Yankton: A Riverside Gem

Thanks to its prime position along the Missouri River, Yankton is a place where everyone goes with the flow. Take in the views from the Meridian Highway Bridge, enjoy the best of the great outdoors at the Lewis & Clark Recreation Area, and grab a slice of South Dakota’s most delicious pizza (according to the Food Network) at Charlie’s Pizza House.
