Getting Around Sioux Falls is Easy

Recently while visiting Sioux Falls we realized what an easily navigated city we had discovered.

Our home away from home was the Ramkota Hotel. The staff there were exceptionally friendly and accommodating. They shuttled us to many noted gems of the city and environs at nearly a moment’s notice. For a moderately priced hotel the amenities were outstanding. A fabulous indoor water park and pool were only a couple summer-loving aspects.

Frankie’s Sports Bar and Grill, on property, was a great place to relax in the evenings with half-priced appetizers most evenings, outstanding, knowledgeable, creative and friendly bartenders, and all in a smoke free and inviting environment. It was right on property and afforded us the chance to snack and decompress from sight seeing without ever having to set foot outside our hotel.

One of the best and most memorable downtown gems was 121 acre Falls Park. The Trolley took us there where we enjoyed the Visitors Center, outlook, Queen Bee Flour Mill and historic Passenger Depot. Of course the falls themselves were the pinnacle of our visit. At night the narrated mulct-media, brightly-colored, light show at the falls provided a gripping glimpse into the history and fortitude of the fascinating area. Our hotel shuttle picked us up right after the performance.
