South Dakota: What NOT to Do in South Dakota

Real Estate Tips:
Sometimes the best investment is your own venture. If you are not comfortable with the world of finance and big spenders, then invest in something like real estate that you can improve and resell. This is especially wise if you have skills that are needed to improve a property to increase it's resale value. Investing in real estate is one way to earn a return on your money as long as you choose your property wisely and purchase at a fair price. You can purchase a home and sell it when it increases in value. You can also purchase rental properties that provide you with an income, although you must deal with the headaches of being a landlord. Investing in real estate investment trusts (REITs) is another way to invest in real estate without having to actually own a physical property.

    1. Bikers make me vomit… but there are bike souvenirs at most of the truck stops across the state, so Rushmore isn’t the only thing

    2. Don’t STOP in the middle of the road to take pictures!
      Don’t be impatient with locals/staff!
      Don’t trespass! Learn to read maps!
      Don’t expect luxuries from the city! No 24hour stores or restaurants!
      Don’t take pics of locals like we are sideshow freaks!
      Don’t be jerks…tip your servers, bartenders and housekeepers!

    3. Wolter I moved to Sioux Falls a few months ago from Arizona and I love it.The people are really friendly here!

    4. Off to SD in three weeks for the 4th year in a row. Just my daughter and I. This is the only place she wants to go every year and I'm OK with that. Badlands for a day, and then off to the Hills for a week.
