Sioux Falls in South Dakota was not on the top of our priority list to visit, that being said after camping in the area we decided to pay a visit. We headed straight for the Falls of the Big Sioux River, where the Big Sioux can be seen dramatically cascading it's way down the rocky outcrops. It was much more impressive than first expected. It provides great photo opportunities, we played around with some slow shutter speeds and had a great time just admiring the falls.
Falls Park is a gorgeous park set in the middle of Sioux Falls and provides a perfect little retreat or picnic spot. We spent a few hours walking around the park, along the river trails and by the waterfall at dusk - It was so incredibly peaceful. At night the entire park and falls are illuminated and in my opinion is the best time to go. The visitor centre is a great place for information and provides a great little observation tower you can go up for free. This site was once home to the large, 7 story Queen Bee Mill which was built in 1881. Today not much more than the foundations remain but the information provided gives a great glimpse into the history of the place and the importance of Sioux Falls in terms of Industry.
