So you could opt for congested stop & go highway travel, dotted with intermittent road construction detours, crowded campgrounds, hotels, motels, restaurants, etc., or you could "staycation".

If this year's WalletHub Best Cities for Staycations 2023 Report is any indication - Sioux Falls is a pretty great place for a stay-at-home vacation.

WalletHub crunched the numbers from 182 American cities in three basic vacation category necessities; 1) Recreation, 2) Food & Entertainment, and 3) Rest & Relaxation.

Recreation included the number of places where you could do the usual fun vacation stuff, like swim, golf, hike, bike, picnic, and shop.

Food and Entertainment options included movies, festivals, museums, zoos, arcades, and eateries of all kinds.

Finally, the Rest & Relaxation area considered the number of beaches, beauty salons, spas, house cleaning services, and the idealness of the weather conditions.

Sioux Falls did fairly well in all categories, (placing 86th overall), and why not? We have an exceptional park system, great public pools, and aquatic centers, tons of shopping opportunities, and well over 7 million places to eat! (That might be a bit of an exaggeration, but you know where I'm coming from!).

Sioux Falls is a great staycation location due to its unique blend of natural beauty and urban amenities. From the stunning Falls Park with its cascading waterfalls to the vibrant downtown area filled with shops, restaurants, and cultural attractions, there is something for everyone to enjoy without the need for extensive travel.

Whether you're seeking outdoor adventures, art and history exhibits, or simply a relaxing getaway, Sioux Falls offers a delightful staycation experience.

So if you're like me, and you're perfectly willing to make some time for yourself, and your family- - while avoiding the travel headaches - take a chillin' staycation.
