What Bert Has To Say About Rapid City Metro Area

Rapid City is a gateway to the Black Hills of southwest South Dakota. Originally a center for the mining and timber industries, the today the city is more reliant on light industry, tourism and the large Ellsworth Air Force Base nearby. That base narrowly escaped closure recently, but the prospect of future closure hangs over the area’s employment picture. The downtown core is a Western classic, with a broad main street featuring a mix of traditional small town commercial establishments and others oriented towards tourists.
