Sioux Falls Weekend Getaway.

A few weeks back I flew back to my old place of residence, Sioux Falls, SD over my birthday weekend for a college friend’s wedding. I thought it would be fun to share a (overdue) recap of this short trip and also add in a few additional favorite spots I didn’t get time to make it to!

And yes, I flew during this crazy Covid time knowing I would keep myself quarantined for the recommended timeframe after I made it back to Colorado. I would say that flying isn’t so bad if you take the proper precautions and are ready to follow quarantine timelines after your travels. I’m also hear for any questions you may have for your upcoming travels!

I flew out bright and early from the Denver airport on my birthday to arrive into Sioux Falls around noon. My mom and sister picked me up from the airport and we headed straight to a new local hotspot Daily Clean Eats and Drinks. My mom and I ordered the Tongue Thai’d Bowl and my sister got the Ambrosia Bowl – both were super delicious, filling, and healthy! 

We then checked into our hotel, the Holiday Inn Sioux Falls City Centre, and walked downtown for cocktails and wine at our old favorite, The Carpenter Bar. For dinner, we just hung at a family member’s house for some pizza and cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes (the Lemon Raspberry flavor is my favorite!). 

The next day was a bit of prep for the wedding with spray tans and getting our nails done. Then relaxing at the local water park, Wild Water West under a personal cabana sipping Cheladas, a stop at B&G Milkway for ice cream (I like the classics – Oreo Avalanches or Turtle Sundaes), dinner at Mackenzie Rivers with friends (I’m a big fan of the Southwest Chop salad) and more ice cream at Parlour Ice Cream House

The following day was spent traveling around eastern South Dakota to visit family members, rehearsal dinner, and a graduation party for our cousin. Then the wedding on Saturday with the reception at Icon Lounge + Events and lunch at Granite City on Sunday with friends before flying home (I’m a fan of the Mediterranean Chicken).

It was great, quick getaway filled with friend reunions, cocktails, and plenty of sweets. A few of my favorite spots we didn’t get to while back: 

If you find yourself in the Sioux Falls area or looking for a unique short getaway, there is definitely plenty of great places to eat, small local boutiques to shop, and a few nice sight-seeing stops in the area (when the weather is nice!). 

Four Sigmatic Review + Sale!

I’ve talked about this brand a few times but I am a huge fan of Four Sigmatic! A company that started in Finland, which focuses on providing plants and mushrooms through drink form. So you don’t have to go to the forest to consume exotic mushrooms for the health benefits! 

I learned of this brand like I learn about many, through a referral from a friend which is why I wanted to share about them and my favorite items in a post. It’s also perfect timing because they are having one of their (very few) huge sales right now with up to 50% off on some items. 

Here is an explanation of Four Sigmatic in their words: 

“Four Sigmatic foods are the 100 most nutrient dense, most studied foods on the planet. And now they’re easy to add to your daily routines. We’re making these foods as easy as possible to eat and use and talk about. Because the world is asking more of you. Of everyone. We’d all feel a lot better doing that work if we got off the hamster wheel of coffee jitters and hangovers and sugar highs.”

My favorite items:

  • Cacao Mix with Reishi: By far my all-time fav four sig products. Reishi mushroom is meant to relax so it is a perfect before-bed sipper. 
  • Chai Latte Mix w/ Turkey Tail & Reishi: Another great drink for bedtime is the chai latte with reishi and turkey tail, which is a stress-reliever mushroom. If you’re a chai latte fan, it is definitely not as sweet as you’re used to. I like to mix this one with almond or coconut milk. 
  • Mushroom Elixir Mix with Lion’s Mane: Lion’s Mane mushroom will help with focus on the days where your brain just wants to be all over the place. I love this option for a mid-morning pick-me-up before lunchtime hits. 
  • Mushroom Elixir Mix with Chaga: Who doesn’t love a good extra defense for your immune system? The Chaga mushroom helps with overall wellness which makes it a great option for when those sneaky colds start to come up. 
  • Mushroom Elixir Mix with Cordyceps: This mushroom gives a nice little boost for performance without the jitter effects of coffee. Perfect for the afternoon slump at 3PM!

Others I’m ordering: 

If you haven’t tried Four Sigmatic before or are a passionate customer like myself, you definitely need to take advantage of the Summer Sale going on this week only!

P.S. You’ll also receive $15 off through my referral link 😉
