Rapid City, South Dakota
Set against the eastern slope of the Black Hills, a mountain range splits this city into two parts. Badlands and Wind Cave national parks are a short drive away, and the city is the perfect destination for anyone who loves to fish and hunt.
Rapid City was ranked first on Outdoor Life's top towns for sportsmen in 2010. The city is also hidden in the shadow of Harney Peak, the highest point in America east of the Rocky Mountains.
