Rent to Own Homes in Rapid City, SD

Rapid City, the second-largest city in South Dakota, sits where the vast open prairies begin to meet the mountains, grasslands, sagebrush and pine forests of the Old West. It's the hometown of Ellsworth Air Force Base, which played a critical role in American defense throughout the Cold War. Rapid City borders the Black Hills and is just 25 miles away from the Mount Rushmore National Memorial, which is why it is often called the "City of Presidents."

Local Shopping

While it's now home to big box stores and supermarkets, Rapid City still serves the same shopping role as a frontier trading post, providing supplies to people in the surrounding area. Shoppers from outlying towns and farms drive in when it's time to stock up. Rushmore Mall has the anchor stores and specialty shops you would expect and a few surprises, like "Trains of America," which operates a scale train to give kids a ride around the inside of the mall. In addition to entertainment and good restaurants, the downtown area has boutique shops selling local items like Native American jewelry and Black Hills Gold.

Arts and Culture

Newcomers to Rapid City might be surprised by the vibrant nightlife, numerous art galleries, and quality museums. Art Alley, an actual alley in downtown that has been transformed into a street art gallery, has garnered national attention. A symphony orchestra, dance troupe, and community theater bring everything from great musical performances to Broadway productions. The Apex Gallery, Dahl Arts Center, and Journey Museum each host unique art displays. The latter chronicles the history and geology of the area, going back 2.5 billion years to the formation of the Black Hills. Family Movie Night in downtown is a favorite with the locals, where people get together and watch movies together in open air.
