Rapids City Reviews

A Quiet, small town with a lot of charm. No heavy traffic most of the year, but motorcycles tend to drive through town in the summer months to get to a biker bar upstate. Beautiful river views, and amazing bike paths. The general population is older and everyone you run into is typically very nice.
