We are planning for a trip to Rapid City and the area during this thanksgiving holidays. I wanted to find how the drive is going to be? Is it pretty much flat land or is it mountainous- the drive from Denver? We have a mini van (2010 Honda Odyssey) but it is not 4 wheel drive. So I want to know if we need to rent a 4 wheel drive SUV or our mini-van will suffice.
Also we have 2 kids 8 and 3. We are planning to go to WaTiKi in addition to the Mt. Rushmore ... any more suggestions aboout where we can visit to keep the kids engaged. We plan to stay to days there.
