Pierre Area Convention & Visitors Bureau
When South Dakota achieved statehood in 1889, Pierre, situated at nearly the geographic center of the state became its capital. We are a small, Midwestern city of about 14,000 that is the seat of Hughes County as well as the state capital. Ours is a friendly community whose tree-lined streets, historic downtown and lush green parks give way to rolling hills and steep Missouri River bluffs. With numerous parks and endless outdoor recreation opportunities, Pierre is your adventure on the river.
