All competitively priced! A fabulous downtown area with plenty of things to see and do? Rapid has that, too!
If you are a lover of all things outdoors, you are going to flip for Rapid City, too! The town is situated within the Black Hills, meaning there are plenty of places to drive, hike, bike, fish, walk, and photograph.
Depending on when you visit, you may even be able to take in a free (or inexpensive) festival or two.

In addition to Rapid City, Budget Travel paid homage to a few other (surprisingly) affordable destinations, including New York City, Pittsburgh, and the Sanibel and Captiva Islands (Florida).
Do you live in Rapid and want to visit a new place? These three may be your best bet!
While Rapid City is an affordable and exciting destination, we happen to feel that the rest of the state is the same, thanks to such exciting spots as nearby Custer, gorgeous Pierre, and bustling Sioux Falls (pictured).
