Flights to Sioux Falls
Sioux Falls is the largest city in South Dakota, located in the eastern part of the state and close to the border with Minnesota. The city is named for the nearby falls on the Big Sioux River
The airport in Sioux Falls is fairly small, and does not handle incoming international flights. Even so, the Sioux Falls Regional Airport (airport code: FSD) is still one of two major airports in South Dakota. There are no direct flights to Sioux Falls from Johannesburg, and only Delta offers a flight route with one transfer (in Atlanta). All other flights to Sioux Falls have 2 connections. A common route is through London and then Chicago. South African Airways, British Midland and British Airways all have this flight plan. Another option is to fly with Northwest Airlines and stop in Amsterdam and then Minneapolis.

The Tourist Attractions in Sioux Falls:
To see the falls that gave the city its name, take a walk through Falls Park. It’s in the north end of the city, and has talking trails and bike paths around the cascading water falls. You can find the park on East Falls Park Drive. There are also a number of other great public parks around Sioux Falls, such as Terrace Park and Sherman Park.
Great Plains Zoo
The Great Plains Zoo is open 7 days a week, and is home to more than 850 animals including big cats, birds, and reptiles. They also have a new African Savannah exhibit. The Delbridge Museum of Natural History is also part of the grounds, and filled with dioramas and displays of mounted animal specimens from around the world.
Sertoma Butterfly House
At the south end of Sioux Falls is the Sertoma Butterfly House, where you can walk through an open and natural habitat filled with flying butterflies. The Butterfly house is on S. Oxbow Avenue and there is an admission fee to enter. There are certain times each month set aside just for photographers.
USS South Dakota Battleship Memorial
This is one of the best free sights of Sioux Falls, though only open between Memorial Day and Labor Day. It’s not actually the ship itself, but a memorial filled with historical artefacts from the battleship. The USS South Dakota was the most decorated ship in WWII. The memorial is located in Sherman Park.
Old Courthouse Museum
The Old Courthouse Museum is the place to learn more about local history, and you can’t miss the big clock tower of this restored 1800s building. Three floors of the building house the museum’s collection of Sioux Falls history. It’s open 7 days a week, except for major holidays. Admission is free.
When Should You Visit?:
You might want to avoid Sioux Falls in the heat of the summer, which would be July. Temperatures will reach 30C (86F) and it will be quite humid. August is just about the same, though a little cooler. Winters are around freezing, with January being the coldest. Best times to book a holiday would therefore be late spring (May and June) and early autumn (September and October).
