We would like to take this opportunity to extend a warm welcome and greeting! Our location in the "Heart of the Midwest" is a great place to bring together colleagues for business or catch a relaxing night's sleep after traveling Interstate 90.

Our lakes are popular sites for recreational activities any season of the year. If you prefer a stroll down memory lane you will find many sites to visit, such as the Fairmont Opera House, Pioneer Museum, Sisseton Model RR display, Red Rock Center, or Heritage Acres. Our multitude of specialty shops offers a real shopper's paradise. We are proud of the beauty, history, and prosperity of our city and surrounding area - we hope your time in the area will give you a chance to appreciate them as well!
