2) Sioux Falls, South Dakota
The number one attraction in Sioux Falls lends its name to the city, too. Falls Park, housing the Sioux Falls, is the city’s namesake and claim to fame. It’s 123-acres of falls with a 50-foot viewing tower for panoramic viewing pleasure, all within walking distance of downtown. Looping around the falls and city is The River Greenway, a 19-mile trail running parallel to the Big Sioux River. This is a popular way to exercise, see the city, and glimpse some wildlife. The Butterfly House & Aquarium houses South Dakota’s only public saltwater aquarium. Visitors will find hands-on learning at the Shark & Stingray Touch Pool and the Pacific Tide Pool, with plenty of marine critters to discover. There are also 800 free-flying butterflies to admire. The cost of transportation, goods and services, and groceries are below the national average, making this an appealing place for visitors to stretch their dollar.
