I enjoy Sioux Falls since there's a little bit of everything. Airport near the north end for when I go on vacation, plenty of great restaurants around, some really nice bars downtown, and I can generally find what I'm looking for here.

The amount of construction going around where I live and work

It's a great city to raise your family. The biggest city in South Dakota, there is plenty to do in Sioux Falls. The schools are great, there is plenty of recreation and the people are super nice.

Visit Falls Park, the bike trail, Palisades (about a 20 minute drive) and go for a walk downtown to see all the sculptures of Sculpture Walk.

The crime seems to be a lot lower compared to other places I lived. The worst thing I see is that the people drive really terribly here, major road rage all of the time and swerving. My favorite part of this town is easily our accessible everything is.

How close everything is. With the bonus of the very tolerable weather, it's very easy to just walk to where you need to get to here without a car being 100% necessary.
