Dakota was admitted to the Union on November 2nd
of 1889. The state is probably most well known
for being the home of Mount Rushmore in the
Black Hills, which is featured in the above
graphic. Mount Rushmore is a representation of
the first 150 years of the nations history, as a
sculpture of four of our nations presidents
(Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt, and Lincoln).
South Dakota's area is mostly rural, and with an
agricultural economic background. The state is
the 17th largest in the country.
The Missouri river splits the state into two
halves, with each side of the river being
significantly different for the residents of the
state. The west side of the river is where you
will find the rancher-lifestyle, and on the east
side you will discover the farmland. Either way,
you can enjoy the subtle and relaxing atmosphere
of this state, and the
flying experience only
available in this state.
