Sioux Falls, South Dakota is a bustling metropolis, the largest in the state. The city gets its name from the Big Sioux River which runs directly through the centre of town. For thousands of years, Native Americans have called the area home and used the recourses of the powerful river to make a living. There are many ancient burial mounds all along the river, displaying the deep history of the area. The downtown is host to a number of events such as the Sculpture Walk which is held every summer. The event allows you to walk the streets of the downtown area amongst elaborate sculptures on display and for sale by the artists. Book your car hire in Sioux Falls with Auto Europe and save!

Take your car hire just a few miles from Sioux Falls and discover the Newton Hills State Park. The rolling hills of the Coteau des Prairie at the eastern boundary of South Dakota provide a lovely place for some rest and relaxation. As you drive through the vast prairies of South Dakota, you cannot help but notice the tower peaks of the park as you approach, stretching over 2,000 feet above sea level amongst a dark forest. Due to its protecting trees and encroaching mountains, the area has been the subject of legends of buried treasure and mountain-dwelling thieves. Take a camping trip or just come walk the winding footpaths as you admire the over 200 species of animal that call the park home.
