Going out to restaurants is always an exciting occasion for a couple of reasons: You're not cooking and you have the opportunity to try something new.  Meals at restaurants go beyond the drinks and the main course. It can also be all about the appetizers!

Appetizers are the gateway to any restaurant's menu. In some cases, the appetizers can actually be better than the main course itself. There's just one question that puzzles restaurant patrons in South Dakota. Where can you find the best restaurant appetizers in South Dakota?

Best Things South Dakota did a little research and found the best appetizers in South Dakota. There are even a few Sioux Falls establishments mentioned on its list!

Fair warning: There is one restaurant on the Best Things South Dakota list that is closed. I added another popular establishment located in Sioux Falls that is known for its tasty appetizers and cold brews.

See Some of Sioux Falls' Beautiful Murals [PHOTOS]

I was in Canton, SD, and I happened upon a new mural.

It was really cool and that got me thinking that I know of a few murals in Sioux Falls, but I bet there's more than I realize. So, I put it out on social media for the people of Sioux Falls to tell me where all the murals are!

A few of them I had never seen, or never even been to that part of town, and a few of them, I drive by all the time and never noticed!

I know a few businesses have murals inside their establishments, but I decided to keep it to murals that are totally open for the public to see. No need to be 21!

So, here we go! Let's check out some of Sioux Falls' murals.
Did I miss one? Let me know!

Have You Ever Explored the 'War Eagle Monument' on the South Dakota/Iowa Border?

Originally being from the Sioux City area, I grew up knowing about the War Eagle Monument perched on a bluff along I-29. There was at least one field trip for every kid in the area to the monument.

However, speaking with folks from Sioux Falls, they didn't seem to know what I was talking about. All they know about I-29 in Sioux City was that it was usually under construction.

When crossing into Iowa from South Dakota on I-29, look up!

See Inside the Sioux Falls 'Castle on 22nd Street'

I don't know when I first saw the home, nor do I remember when I started lovingly referring to it as the "Castle on 22nd Street." I only know that I did and have referred to that Sioux Falls house as such for about 20 years now.
