During a long day of driving, we took a mandatory waterfall break at Falls Park, located on the north end of Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

The site features a series of falls where the Big Sioux River cascades over pink quartzite cliffs. There are the remains of the Queen Bee Mill, which was built in the 1880s and shuttered after a few short years in operation, and a former hydroelectric plant that had a longer run, cranking out power from 1908 until 1974. The power plant now houses a cafe. An observation tower and gift shop complete the scene.
