Area Attractions

Sioux Falls, one of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas in the heartland of America, is the financial, medical, retail and cultural center of the region.

That means you’ll have access to plenty of attractions and diversions for recreation, entertainment, shopping, dining and more. It’s not uncommon for students to make spontaneous trips to Suburban Bowl for 50-cent bowling or escape to the nearby Empire Mall. And Sioux Falls boasts over 500 options for eating out, as well as a thriving arts scene.

Sioux Falls is home to four semi-professional sports teams: the Canaries (baseball), the Storm (arena football), the Stampede (hockey), and the SkyForce (basketball). A fantastic 20-mile bike trail loops around the city following the Big Sioux River, with several adjoining public parks. Great Bear Recreation offers downhill skiing, cross-country skiing and snowboarding in the winter and hiking trails in the summer. Sioux Falls is also home to a number of golf courses, a water park, and of course, Falls Park, the city’s namesake.
