Have you ever thought about going to a strange place and experiencing a different way of life? My two friends, Gregary Victor and Sherry Cronin, and I had this idea. We are all nature and adventure lovers, so we decided to go hunting in Sioux Falls and experience the culture of the Midwest of America. Sioux Falls is the largest city in South Dakota and also a place with rich history and culture. We spent an unforgettable month there, not only enjoying the excitement and fun of hunting but also exploring many beautiful sights and tasting delicious food. In this article, I will share our hunting, sightseeing, and tasting experiences with you, so you can also feel the charm of Sioux Falls.

Hunting was our main purpose for going to Sioux Falls, and also our most anticipated activity. We are all nature and adventure lovers, so we wanted to experience what it was like to chase wild game on the prairies of the Midwest. We chose to go in October, because that was the best hunting season in South Dakota, with suitable weather and abundant game. We mainly hunted wild pheasants, which are the most famous game in South Dakota and also the dream of hunting enthusiasts.

We booked a professional hunting agency called White Lake Hunting Lodge, which provided us with a full range of services, including accommodation, food, transportation, guides, dogs and ammunition. They had a large territory, with 7,000 acres of private land planted with various crops and grasslands, attracting a lot of wild pheasants. Their guides were experienced hunters who led us to hunt on different terrains, making us feel different challenges and fun. Their dogs were also great, they could keenly find and track pheasants, making it easier for us to shoot. They also provided us with 12 and 20 caliber guns and ammunition, so we didn’t have to worry about bringing our own equipment.

Since we were hunting at night, infrared binoculars were essential. This time we chose a cost-effective Chinese brand called Wildguarder, which had a clear picture quality, a powerful magnification, a stable performance, and a durable material. It allowed us to see the position and movement of the game clearly in the dark, making us more confident and accurate in shooting. It also allowed us to appreciate the beautiful scenery on the grassland at night, giving us a sense of mystery and romance.

We harvested a lot during the four-day hunting process. We shot many pheasants and reached the limit every day. We also exercised, enhanced friendship, and experienced excitement. Hunting brought us closer to nature, taught us to respect life, and instilled gratitude for life. It also helped us develop self-awareness, challenge ourselves, and exceed our limitations. Hunting was an extraordinary way of life that brought unparalleled happiness and fulfillment.

In addition to hunting, we also used our free time to visit some attractions in Sioux Falls and experience the scenery and culture of this city. Sioux Falls is the largest city in South Dakota and also a place with rich history and diverse culture. We visited many interesting and beautiful places, which left a deep impression on me.

We went to Falls Park, which is the iconic attraction of Sioux Falls and also the origin of the city’s name. There is a river called Big Sioux River here, which forms a spectacular waterfall here, pouring down from a high place, making a deafening sound. There are many red rocks around the waterfall, which were formed by ancient lava and are very special. We walked around the waterfall, took photos, and felt the power and beauty of nature. We also climbed a tower called the Observation Tower, which allowed us to overlook the entire park and the city’s scenery, which was very spectacular.

We went to SculptureWalk & Arc of Dreams Monument, which is a project that displays various sculptures on the streets of downtown, and changes them every year. These sculptures are created by different artists, some are abstract, some are concrete, some are humorous, some are serious. They all show the artists’ views and imaginations of life and the world. We walked and stopped on the streets, admiring these sculptures, feeling the charm and creativity of art. We also saw a huge sculpture called Arc of Dreams Monument, which is composed of two curved steel structures that span over the Big Sioux River. It represents the distance and connection between dreams and reality, which is very meaningful.

We also went to Washington Pavilion, which is a comprehensive place that integrates art, science, education and entertainment. There is a science exploration center called Kirby Science Discovery Center here, which has many interactive displays and experiments that allow us to experience and learn scientific knowledge; a visual arts center called Visual Arts Center here, which displays many artworks from local and national artists, including paintings, sculptures, photography and so on; and a performing arts center called Husby Performing Arts Center here, which has a large theater and a small theater that can watch various performances, such as concerts, dances, dramas and so on.

We visited some attractions in Sioux Falls, not only appreciating the beauty of nature, but also learning the knowledge of science and art. We felt the diversity and charm of the city’s scenery and culture.



We also tasted some local food, feeling the flavor and atmosphere of the city. Sioux Falls has more than 700 restaurants, which can meet various tastes and needs, such as some typical Midwest American food and some unique food, which made us very satisfied.

It has a lot of classic American food, such as burgers, hot dogs, fries, salads and so on, as well as a lot of creative dishes, such as beef soup, chicken cheese roll, bacon cheese cake and so on. It also has a lot of kinds of milkshakes and coffee, so we can match them as we like. The food here is very rich and delicious, and the atmosphere is also very relaxed and pleasant, with music and TV and friendly waiters. Sioux Falls is a place worth visiting, it has a lot of things that surprise and touch us.

Then we went to Bread & Circus Sandwich Kitchen, a sandwich restaurant located in a small square in the city center. There are many types of sandwiches here, some traditional and some innovative, all made from fresh bread and high-quality ingredients. We tried some of their most popular sandwiches, such as roast beef sandwich, turkey bacon sandwich, BBQ chicken sandwich and so on, all of which were delicious. There are also many other foods here, such as salads, soups, chips and so on, as well as many drinks such as beer, soda water, juice and so on.
