Welcome to HotelGuide.Networks' directory of hotels and hotel reviews for Pierre, South Dakota!
South Dakota's Pierre boasts a past that includes Lewis and Clark encounters with the Teton Sioux. Now friendly downtown streets make Pierre a magnet for business, leisure, and modern exploration. Grounds of the South Dakota Capitol, all 115 acres, include a five-acre Capitol Lake with several nearby monuments and memorials. Promoters point out that memorable dining in the old days meant bringing along your own hog lard and salt pork, but that's all in the past, now that Pierre restaurants serve specialties from walleye to buffalo steaks, pizza to tacos, with some eateries prepared to cook whatever you catch or kill. Nearby lakes, ponds, and the Missouri River, boast extraordinary freshwater fishing for northern pike, bass, salmon, trout and catfish. The region, anchored by the Mighty Mo, features rugged grassy bluffs bridging the west's rolling ranch country and the east's tabletop flatness. To the east, fields yield wheat, corn, and soybeans. To the west, cattle ranches operate where buffalo once roamed.
The Missouri and its tributaries dominate, and four rolled-earth dams control flooding and provide water recreation, irrigation, and wildlife habitat making boating, swimming, and birding popular. The Oahe Dam backs up the river for more than 200 miles into North Dakota. Geese and mallards use the river as a flyway between Canada and the Gulf of Mexico. Deer and antelope are plentiful along the river, as are coyote, fox and mink. The rare black-footed ferret and bald and golden eagles are spotted on occasion. Near Pickstown, ruins of the Fort Randall Chapel provide a glimpse into the area's past. Memorials to Sitting Bull and Sacagawea are found near Mobridge. American Indian tribes maintain buffalo herds and hold powwows and expositions to preserve rich culture and traditions. Fort Pierre, born as a trading post for fur, tobacco, salt, and beads, quickly moved on with a drug store, grocery, lumber yard and several saloons. Shopping for gifts today can include home-grown specialties from berry jam to handcrafted native goods. Accommodations range from family owned inns and motels to hotels with affiliations known worldwide.
