With an estimated population of 877,790 and a land mass of 77,176 miles, South Dakota has the fifth least dense population in the United States.

  • Sioux Falls
  • Rapid City
  • Aberdeen
  • Brookings
  • Watertown
  • Mitchell

South Dakota is the ideal place to live if you like being outdoors. There's ample opportunity for hunting, fishing, skiing, hiking, horseback riding, and more. During the warm months, large chunks of the state's residents as well as tourists, flock to Lake Sharpe, Lewis and Clarke Lake, Cheyenne River, Missouri River, Missouri National Recreational River, Big Sioux River, Lake Francis Case, White River, James River, and Lake Oahe to engage in a wide assortment of water activities that range from rafting to fishing to swimming.

The summer months are also a popular time to set aside time to explore Crazy Horse Memorial Park, Badlands National Park, Mount Rushmore National Memorial, Wind Cave National Park, the Mammoth Site and Hot Springs.

South Dakota's economy relies heavily on:

  • Agriculture
  • Manufacturing (food processing and electronics)
  • Mining (gold, construction sand, stone, gypsum, gravel, copper, and silver)
  • Tourism
  • Casinos

Anyone who is looking for a job would be well-advised to move to South Dakota. In October 2018, the state’s unemployment rate was 3.0% which is a full 7% below the national unemployment rate.

Buying land in South Dakota is a great choice for anyone with aspirations for becoming a business owner. The state is considered one of the most business-friendly environments in the United States. Experts feel that the reasons businesses thrive in South Dakota is because the state has a dedicated workforce who are both reliable and hardworking. The lack of taxes the state government charges also appeals to business owners, since they can take the money they would have paid in taxes and reinvest it in their business.
