Natural beauty, wide-open spaces, and relatively inexpensive living costs make South Dakota an ideal retirement destination.
Officially nicknamed “The Mount Rushmore State” for its top tourist attraction, South Dakota stands out geographically from other states in the Great Plains. It has its share of wide-open grasslands, particularly in the central and eastern areas of the state around Pierre and Sioux Falls. But the farther west you go, unique land formations like buttes begin popping up from the prairie, and South Dakota starts to look more like the American West. Badlands National Park resembles a miniature desert mountain range with peaks you can traverse in just a few minutes. In the southwestern corner of the state are the more wooded Black Hills – a small, isolated mountain range home to the gigantic granite monuments Mount Rushmore and the work-in-progress Crazy Horse Memorial.
Currently, A Place for Mom partners with 10 senior living communities in South Dakota that provide assisted living.
The median monthly cost of assisted living in South Dakota is about $3,700.
