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.
