7 Days | 6 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate
Road Scholar has thousands of educational adventures to choose from. A good way to narrow down our list is to browse our collection of "Most Popular" programs.
See all of our Most Popular programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

My sister and I are coming from Detroit and would like to share a shuttle. Just making our plane reservations and will post our arrival in Rapid City for the Sept 14-20 Mt. Rushmore program.

To Paula Tamura I will be arriving in Rapid City, Sept 21st 12:03. Delta Flight 4699. I'd be delighted to share a shuttle. Gladys Kleinknecht
Paula Tamura Aug 11, 2014 at 11:55 AM

Thank you, Gladys, but Delta changed my itinerary, and I won't be coming into RC until 3:25. Paula T.


Paula Tamura Jul 14, 2014 at 05:28 PM

I will be arriving for the 9/21 departure around 11:30 and my friend will be there around noon. If anyone else is arriving at the same time we would be happy to share the shuttle ride. Feel free to email me.

You will have the time of your life, I hope you have our tour guide Penny she was fantastic, and all I can say dont worry about the shuttle, I did and when I got to Rapid city there were plenty of people checking in for the shuttle, th eonly suggestion is to ask the coordinator when other people are arriving on their flights, you will probably meet up in your connection to Rapid city as it is a rinky dinky airport, and delays unless your drivin g of course. But you will have the time of your life. Just an idea the lodge i didnt care for much, bring your own sturdy pillow if tyou can.

Went on that trip this May., wonderful time. The airport shuttle is $23 per person for 2 or more, good deal. The trip pkg will give you all the info you need as your date gets nearer.. Enjoy!

They discuss one area in the museum with stairs. How many? I can do stairs, but am slow on them and don't want to hold others up.

My wife and I are doing the Black Hills trip with Buffalo round up starting SEPTEMBER 21. (We live in California but I an a South Dakota native so this is old home week for me.) Any way we will get to the Rapid City airport on September 21 at 3:35 Rapid City time. Looking for any people interested in sharing a van/cab/stagecoach to get from the airport to the lodge.

Even if no one is traveling out of Newark is anyone arriving in Rapid city about 2Pm that can share taxi to the motel or lodge to save money for the rides.
Nancy B Christiansen May 16, 2014 at 06:31 PM

Sorry I didn't see the date, I'll be there on the 18th.
Jessica Romer May 16, 2014 at 06:51 PM

OK I figured so as I heard the weather was not so good right now and enjoy. thanks I spoke to Rapid taxi and they said that they all meet up at the shuttle and wait for others to come as I hope others will see my post even if they are not flying from my area if we all arrive by 2PM we can wait for each other to go to the Lodge
