Here's a look at some of the standouts from his top ten:

7) Low Cost of Living: As the narrator mentions, South Dakota is an extremely affordable place to live. In fact, according to the video, it's the fifth cheapest state to live in, as of 2019.

6) Nature: As the video explains, South Dakota has some of the most breathtaking nature you'll find anywhere in the country. From the Badlands and the Black Hills to the Missouri River. There's something here for everyone.

3)Lower Taxes: Another perk from living in South Dakota? It's one of only 9 states that doesn't have an income tax.

1)Rich History: The history of South Dakota began with Native American tribes such as the Lakota, Cheyenne. France and Spain also laid claim to our state for a period of time. And arguably the most historic moment in our state's history was the Lewis and Clark expedition.

I would have to agree with his number one option. It's not something that always comes to mind when you think of it, but the state has one of the richest histories of almost any state. What do you think? What's your number one reason for moving to South Dakota?
