Sioux Falls is the largest city in South Dakota, and has an appropriately large variety of activities and attractions. If you’re bored in Sioux Falls, then you’re just not trying. Like almost any city in the western U.S., Sioux Falls has plenty to keep history-buffs interested. Visitors can take any number of self-guided historic walking tours that will show them around Sioux Falls while it teaches them its history.
Attractions like Buffalo Ridge Cowboy Ghost Town will amuse and entertain, but more serious-minded history lovers will probably want to check out the Center for Western Studies or the Old Courthouse Museum and its Plains Indians display. Those that need a break from cowboys and Indians can stop by the Delbridge Museum of Natural History and enjoy its fascinating collection of mounted wildlife dioramas.
