South Dakota Is Number One At All Of These Things
South Dakota is the best state in America. Agree? Agree! While others may disagree (see: people from any and every other state), we have solid proof to back up this claim, including these 10 things that South Dakota is number one at:
1. Obviously, we dominate at turning walls of rock into works of art.
I mean, not every place has a Mount Rushmore or Crazy Horse, people!
Chislic. German pastries and desserts. Hot beef sandwiches. Indian tacos. Is your mouth watering yet?!
3. Paying homage to our heritage.
Whether we pay tribute to our Native American or German ancestry, you know that we are going to go all out for it.
4. We are number one at NOT being NoDak.
Yes, there is a difference, so never, EVER compare the two again. Okay? Thanks.
5. Untouched landscapes...
7. ...and sunsets.
Obviously, all of these things are out of our control, so it is pretty cool that our scenery and skies are still the most pristine!
8. Getting by without a pro sports team.
Seriously; who needs to waste an entire Sunday in front of the TV when there are so many new places to see, shop, and eat around the state?
9. Tourist attractions.
Did you know that the tourism industry accounts for $2B+ of our annual revenue? People literally flock to see Mount Rushmore, Wall Drug, and Mitchell Corn Palace.
You know the saying "Midwest nice"? We are pretty sure it was coined after us South Dakotans.
