Along the Route
See The Falls Themselves
Any trip to Sioux Falls should start with seeing the falls themselves. Located within Falls Park, the Big Sioux River rolls into the signature falls of the city. Falls Park itself is 123 acres with biking and walking trails that connect to the whole city. During a visit to the park see if you can spot the remains of the 19th century Queen Bee Mill across the river.
