Scenic South Dakota

Buy and entire town for less than a million dollars? Yep. That’s the allure of Scenic South Dakota. Almost the entire town is up for grabs for the eccentric investor.

There were quite a few other tourists there when I visited – most were bikers doing the popular Sturgis rally. I wandered among the weather buildings snapping photos and joking with the bikers about who was really here to sink some cash into the place. And it would require quite a lot of sinking. Many of the buildings were comically run down and patched. As I carefully trod across the rotting, creaking floor outside a bars I thought anyone actually buying the place had best have some pretty good liability insurance.
