Aberdeen, South Dakota: A College Town Vibe with Lots to Do 4 rating By Anonymous ( May 14, 2018) Coming from the south, my first winter in Aberdeen was an adjustment. The very cold subzero temperatures were a shock to my system, but since then I have acclimated and don’t find the winters as difficult. Summer is another thing altogether, and I truly love the lower humidity ...Read More and average temperatures in the 70s during the summer months.

For a city of less than 30,000 population, I find there is lots to do with good restaurants and many local activities. The many parks around town are perfect for a jog or leisurely stroll, and there is plenty of space for family outings. Storybook Land has become a favorite for the children.

Surprisingly, the shopping is also good, with all of the usual big box stores and a lot of smaller boutiques — my wife likes to browse at The Farmer’s Wife Boutique. Aberdeen is also a college town with Northern State University and Presentation College located in the City, giving it a younger vibe that we enjoy. Read Less
