Get aroundEdit


Be sure to check out the capitol building, an imposing and impressive structure in a beautiful setting. You'll get a great view of it from across the river in Ft. Pierre. Take a tour and see the interior as well, from the hand-laid mosaic tiles on the floor to the intricate paintings on the dome. The sculptures outside are also worth a look. The Fighting Stallions out front might not be your style, but the energy they represent is clear. The memorial statues of soldiers out near Capitol Lake are also impressive.
