Mesmerizing Falling Water of the Big Sioux River


    

As the namesake for Sioux Falls, the Falls of the Big Sioux River are a must-see for anyone visiting southeast South Dakota. With a total of 123 acres, Falls Park is just a short walk away from the downtown area. In addition to watching and listening to the water, there's opportunities to get some exercise, grab a bite to eat and even learn about more local sites to add to your itinerary.

Social Media Description

Are you a waterfall lover?

We had not originally planned on stopping at Sioux Falls, but the more that I read about Falls Park, I decided that we couldn't pass it up. The Falls of the Big Sioux River flow over, around and through the craggy pink-hued quartzite rock. There's paved walking paths plus several viewing platforms as well as plenty of spots on the rocks to stop, listen, watch and enjoy the sights and sounds.

Also located within Falls Park are some of the city's oldest buildings including the ruins of the Queen Bee Flour Mill and today's Falls Overlook Café which was once the Light and Power Company Building. There's also permanent and rotating sculptures located throughout the park. The Monarch of the Plains was sculpted from a single piece of mahogany granite weighing in at 12 tons!

When you think of favorite waterfalls, which come to the top of your mind?
