  1. Default Central Calif to Rapid City, SD

    I checked this and Rapid City is about 20 hours away (Almost 1400 miles) I was wondering how much time should I allow to get there and back? I want to see Mt. Rushmore. Also what are some good stops along this route?

    Default map math

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Despite what an online map might tell you, its really unlikely that you'd be able to average the non-stop 70 mph that they used to calculate a 20 hour estimate. 25 Hours would really be much more likely.

    Regardless, its a drive that you should be looking at 2 overnight stops.

    There are dozens of national parks and other possibilities depending upon your interests, exactly where in Central CA you're starting from, and which route you are looking at taking. You've basically got the entire American West as a possibility.
