What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Sioux Falls

I love how large, yet private our neighborhood is. I go for daily walks and am able to take a variety of routes and the homes are beautiful and yards well maintained. It's quiet and friendly with a park very close. Also a mile away from the Interstate.

It is relatively quiet and safe. The neighbors are relatively friendly. It is just a good place to live.

I like that it is close to everywhere I need to go. I like driving downtown to go to restaurants and shopping.

There is grocery store nearby and good shopping and restaurants in the neighborhood. I would also like to see more different shopping options put in the neighborhood.

Our neighborhood is just residential and no businesses nearby. It is a quiet neighborhood and most people are retired.

My neighborhood is very quiet. All neighbors constantly work on their yards and/or plowing snow. You can walk at any time of day or night and feel completely safe. Neighbors very friendly and helpful.

Living in Sioux Falls, SD


Sioux Falls is the largest city in South Dakota. The 177,000 residents of the city refer to it as “The Heart of America” because of its friendly people and the diverse attractions.
