Young Professionals

Sioux Falls ranked #1 in smartasset’s review of the best cities for young professionals due to affordability, labor force participation and concentration of entertainment establishments. What’s not to like? For specific neighborhood recommendations we start with Downtown Sioux Falls. It ain’t Manhattan but it’s faster-paced than the more suburban options and it is filled with great restaurants, boutique shops, cafes and micro-breweries. Pretty much everything is within walking distance but you can also take the Downtown Trolley all around for just $2 a day.

McKennan Park


If you’re looking for an upscale spot check out McKennan Park. One of the oldest neighborhoods in Sioux Falls, it has some of the city's oldest, most historic and beautiful homes.These include smaller craftsman’s and much bigger colonials. These homes also surround the city’s oldest park, which has a performance bandshell, sunken garden and pool for the littlest of beans. Cherry Lake is another ideal location, locals can live lakeside and get to fish, swim and enjoy the beaches during the warm months.
