    The USS South Dakota Memorial

    Battleship South Dakota Memorial

    The battleship USS South Dakota, designated BB-57, served with great distinction in the US Navy during World War II. The same class as the Alabama and Massachusetts, she was armed with nine 16-inch guns, twenty five-inch guns, and a formidable array of light anti-aircraft guns.

    Clearly, there would be no way to bring such a giant warship so far inland, but Sioux Falls has an organization dedicated to the memory of the ship and all the sailors who served aboard her. They have created a fitting memorial to all of them, which is worh seeing. One of the battleship's massive 16-inch guns is on display, as well as a model of the ship, some assorted memorabilia, and a historical plaque.

    Falls Park

    Park Falls

    Pretty much anyone who lives in Sioux Falls or the surrounding area has visited Park Falls. Sioux Falls was named for these waterfalls, and this is a really nice park, especially on a sunny day. Obviously, since it's a park it's free to visit, and there are a few other things there besides the falls to see--some statues and the ruins of an Old Mill, a couple of bridges so that you can cross to the other side of the falls too. There are always people there climbing on the distinctive red rocks, and believe me, it's quite fun. :)
