This Tiny Town In South Dakota Has A Little Bit Of Everything
When most of America thinks of tiny towns, they think of desolate, nearly abandoned communities that have very little left to offer. When it comes to small South Dakota towns, however, each of them still packs a punch in terms of things to do and places to see, like this one that has a little bit of everything:
Tucked away in north central SoDak is the town of Selby, which is home to 700 residents and a ton of big surprises.
Established in order to serve the newly planted Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad, Selby has always been small but mighty, and was not only a prosperous place to live for railroaders, but farmers, too.
While a lot has changed since Selby was officially incorporated in 1909, the town continues to be a great place to live or visit, and offers such surprises as delicious home-cooking...
The good food doesn't stop at the iconic DakotaMaid, as Selby is even home to Mr. Bob's Drive-In, Time Out Lodge, and more.
Do you brake for antique stores? You are going to want to slam them on for T's!
...a surprising amount of festivals and events...
Craft fairs, ladies nights, and rodeos? The gang is all here in Selby!
...and arguably the best outdoor recreation in the state.
Whether you enjoy fishing, hunting, hiking, or biking, you will find only the best in Selby.
