So you need an escape from the big city? The hustle and bustle of life can get the best of us sometimes and we all are in need of a getaway. If you are looking for something a little more long-term, these small towns in South Dakota are the perfect way to get away from it all.
1. Wilmot, SD
With a population of around 500, Wilmot is a great getaway. There's not much to do out here in the northeastern part of SD except work hard and make your own fun.
2. Houghton, SD
Houghton is so far in the middle of nowhere that it is almost in North Dakota. In 2014, the town counted only 155 people living there. If you want to get away from the traffic of the big cities, come on over to Houghton where everyone you meet is family.
