Planning a trip to Central South Dakota soon? Here’s what to do.

 

Tour the Capitol

If you’ve forgotten your state capitals since elementary school, Pierre is South Dakota’s, and you can visit the Capitol building for a tour. Built in 1910, the structure’s Neoclassical architecture includes scagliola columns and stained glass, and the grounds encompass various memorials. Take a look at the floor tiles as you explore the Capitol building; blue tiles are scattered sporadically throughout the space and visitors are challenged to find every single blue tile.

Experience the Rodeo

At Casey Tibbs South Dakota Rodeo Center, you’ll learn about rodeo culture, as well as the legacy of Casey Tibbs.

 

Don’t Miss Dignity Sculpture

Whatever you do while in Central South Dakota, don’t miss a stop by Dignity sculpture near Chamberlain. The 50-foot, stainless-steel art installation depicts an Indigenous woman in Plains garb, overlooking the Missouri River. It’s a can’t-miss photo op.

SleepKeeper

The older you get as a traveler, the more a comfortable night’s sleep matters and, for many, the difference between a night of painful tossing and turning and a night of restful sleep all comes down to two things: the mattress and the pillow you sleep on. If you've found the perfect combination of both these things at home, you might wish you could simply take your bed with you, whenever and wherever you travel. While you’re out of luck as far as the mattress, one new product does intend to help you take your personal pillow on the go, without sacrificing space in your suitcase.
