Kadoka is a nice place
"Bright Lining in a cloud over Kadoka"
Kadoka is a small town over slightly more than 700 people. It is located next to the I-90 highway in the south central part of South Dakota in the United States. It can be easily reached by exit (American term for junction) 150 and 152 on I-90.
I stayed here by chance as during the first week of August. The town of Sturgis, which is about 100 mi. (160 km) away, has a very large motorcycle convention. All the hotels in Rapid City, the largest city in the area, as well as all the hotels that I contacted in the southwestern part of the state were fully booked. A nice lady in the South Dakota tourist office near the South Dakota-Iowa border (eastern part of the state) suggesting contacting small family owned motels. I found one with a vacancy in Kadoka, 100 mi. away from Sturgis. Even then, a few motorcyclists were staying in Kadoka.
South Dakota is one of the few American states that does not impose a state income tax. The federal government in Washington, DC imposes a federal income tax. Some states charge 2-3% to as much as 11% or more of tax on one's income.
Kadoka is a nice place to visit. It isn't very big. One can cover the town fairly quickly as a result. It is difficult to get lost because the streets are arranged in a grid pattern. There are 2 major streets, the business loop I-90 (different from the main I-90 highway) and the main street perpendicular (90 angle to) the business loop.
It is possible that a resident of Kadoka may find the town very boring with little to do. However, in my short stay, I found the town charming and with more to do than most towns that have about 700 people. The Depot Museum one of the highlights of the town. The nearby missile silo and launch control facility and Badlands National Park are also worthwhile to see. Of course, Mount Rushmore, the mountain with the heads of 4 U.S. Presidents carved on to the mountain, is about 100 miles away.
