Relocating to the Black Hills can be an exciting endeavor. Whether you are considering the Black Hills as your retirement location, moving for a career change or are simply looking for a fresh start, you can’t go wrong with living in Western South Dakota.

Named by the Lakota Sioux, the Black Hills were originally called “Paha Sapa” or hills that are black. When you drive into Western South Dakota from any direction, you can immediately understand how the Black Hills got their name. Home to several historical towns including Deadwood, Lead, and Sturgis, the largest city is Rapid City.

While Rapid City is often a popular destination for transplants, smaller suburbs like Piedmont, Rapid Valley, and Box Elder are now expanding and changing due to all of the new growth in the area over the last 10 years.

So what is there to do in the Black Hills? Well, pretty much everything. From skiing and rock climbing to boating and cycling, there is something for every type of sports enthusiast. Not interested in sports? There are also several locally owned restaurants, wineries, and breweries that offer a taste of local culture and flavor.
