Sioux Falls in South Dakota is possibly the best place in America to enjoy all the thrills and spills of a big city as well as the relaxed charm of a small town. Perhaps it is because the city enjoys the best of both worlds that Sioux Falls has consistently been named ‘America’s most liveable city’.
The heart and historic birthplace of Sioux Falls is its sublime central park, surrounding the falls of the Big Sioux River. These falls were the centre for the mighty Lakota Sioux of the Great Plains as well as several other ancient civilizations before the European settlements were built here. Today, the falls provide a perfect spot for hiking, picnicking and swimming.
Washington Pavilion is the cultural centre of the city and is also near the falls. The pavilion offers a science museum, a performing arts centre, the CineDome Theater, a coffee shop, and some great shopping. The Pavilion Visual Arts Center houses some truly wonderful Native American art and revolving displays.
For some thrilling outdoor winter adventures, Great Bear Winter Park is just outside of Sioux Falls and is easily reached by car. This park has some great downhill and cross country skiing, snowboarding and tubing.
Also just a short drive away is the Outdoor Campus, an entertainment and learning centre. The Outdoor Campus’ museum includes a great 11,356-litre aquarium complete with many species of fish and underwater life from local lakes. It is a spectacular place to become more familiar with the local Great Plains habitat.
For butterfly lovers, south of the Outdoor Campus is the premier butterfly garden of the Midwest, the Sertoma Butterfly House. Here, during the early and late summer, you will find thousands of butterflies on their migratory route.
The two major highways running through the city are: I-90, going east-west, and I-29, running north-south. From Sioux Falls, I-29 goes west through the Black Hills, into Montana, and all the way to Seattle, Washington. presently, there is no direct rail service to or from Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The airport in Sioux Falls is served by several major American carriers and offers direct flights to and from several major American cities.
