Dinosaur Park was my first stop in Rapid City. I had just flown in from the East Coast for a vacation in the Black Hills. I picked up a rental car and, yes, I headed for Dinosaur Park. Except for size, the concrete dinosaurs aren't much to marvel at, but I didn't come here for the dinosaurs. From its vantage point high above the city, Dinosaur Park was where I could get a good look at the surrounding area. The Park offers spectacular views of Rapid City and the Black Hills beyond. I picked up lunch on my way to the Park and a picnic table beneath a full-size Brontosaurus seemed a perfect spot for an impromptu if off-beat picnic. My brief stay at the Park proved to be a wonderful start to a memorable vacation in western South Dakota.
