Reptile Garden ranked #1 tourist attraction

Posted: Updated: Jun 16, 2014 10:03 AM
Who's number one? According to the travel website Reptile Gardens in Rapid City sits on top!

Public relations director John Brockelsby said he received an email saying that the travel website ranked our popular local tourist attraction the #1 place to visit in South Dakota.

According to Brockelsby, website surveyors went to all 50 states and read reviews of attractions. Then they interviewed people who had been to that attraction.

Brockelsby said the recognition is great for business.

"That's coming right after we got into the 2014 Guinness Book of World records for the largest reptile collection. I think both of these things will bode well for visitation at Reptile Gardens this year," Brockelsby said.

For Father's Day, all local dads who paid admission received a free season's pass.
