If you’re thinking about heading out on a family vacation, consider camping in Sioux Falls SD. This area is incredibly historic and is named for the Sioux tribe of the American Indians and the waterfalls of the Big Sioux River. So with this gorgeous landscape being located only a few blocks away from today’s downtown district, there are plenty of Sioux Falls attractions available to keep any family happy.
Here are some fast facts about Sioux Falls and some of our favorite things to do there.
The landscapes are beautiful
While the waterfalls may be the town’s number one attraction, there are plenty of other things to see around the area. Some things you can expect to see include lush green landscapes, red rock formations, and beautiful rivers just waiting to be explored.
The first four door car was developed in Sioux Falls
We all think that Henry Ford developed the first car, but all of his models only had two doors. Thomas Fawick first created his “Fawick Flyer” back in 1908, and is most notorious for transporting U.S. president Teddy Roosevelt in a 1910 parade in Sioux Falls.
The Kirby Science Center
You always need to have a rainy day activity in case your vacation is put on hold. The Kirby Science Center is one of our favorite family friendly Sioux Falls attractions. It is a hands-on museum with over 100 exhibits that will bring the kid out in anyone, no matter their age.
It is one of the oldest human settlements in the United States
The Good Earth State Park in southeast Sioux Falls was an important gathering place for Native American tribes as far back as the year 1300. This makes it one of the oldest places on record for human settlements in the United States. It was used as a sacred place for seasonal ceremonies and as a marketplace for multiple Sioux people and officially became a state park in 2013. You can go and explore this beautiful place during your family vacation and just try to imagine the people that came here before you.
