Teri Schmidt, Executive Director of the  Sioux Falls Convention and Visitors Bureau,  is excited to report that the city is up 5.5 percent in room tax.  That means more people are visiting Sioux Falls and staying in our hotels.

At the Visitors Center at Falls Park, Teri says the attraction is up over 5 thousand visitors from the previous year.

And--- there is even more great news for Sioux Falls!  According to the state Department of Labor & Regulation, unemployment in the area dropped to 3.9 percent in August from 4 percent in July.
