Interstate Welcome Centers
The South Dakota Interstate Welcome Centers are an important part of South Dakota Tourism. More than 500,000 people from all over the world visit the Welcome Centers each summer. Our centers are often the first stop visitors make as they enter the state, so we make sure to always greet them with a friendly South Dakota smile and provide all the travel information they need. From rock climbing to fine dining, we've got it all in South Dakota; and we’ve got information about it all at our Interstate Welcome Centers.
