When you visit Yankton, South Dakota, you’ll immediately find a few things apparent: this is a city with a rich historical background (don’t miss the architecture on buildings downtown); outdoor recreation found here rivals any of the other major resort areas; and the people here are content and friendly, happy to have you as their guest.
Whether you’re visiting for a day, weekend or longer, you and your family will be able to be entertained with a variety of activities. Shop along the streets in historic downtown; take the kids go-karting; follow the many miles of bike trails.
The Lewis & Clark Lake and Recreation area, just minutes from the west of the edge of town, welcomes over 1 million people each year. Enjoy a lazy day on a sandy beach, an energizing afternoon on a boat, or family time camping – and make sure you take the time to soak in the scenery; look south often to gaze at the majestic, rustic bluffs along the lake. Their differing colors tell the time of the day.
