If you are looking for the best moving company in South Dakota, your search is over!
In your move to South Dakota you will find that it is an expansive, grassy Midwestern U. S. state named after the Sioux Native American tribes of the same name. South Dakota shares borders with North Dakota, Iowa, Wyoming, Minnesota, Montana, and Nebraska. The Missouri River divides the state into two geographical halves, known to locals as "East River" and "West River".
Most of the state's population is in the east where the soil is rich and much farming occurs. In the western half, ranching occurs more than farming. Black Hills, the pine-covered mountains revered by the Sioux natives, are situated in the southwest region of the state. South Dakota has a temperate continental climate, experiencing four distinct seasons and precipitation varying from moderate to semi-arid depending on which side of the river. Some notable celebrities from South Dakota are Tom Brokaw, Mary Hart, sketch comedian Timmy Williams, and Rose Wilder Lane, daughter of Laura Ingalls Wilder who was known for writing the children’s book series Little House on the Prairie.
In the Black Hills near Keystone, you can see the famous granite sculpture carved into the face of the mountain, Mount Rushmore. This popular tourist destination features 60-foot sculptures of the heads George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln. Originally, the idea was conceived by South Dakota historian Doane Robinson, but it was sculpted by Gutzon Borglum and his son, Lincoln Borglum.
The state’s capital, Pierre, features historic homes and the Oahe Dam. Jagged rocks and uniquely formed hills create an interesting landscape in the Badlands National Park. Custer also has a state park perfect for hiking and other outdoor adventures. North of Custer is a work in progress monument of Chief Standing Bear at Crazy Horse Memorial. It is possible to tour Mammoth Site in Hot Springs, a building housing a large sinkhole where sixty mammoth skeletons were discovered and still being excavated.
