What Bert Has To Say About Sioux City Metro Area

Sioux City, an important agricultural processing and shipping center on the Missouri River, serves the “tri-state” area of northwest Iowa, northeast Nebraska, and South Dakota. This quiet but industrious city was once a major meatpacking and stockyards center. Food processing is still a major economic activity, and leftover historic interest has been preserved and brought forward with a few good museums and historic areas. There are other small but notable arts amenities for a town this size.
