Most of us can describe what Sioux Falls looks like from the ground. However, it's not every day that you have a chance to admire the Queen City on a clear day from 30,000 feet in the air.

It's kind of remarkable that you're looking at fields one minute, but then you see an entire city the next.

Recently, when I was on a flight back to Sioux Falls, I was in awe at how excited the other passengers got when they saw the city. Everyone was trying to guess the names of the streets, buildings, and parks from our place in the sky.

So I decided to challenge myself. I just started snapping pictures from above Sioux Falls to see what landmarks I could identify from the sky. Why don’t you see if you can name these Sioux Falls entities?

Sioux Falls certainly has a different view from 30,000 feet above the ground, and it's just as beautiful!


Here Are The 7 Remaining Drive-In Theaters In South Dakota

If you were born last know, in the nineteen hundreds (ugh) may have spent a summer evening in the car watching movies. I don't mean on your phone, I mean at the drive-in movie theater!

If you were in Sioux Falls in the 1970s and '80's you may remember seeing Jaws and Indiana Jones at The East Park or the Starlite Drive-In. Both drive-ins opened just after World War 2. The East Park didn't make it out of the '70s, closing in 1978. The Starlite survived long enough to see the birth of home video, closing in 1985.

Drive-in movies had a bit of a resurgence during the pandemic. They were a way to go out and do something social without getting out of your car.

If you tried one during that time, or you remember the fun of a warm summer evening watching movies on that giant screen there are still places in South Dakota and around Sioux Falls you can do it.
