Endless Fun in Sioux Falls

You could spend days exploring Sioux Falls, the largest city in South Dakota (pop. 195,000). And maybe you will. Start in Downtown Sioux Falls (DTSF), the heart of the city. Phillips Avenue bustles with shops, restaurants and lounges that stay busy long after the sun goes down. Grab a craft beer at Fernson Brewing Company’s taproom or local ice cream from Falls Overlook Cafe which features Stensland Ice Cream. Want to work off those calories? The 29-mile Sioux Falls Bike Trail follows the Big Sioux River Greenway, highlighted by the city’s namesake Falls of the Big Sioux. Spot wildlife in the forested areas of several city parks and admire the downtown skyline to include the stunning Arc of Dreams. Spend some time learning about Sioux Falls’ history at the Old Courthouse Museum. The building itself was constructed with native Sioux quartzite in 1889 and served as the Minnehaha County courthouse until 1962. See the very first Fawick Flyer, an automobile built by Sioux Falls entrepreneur Thomas Fawick in the early 1900s.
