Aberdeen, SD

Write Your Story!

Our story began being named after Aberdeen, Scotland, the hometown of the Milwaukee Railroad President, Alexander Mitchell. This new city became known as the Hub City of the Dakotas. This Hub City welcomed the Pheasant Canteen during WWII. Thousands of soldiers passed through Aberdeen, SD, on their way to war to eat Aberdeen’s famous game bird – the pheasant. The city grew rapidly; today Aberdeen has diversified into a strong agriculture, manufacturing, and service hub. Aberdeen has thrived on its progressiveness, hospitality, and opportunity. Families enjoy its hometown allure, and businesses thrive on its Midwestern work ethic.

There are so many great places to visit in Aberdeen. Storybook Land and the Land of Oz offer a free day of entertainment for families. Wylie Park has activities for all age groups, or you can visit the Aquatic Center to cool off during the summer heat. Spend a day in downtown Aberdeen shopping or visiting the Dacotah Prairie Museum or Capital Theatre.

Aberdeen has wonderful annual events, free attractions, and affordable family fun. We have two state parks within miles of the city, over 1,001 hotel rooms, local campgrounds and hunting lodges to stay during your trip. Storybook Land and the Land of Oz is a unique experience that offers hours of entertainment. Wylie park is over 210 acres with multiple activities for kids and adults to partake in. Our Aquatic center has a leisure pool, three different slides, a lazy river, and an eight lane lap pool. We have multiple art and cultural centers, and we are a hub for thousands of shoppers in Northeastern South Dakota.
