As the most decorated vessel in World War II, the USS South Dakota Battleship was in all the major battles during its time at sea. Recognizing its importance in American history, the USS South Dakota Battleship Memorial in Sioux Falls highlights the significance of the ship through memorabilia and artifacts. The memorial is a minimalist outlined replica of the ship with foot high walls of concrete depicting the shape and width, with a small museum at the bridge. Components of the ship are placed accurately around the memorial with a propellor, the ship's bell, original 16-inch gun and flag staff. The memorial is over 680 feet long.

It's intriguing enough to cause a detour, and you'll be rewarded with many more such installations which comprise the Porter Sculpture Park. The work is a brainchild of metal sculptor Wayne Porter, and contains fantastical installations created mostly from scrap metal. Depicting insects, reptiles and other-worldly creatures, the artist's works have a spooky touch that's bound to stay with you for some time after you've left.
