The original territorial capitol of the Dakotas, Yankton remains rich with history and culture. Locals may tell you where Jack McCall was buried after he was hanged in Yankton for the murder of Wild Bill Hickok. They’ll surely share their favorite fishing holes, or point you to a restaurant with the best walleye. Yanktonians are proud of their town, located on the wild Missouri and close to picturesque Lewis and Clark Lake. The lake area offers miles of bike trails, hiking trails with lake views, sailing, boating, skiing and fishing. Head downtown for coffee or a sandwich, and then walk the picturesque Meridian Bridge, the longest pedestrian bridge in the U.S. which connects two states.
