Most Americans have heard of a little town called Sioux Falls, South Dakota. To the uninitiated or the untraveled you probably think of a "Heartland of America" kind of small town where everyone knows everyone else. To the contrary Sioux Falls, South Dakota is the county seat of Minnehaha County and has a population of 154,997 people. It is said to be the "anchor" of one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the United States. The population has increased by 22% since the 2000 US Census. The Sioux Falls Metropolitan Statistical area consists of four South Dakota Counties and has a population estimated at 232,930 people.
Some folks may assume that there isn't a lot of culture or refined dining and entertainment in a place like Sioux Falls. Those people would be as wrong as the ones who think Sioux Falls is a small town. Sioux Falls has a number of attractions, historical landmarks, zoos, and theaters (and I don't just mean for movies). For fine dining and cultural enrichment you need look no further than the Sioux Falls, South Dakota yellow pages. Business in Sioux Falls is good, there are hundreds of small, medium sized, and even a few large businesses listed in the Sioux Falls, South Dakota business Directory and of course Sioux Falls would certainly welcome more if you are considering moving or opening your business in Sioux Falls.
There is also a number of old west Galleries, points of interest, and museums in the area as well. The Sioux Empire Medical Museum is a great place to spend a day with your family. Or maybe you would enjoy visiting Buffalo Ridge or poking around the Cowboy Ghost Town, or the Thomas Kinkade Signature Gallery. For more mature entertainment there is the Washington Pavilion of Art and Science. Interesting and educational places like the Center for Western Studies, the Delbridge Museum of Natural History are wonderful places to wander around some afternoon and steep yourself in American and Native American history and culture. You can learn about historical events which occurred right in and around Old Town Sioux Falls back in the days when it was mostly prairie and the years that Sioux Falls spent as an American Frontier Town. Sioux Falls South Dakota is definitely a lot more interesting and lot bigger than most people would think, unless they've been there.
