Southeast South Dakota

Corn Palace

If you enjoy small towns, friendly diners, main street antique stores and the patchwork quilt of farmland, you will love visiting southeast South Dakota. In this region many quiet, historical small towns offer a glimpse of a rich rural life filled with community festivals, church activities, school events and comfort of knowing one's neighbors, even those in nearby towns. If shopping and cultural events are more your style, you’ll find a variety of locally-owned businesses as well as popular franchises and South Dakota’s largest mall in Sioux Falls. The Sioux Falls area boasts an active events calendar and a vibrant regional medical community in South Dakota’s biggest city. Travelers in Minnesota, Nebraska or Iowa will discover the two main thoroughfares—I-29 and I-90—that enter South Dakota through the southeast region. Tour the cascading waterfalls in Sioux Falls; visit scenic Dells and quartzite quarries; enjoy water sports and fishing on Lewis & Clark Lake and the Missouri River; discover the National Music Museum in Vermillion; hunt South Dakota's pheasants; and for a unique South Dakota experience, plan an outing to Mitchell, where you can see the world famous Corn Palace and an authentic Native American village.
