Simplified: The award-winning welcome guide is updated and here to keep serving Sioux Fallsians. Here's what you need to know.

Why it matters

  • The Simplified Welcome Guide was created in 2022 to be a one-stop shop for everything you'd need to know as a newcomer to Sioux Falls – from weird local colloquialisms to city history to a list of local resources.
  • In its first year, the Simplified Welcome Guide reached more than 5,000 people and won a national industry award for its innovative approach to sharing helpful, hyperlocal information.
  • The 2023 edition features an extensive list of local resources, an updated list of local politicians and shares a new slate of local businesses to support (especially because they're supporting the creation of this guide.)

Editor's note: I'd be remiss if I didn't mention this guide would not be possible without the support of our exclusive Welcome Guide Sponsor, Showplace Cabinetry. Whether you're looking for a new job or a home refresh, check them out and tell them they're cool for supporting locally owned local news.

Ok, take me to the guide already!

Say less. Here it is! (Oh and did I mention it's also available in Spanish?)
