Heading West? Don't Miss Out on What Sioux Falls Has to Offer

Marilyn JonesSioux Falls, South Dakota, is just shy of half way between Minneapolis – where I’m coming from – and Rapid City, South Dakota – where I’m going. Driving straight through is doable, but I decide to stop in Sioux Falls, have lunch, see a few sights, stay the night and head out the next day.

This is supposed to be a vacation after all.

My first stop is the Visitor Information Center, located in the city’s famous Falls Park. I ask about a good place to have lunch and where they suggest I go for a leisurely afternoon of sightseeing.


The centerpiece of the park is a beautiful cascading falls that has been the center of recreation and industry since the founding of the city in 1856. The hiss of the water is soothing after several hours of driving; I am already glad I made the stop.
