Sioux Falls is a top 10 best place to live

  • October 8, 2020

Sioux Falls has been named one of the 2020 Top 100 Best Places to Live by, outpacing more than 1,000 cities with populations between 20,000 and 1,000,000 in this data-driven ranking.

This year’s rankings were informed by each city’s “Opportunity Score,” which consists of several variables centered around the economy, job opportunities and growth. When combined, these points offer a snapshot of the opportunity landscape of each city, and the potential for businesses and residents to thrive and grow.

“There are many opportunities not only for careers, but for connection. Sioux Falls is growing rapidly, and it’s amazing to see the impact of community groups. I’ve seen things started by a handful of individuals grow into movements that expand across the entire city — from arts programming to running clubs to environmental initiatives! Whether you’d like to lead the charge on a passion project, or join a group of like-minded individuals, Sioux Falls is a great place to find community.”

The city’s affordability, low crime rate, top-notch healthcare systems, great schools and four-seasons climate make it the perfect place to build a life.
