contentsRapid City SD Chamberads


The Rapid City Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) is a division of the Rapid City Area Chamber of Commerce, with the objective to bring an increasing number of conventions, group tours, sporting events and leisure travel visitors to our area. As a destination marketing organization (DMO), the CVB delivers real dividends to our community, government, businesses and residents, bolstering the economy. Visitor taxes mean residents pay less taxes.

In fact, each South Dakota household would have to pay an additional $880 in taxes per year if tourism didn’t exist.

As the umbrella marketing arm for the entire community, with special emphasis on marketing the tourism and hospitality members of the Chamber of Commerce, the CVB acts as the catalyst between meeting planners, group tour planners, travel agents, travel writers and leisure visitors, promoting our accommodations, attractions, restaurants and services.

A trip to Rapid City and the Black Hills has so much to offer visitors, often serving as one of the must do items on a well-worn bucket list. The CVB is honored to have the privilege of creating wealth for our community by promoting all there is to see and do to visitors from around the world. The CVB utilizes a myriad of leading, award-winning marketing tactics to support this effort.

Rapid City is the land of big dreams and big adventures, where a vibrant contemporary city vibe complements a deeply meaningful and rich cultural heritage. With several national parks, monuments and memorials as well as a host of state parks all within an hour’s drive, visitors get to experience the sites that keep the heart racing and let the goose bumps out to play.

The Rapid City Visitor Information Center (VIC) is located in the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center. Our visitor information specialists are available to help make the most of a visit to Rapid City. The VIC is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
