5 Reasons Why You Should Stay and Play in Sioux Falls

The conference has ended and it's time to say goodbye to colleagues. But why are you rushing out of here? No one is pushing you out. Why not extend your trip by staying in Sioux Falls a little bit longer to really get a full experience? Here are some of our top reasons why we think you should stay and play in Sioux Falls after your business trip.


Soak in the atmosphere of downtown Sioux Falls to see what all the buzz is about. The charming vibe is certainly noticeable by looking around at not only the storefronts, but also in the friendly interactions with the locals. Admire the wonderful pieces of art that make up our SculptureWalk, take a casual stroll along the river, or stop in one of our many great restaurants and shops.


Sioux Falls is home to a blossoming brewery scene as of late, and we couldn't be more proud to talk about it. But don't take our word for it; go out on your own little brewery tour as you sample delicious craft beer in a variety of environments.

Explore the Great Outdoors

Take advantage of our warm summer days or crisp fall seasons for an afternoon hike at some of our area parks. While we don't have the scenic mountain views like some other states have, we do still have great hiking trails in a variety of nature settings that provide a sense of calm and relaxation. Explore places such as Great Bear Recreation Park, Good Earth State Park, Palisades State Park, Newton Hills State Park and more.

Food Scene

You can't leave Sioux Falls without getting a taste of our extraordinary culinary offerings! Indulge your taste buds with a variety of cuisines such as Vegetarian, Italian, Indian, Guatemalan, and many more! Be sure to try one of World Champion Pastry Chef Chris Hanmer's offerings - CH Patisserie or Parlour Ice Cream House.


Plan your extended trip around an event! There's always something going on in Sioux Falls, whether it's a concert, festival, sporting event, downtown block party, or something entirely different.
