New in Sioux City Posted On: 10/27/2009 10:04:45 AM
We've lived in the Siouxland area for just about a year. We came here in November cold, (no pun intended) and discovered that the housing market was stable as was the cost of living. Moving from a more metropolitan area Sioux City was a bit of an ajustment, but people are nice and straightforward. The medical industry is pretty good and Sioux City is only a four hour drive from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN.
The Summers are nice and filled with lots of summertime activities, such as boating on the Missouri River and surrounding lakes, (only two hours from Lake Okoboji Resort area), as well as softball, soccer, walking and hiking trails. Sioux City is also home to semi-professional baseball, hockey and arena football and lots and lots of small but decent golf courses.
Winters can be harsh, but no one moves to the upper midwest with knowing this and dressing and driving appropriately. Besides, the winter makes the summer that much more special. Oh, and there's sweet corn. The best in the world.
