Create Your Perfect Vacation in Sioux Falls
If you could create your perfect vacation, what would it be? Hiking and biking on a trail that follows the river? Free access to local artwork? How about your choice of family, romantic, or group dining? Check off all of those boxes (and more) in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
Explore the Outdoors
Summers were made to be spent outside, and Sioux Falls will help you make the most of it. Grab a bike (we have complimentary ones available) and hit the trail right out back for a continuous, 20-mile loop around the city. You’ll follow the river and pass the Falls downtown—or you can keep it short with plenty of parks and places to stop. The whole trail is paved and perfect for riders and hikers of all ages.
Soak up some sun at Wild Water West, South Dakota’s largest waterpark and the perfect place to cool off. It’s complete with a Lazy River, Wave Pool, and baby pool, plus a swim-up bar, go karts, batting cages, and more. Basically, it’s everything you need for the ideal summer afternoon—all in one place. (But if you find yourselves wanting more, head to the Great Plains Zoo.)
For a more relaxed activity, try the Willow Run Golf Course. It’s a premier golf experience and one of the most unique courses in the area, complete with The Willows restaurant that overlooks the course. Or take a stroll through Downtown and the SculptureWalk, the country’s largest and most recognized annual exhibit of public art sculptures. Pro tip: schedule your trip for a First Friday event, held every month in the summer, to experience Downtown Sioux Falls at its best!
For those hot summer days where you’d rather stay inside, you still have plenty of options for activity! Head to the Empire Mall for more than 140 stores, as well as a diverse food court, that offers everything you’re looking for (and probably some you’re not).
Combine education with adventure at the Washington Pavillion or the Butterfly House and Aquarium. Either one has interactive educational exhibits with hands-on activities so entertaining, the kids won’t think of it as learning.
Still need to burn off some steam? Sky Zone is the place to go. With wall-to-wall trampolines and games like Ultimate Dodgeball, you can take your vacation to new heights.
If you find yourselves in need of energy, it might be time for a meal. You’re in luck: we have more than 700 restaurants for you to choose from. Get a true downtown experience when you try Josiah’s for breakfast. They serve it all day and offer made-from-scratch English muffins, cinnamon and caramel rolls, cookies, and so much more. (And don’t forget the coffee!)
We’d also suggest taking the family to the Falls Overlook Cafe for a meal with a view. It’s located in Falls Park and gives you a beautiful view of the falls. Need a romantic night out? You need to try Morrie’s Steakhouse—located within walking distance of our hotel!
