8 Undeniable Differences Between The Eastern And Western Parts Of South Dakota

Anyone who’s been in South Dakota very long knows about the good-natured rivalry between East River and West River. It often seems as though we’re two states, divided by the Missouri River. Whether you think one side is better than the other or not, you can’t deny that there are distinct differences between the two.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
