Welcome to the official website of the city of Flandreau, South Dakota!
Flandreau, one of the oldest cities in the state, is a small but progressive community, located about 40 minutes north of Sioux Falls, seven miles east of Interstate 29.
During the "Dust Bowl" era, Flandreau was commonly referred to as the "Garden Spot of the Dakotas." Located on the banks of the Big Sioux River, the city continues to flourish.
Our close proximity to Sioux Falls, one of fastest growing urban areas in the United States, allows the luxury of small town living with convenient access to products and services of a larger city.
While the weather of the northern plains is the stuff of legend, living in southeastern South Dakota offers many advantages - four distinct seasons, allowing a wide variety of recreational opportunities; low crime rates, and one of the lowest tax rates in the nation.
The opportunities for education are abundant. Brookings, SD, home of South Dakota State University and Madison, SD, home of Dakota State University, are within a quick 30-minute commute. Other educational opportunities are available in the Sioux Falls area.
Enjoy the pleasure of small town living - but with easy access to the economic, recreational, cultural and social advantages offered by one of the largest cities in the northern Great Plains.
It all adds up to a great quality of life!
