Why Sioux City


Sioux City, Iowa has a rich history of welcoming visitors since 1804 when the Lewis & Clark Expedition made its westward journey.  We are proud of our past and excited about the future. Sioux City serves as the regional hub for business, employment, industry, retail trade, medical care, educational opportunities and tourism in Northwest Iowa, Southeast South Dakota and Northeast Nebraska. More than 165,000 people call this tri-state metropolitan area home.
Sioux City is home to Saturday in the Park, one of the largest outdoor music festivals in the Upper Midwest, exciting sports action with USHL Hockey, Champions Indoor Football League and American Association Baseball. The new all seasons park, Cone Park, offers snow tubing and ice skating in the winter with trails and splashpad in the summer. And the LaunchPAD Children's Museum, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, award-winning Art Center and interactive Public Museum are just a few of the fun activities to enjoy, along with two eclectic historic districts in downtown. Cultural events like the Sioux City Symphony and Broadway series along with very diverse ethnic dining choices set Sioux City apart from other Midwest cities.

So look around and see why we love living here!
