Forbes says Sioux Falls is the best

Hot off the presses in the past few months are two new rankings by Forbes magazine.  Forbes rankings solidify accolades from a wide range of other publications listing Sioux Falls and South Dakota among the best places for business. 



In November, Sioux Falls claimed the top spot in Forbes “Best small city in America for business and careers” ranking.   Weeks later, South Dakota was named by Forbes as the best state in U.S. for business.
