This is a neat place. The staff was friendly and helpful. The night we were there they has live music outside, which was nice. The gift shop was neat but very touristy. The town was very nice with a lot of cute stores.

The Corn Palace has a very interesting history. The video was informative. The little kids truly enjoyed the interactive play area upstairs. If you like local products, the downstairs area had fun things to purchase. This can be a quick visit.

I liked seeing the corn palace. It was nice to see the inside but I don't think I will go inside again because there isn't a whole lot in there. There is a large over priced gift shop.

Not really, basically you spend 15 minutes or so admitting the art it takes to create the murals from corn products and your done!
We are planning a break on our trip to Rapid City and we are pulling a large fifth wheel. What are the parking possibilities for this?
