South Dakota is situated in the mid-west of the United States. Its capital city is Pierre but the largest city is actually Sioux Falls. With two main airports in the region - Sioux Falls Regional Airport and Rapid City Regional Airport - visitors have a choice of which part of the state they wish to land. Once you have arrived, moving around the state is done via more than 83,000 miles of road. Hiring a car in South Dakota means you can go sightseeing at your own pace. Known as the Mount Rushmore State, you cannot visit the region without taking in this sculpture of elite US presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosesvelt, and Abraham Lincoln.
Rent a car in South Dakota and travel back in time with a visit to The Mammoth Site of Hot Springs. It is the world's largest mammoth research facility, and you can find out about the Ice Age where mammoths and giant bears walked the plains. Discover the many Ice Age fossils on show in the museum. Sport is very popular in the area so visit Sioux Falls Arena where you can experience the thrill of an indoor football, basketball, or hockey game. Yankton Trail Park offers fun activities and great walks all year round; it's also the site of the Sioux Falls Jazz and Blues Festival every July.
It's important to remember that in states like South Dakota, you will need to pay for fuel at the station before you refuel. Pay special attention to the car in front of you as in the United States cars do not have an orange indicator light; they instead have a flashing red light which tends to blend in with the car's brake lights. Speed limits also vary in different areas but the general rule is that the limit is 70mph on motorways, 65mph outside built up areas, and 30mph in built up areas.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
