Why Sioux Falls Is For You

Sioux Falls view

In 1856, when it was settled, Sioux Falls was one of the first towns in the state. The town was settled near the Big Sious River and named for its beautiful falls. Sioux Falls is South Dakota's largest city with over 135,000 citizens and reaches into both Lincoln and Minnehaha Counties.

Sioux Falls has routinely made the list of the Top 10 Best Cities to Live In. It is of no surprise to the residents, who call Sioux Falls home as they enjoy over 70 public parks, a scenic 20-mile bike trail, the largest one-story mall in all of America and four internationally recognized hospitals.

This flourishing city offers something for everyone. The Great Plains Zoo and Delbridge Museum features over 500 animals from around the world throughout its 45-acre facility. Young or old, you are always greeted by a new addition or discovery at this Sioux Falls destination.

Three perfectly manicured, public golf courses also call Sioux Falls home. Whether a pro or an amateur golfer the courses of Prairie Green, Elmwood and Kuehn Park provide golfers with a luxurious way to spend their summer days.

Sioux Falls also boasts an active cultural center. The Washington Pavilion of Arts and Science, located in downtown Sioux Falls, provides Sioux Falls with an incredible, hands on Science Center, a variety of theatrical performances each year in the Performing Arts Center and an eclectic display of artistry in their Visual Arts Center. The Washington Pavilion is also home to the WellsFargo Cinedome, an IMAX theater that hosts two awe-inspiring IMAX movies each season.

Health care options in Sioux Falls parallel those of major metropolitan centers with state of the art research facilities, incredible primary care programs and a recently constructed Children´s Hospital.

When the sun sets the Sioux Falls nightlife comes out in full force. Affordable to fine dining options are found throughout the Sioux Falls city limits. Indulge in Mexican, French, Chinese, Japanese or good ole bar food at a variety of one-of-a-kind restaurants and chains.

If drinks and laughter are your plan for the evening, Sioux Falls offers a myriad of bar experiences. From the laid back vibe of Tre, to a rowdy crowd at Wileys, to the famous summer deck at Bracco, Sioux Falls citizens can pick and choose their night-time ambience.

Sioux Falls even offers something for your four-legged friends. Spencer Dog Park, located in central Sioux Falls, offers a fenced in facility for hours of furry fun. Four-spout drinking fountains are provided to keep dogs hydrated and healthy while they play. Dogs of all sizes are welcome to enjoy this city-kept park throughout the year.
