Scenic falls in the city of Sioux Falls.

Falls Park in Sioux Falls is one of the most popular attractions in the area, and for good reason. It is a beautiful park in the heart of the city, spanning 123 acres and consisting of waterfalls, trails, a lookout, and a café. 

Paved sidewalk trails run all around the falls and offer great lookout spots to sit by the falls or take some pictures. Be sure to visit in the winter when they're frozen over and, in December, they light up the falls and turn it into an amazing wonderland of nature and lights. 

If you're in the Sioux Falls area, I'd definitely recommend checking the park out. It's free and can be a short trip or a day-long activity.

Photograph the Falls at Falls Park Reviews

The falls are truly beautiful and definitely worth the quick pit stop if you are in Sioux Falls. My only complaint is it can be very crowded in peak season.

The falls are a great place to go for a walk, have a picnic, or shoot some photos. The park is in the city so it's easy access makes it a popular spot for visitors.
