Ways to Explore Sioux Falls
Palisades State Park
Flanking Split Rock Creek, gorgeous red cliffs climb up to 50 feet above the water at Palisades State Park (20 miles northeast of Sioux Falls). Swimming isn't allowed, but picturesque picnic spots -- perfect for relaxing with a book -- are abundant. In fact, one summer ranger program is "Photography at the Palisades" (605/594-3824; gfp.sd.gov).
