SD Posted in South Dakota May 24, 2016 by Katie 10 Things South Dakotans Do Better Than Anyone Else Working hard and being nice aren’t the only things South Dakotans do better than anyone. This is the perfect reminder of why we should take pride in our lovely state. We have so much to offer! 1. Black Hills Gold m01229 / Flickr Ever since 1874, South Dakota has been mining gold and creating gold jewelry. Today, you can still visit many mining attractions and try your hand at sifting for gold! 2. Monuments Matthew Paulson / Flickr From Mount Rushmore to Crazy Horse to the Geographical Center of the US, we have the most unique monuments of any state. People travel to South Dakota from around the world to see our National Monuments. 3. Dodging deer Mike Hoff / Flickr Because there are so many deer in South Dakota, you have to be professional at dodging them to be able to live here. 4. And potholes _chrisUK / Flickr Winter cold brings Spring potholes. I know that's not the saying but it might as well be. We are the best at protecting our cars and ourselves by avoiding treacherous potholes. 5. Embracing winter weather The.Rohit / Flickr We don't really get an option on this one so we choose to embrace it. The winter weather doesn't hold us back from much, as we are always willing to brave the storm. 6. Rodeos blucolt / Flickr Not only are we the best at rodeos, it's also our state sport! 7. Caves Julie Falk / Flickr From Wind Cave National Park to Jewel Cave National Monument, we have some of the most unique and stunning caves around. You can and should tour them all! 8. Motorcycle rallies Jeff Siarto / Flickr For obvious reasons, South Dakota is undoubtedly the best at hosting motorcycle rallies. Lasting a full week, Sturgis is one of the world's largest motorcycle rallies. Bikers travel from around the world to be apart of this epic rally. 9. Buildings made of corn cariliv / Flickr South Dakota is home to the world's only corn palace. Every year, the corn is fully replaced and artists create the murals that decorate the building, making it a true community effort. 10. Fossil finding Jared Cherup / Flickr Found in South Dakota, Sue the t-rex is the most extensive Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton ever found. She is also the best preserved. At 40 feet long and 13 feet tall, its clear that South Dakota dominates at fossil finding. What other things do you think South Dakotans do better than anyone else?
