There are about 80 - 85 caches within the city limits of Rapid City. They vary from micros / nanos to small and regular cache sizes. You can probably just do a PQ for the zipcode 57701 and a radius of 6 miles or so.

 

If you want to do some in the Black Hills, outside of town, Docster68 has a bookmark list of some popular Black Hills area caches, it is:

Of course, in a fit of self promotion, we have a series of caches in Rapid City called the "Furrball series". They are a series of 6 micros leading to a Traditional cache "Final" just outside of town. You need to get the number off the log of each one of them to determine the coordinates of the final. It's been pretty popular so far. You could check that out as well.

 

Have fun during your stay here!

I am moving this thread from the Geocaching Topics forum to the Great Plains forum.

Check out any of the caches along the Iron Mountain road from Custer State Park over to the base of Mount Rushmore - many nice views and caches along there.
