Nestled near the border of Iowa and Minnesota, surrounded by the rugged landscape of the Badlands is Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Named after the Sioux Native American Tribe, you can picture wandering herds of buffalo and the people who once walked across its rough terrain. Sioux Falls hosts many national parks and historic attractions, perfect for a unique family vacation. Of course, having so many parks, you would be tempted to bring your dog, horse, cat, or gerbil along, and why not? Sioux Falls has many places perfect for hosting your family friends.

If it’s off-leash adventure you seek, try Spencer Park. Rolling with green fields and bordered by the Big Sioux River, you and your dog will adore the freedom this park holds. He can run for ages and, of course, splash around in the river until his heart is content. There are fenced-in areas as well for more controlled play time if you need it. This is a great place to go to blow off some steam or possibly meet some new canine companions! Perhaps your family is the more adventurous type—Palisades Park is probably what you are looking for. This unique state park is full of pink quartzite rock formations that are billions of years old. You could be hiking over hills and cliffs that Jessie James supposedly hid in after a robbery! As for accommodation, your pet is more than welcome to stay with you either in a tent or one of their six available cabins. A wonderful closing to a day full of adventure and history!

Once a year there is a party—a pool party for pooches. The annual Gone to the Dogs Swim is a great social activity to get your dog acquainted with fellow canines. You can take your dog to swim and play for hours at the Sioux Falls Park and Recreation Center in the early autumn. What a fun night to let your pooch cool off and play with some friends. While a number of public parks in Sioux Falls is vast, not all of them are pet-friendly. This is due, mostly, to safety and health reasons. However, that is changing as the city rapidly continues to grow. You definitely will not lack a place to stay in Sioux Falls, for there are several hotels that offer pet-friendly rooms, such as Comfort Suites, BestWestern, and many more. The city is right near I-90, so it’s no wonder they are so accommodating.

If you get hungry while exploring the historic downtown or need a place to rest after shopping all day, there are many restaurants who will greet you with a smile and let you sit in a place where your dog can join you while you eat. Bagel Boy is a great bagel shop where you can let your dog sit outside with you while you enjoy a tasty snack. Mixed is a salad speciality restaurant that also allows dogs on the terrace. Maybe you can even sneak a few scraps for your best friend! Sioux Falls is one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S. and that includes pet-friendliness. Fido will love it, and we're sure he'll enjoy experiencing some of the original history of the U.S. while also enjoying great walks down the bustling downtown. They will do all they can to make you, and your pet feel at home!

If you and your pup are strolling through downtown, be sure to grab some pawsome food at the numerous eateries that are dog-friendly. K Restaurant has a rotating menu that features seafood and meats plus pasta. Queen City Bakery is great to grab all your baked goods, and maybe even share a peanut butter cookie with Fido. Monks House of Ale Repute loves when you bring your dog to join you to try over 150 American and International brews on their outdoor deck. If Monks is too busy, just walk a short distance down the street to Fernson on 8th which allows your leashed pup to join you, and offers a lineup of ales, stouts and lagers.

Leashed pups are welcome to join you in adventuring around Falls Park. This park isn’t your typical park since it has not only a waterfall, but tons of red quartzite rocks. There is a walking path for you and your dog to enjoy, and you’re even allowed to venture out on the rocks in some places. There are bridges that give off beautiful views and an observation tower.  Inside of the observation tower is the Sioux Falls Overlook Café which welcomes your dog to join you for a bite before you continue on your adventure. Bathrooms are available for people, and there are water stops for both you and your pup to use to stay hydrated.

Lien Park is a small, but pawsome park that your dog will love to roam around. This park does allow your pup to be off-leash, but do take note that the park is not fenced in and close to a freeway. The park is filled with lush grass which is great for fetch, running, and rolling around. Due to recent construction in the park, do watch out for nails that may have gotten away or loud noises near the construction areas. There are some trees to bring shade to the park, but there aren’t any benches or water stations for the dogs to stay hydrated, so be sure to bring your own drinks.

Spencer Park is a great off-leash dog park for your pup to have a great time and wander around without that pesky leash. The park is separated by large and small breeds, and both parks have a lot of space for running around. The park provides benches for the owners to relax on, and has water fountains for the dogs to stay hydrated. If you want to have a little more of an adventure with your pup, just go right outside the dog park and explore the trails that Spencer Park offers. The trails are often filled with walkers, runners, and bikers so you won’t be alone while exploring.
