About KSFY/KDLT:

Sioux Falls is one of the fastest growing cities in the Upper Midwest, Sioux Falls is home to more than 200,000 people with healthcare and finance two of the bigger drivers of the workforce in Sioux Falls.

There is never a shortage of things to do in Sioux Falls. Summers are packed with outdoor festivals, concert events and many enjoy the city’s nearly 30 miles of bike trails. Of course, it is difficult to be in Sioux Falls and not make a trip to the beautiful falls on the Sioux River that give our community its name.  While winter’s in South Dakota can be challenging, it doesn't mean people hibernate. For the adventurous and bold, there are plenty of outdoor activities including hiking or cross-country skiing in one of the many area state and national parks. Others make the short journey to a regional ski resort or grab their ice skates and head at numerous rinks around town.

In 2014, the city built a 12,000-seat arena that has been named one of the best concert venues in the country, hosting everything from PBR to legends of the entertainment industry such as Paul McCartney, Carrie Underwood, and Ed Sheeran. The city is also home to a new indoor aquatic center, an indoor ice skating facility, a basketball arena, and an indoor tennis complex.

Looking for a place to eat? Not to worry, As Sioux Falls grows, so do the culinary options available, including many great locally-owned restaurants. And if you want to get away for the weekend, you can drive to Omaha in three hours, Minneapolis in four, and the Black Hills in five.
