Several years ago, Sioux Falls, SD was voted the best place in the country to live. At the time, being rather prejudiced favorably toward the western half of the state, I wondered why it merited that distinction. Having visited it again, however, I understand what a truly nice town it is.
The Sertoma Butterfly House was all aflutter with these beauties, in larger number than butterfly houses we've seen in large cities.
St. Joseph's Cathedral was striking and welcomingly quiet and peaceful inside.
How nice it must be to have all these waterfalls in the city park!
Whimsical sculpture lines the downtown streets. This was one of my favorites.
