    Yankton, SD - Native Americans followed the river’s flow to their destinations centuries ago. They named the land E-Hank-Ton-Wan, which means “people of the end village.” That is due to this was the point where riverboats on the Missouri ended their journey...

    It seems SD has a city for every letter of the alphabet. What a well-rounded state you live in. With interesting history.

    Indeed. Which brings me to Aberdeen, SD. In it's hey day, there were four RR tracks that met here. It was dubbed the "Hub City of SD" for that reason. Also it has a small amusement park that includes some of the Wizard of Oz, as Frank Baum once lived here (had a failed store & then ran the newspaper)...

    It would be nice to live in a place that actually lives up to that meaning...

    Garden-like setting- how nice it must be! And with just a cozy 33 people.

    Honolulu, Hawaii- originally settled in the 11th century by Polynesian migrants. It has the Bishop Museum, the world's largest collection of Hawaiiana and Pacific culture artifacts. Men's Fitness magazine named Honolulu the fittest city in the U.S.
