100 Things to Do In Sioux City & Siouxland

the cover of 100 Things to Do in Sioux City and Siouxland Before You Die by Lindsay Hindman, a lime green book with white and navy letters, and a picture of a riverboat imposed on the number 100

I'm thrilled to announce that my first book, 100 Things to Do In Sioux City & Siouxland Before You Die published by Reedy Press, is officially released as of September 15th, 2020! 

Reedy's 100 Things series turns to local writers in dozens of cities around the nation to find out what locals view as the must-see places to eat, shop, and play in their area, and I'm so excited to have written the Siouxland edition. It will be most useful as a guidebook to visitors and new residents to our area, but I hope even long-time Siouxland residents will learn something new, and find a corner of Siouxland to explore where they've never been before.

Wow, a lot has changed since I first posted this! When I first started this post, the nearest outbreak of COVID-19 was one family in Omaha! Now, we have seen nearly everything in our tri-state area closed to try to flatten the curve, and the number of cases skyrocketed higher than many people thought possible, yet mercifully lower than many of the projection models. 
I did a major update on this post in June 2020 and a small update in July 2020, and it will now reflect what is re-opening in our area! I will try to keep it up to date, so check back for updates, but I do not run any of these organizations, and I encourage you to seek out their individual websites and social media to confirm closings that af…
