Neighborhoods

The North Side

The North side is the original residential area of Sioux City. It is broken into several neighborhoods. The southern portion of the North side is characterized by large estate homes in the Craftsman, Colonial and Victorian styles. The northern section contains the Indian Hills area homes built between the 1960’s and 1980’s, the Country Club area, which includes sprawling ranch homes from the 1940’s to 1980’s, and Leeds which has a variety of homes ranging in age and style.

Morningside and East Side

Morningside was originally a streetcar suburb in the late 19th century. Today it is a large sprawling area of Sioux City containing numerous distinctive neighborhoods. As a whole, Morningside is a mix of older residential neighborhoods and commercial corridors. Peters Park is the historical commercial center of Morningside, while the Southern Hills area includes the Southern Hills Mall, Lakeport Commons and Singing Hills area.

West Side

The West Side is a mix of low-income and middle-class residential neighborhoods. On this side of town, there is Riverside, a flat, bluecollar residential area on the west side of Sioux City, along the banks and floodplain of the Big Sioux River. Smith-Villa and Prospect Hill, located on the lower west side of Sioux City is one of the city’s oldest residential neighborhoods.

Commercial Districts

Also located downtown is the Orpheum Theater, built in 1927. The Orpheum was renovated in 2001 and has since hosted Broadway shows, international musical performers, and on special occasions, the Sioux City Symphony Orchestra. The Tyson Events Center is located near the riverfront, and is a 10,000-seat venue for conventions, entertainment, and sports events; it is the home of the Sioux City Musketeers, a team affiliated with the United States Hockey League – an amateur hockey league. Historic Fourth Street (also called “Lower Fourth Street”) is a district on the east side of the main downtown area that is enjoying a renaissance. This area includes many local eateries, as well as a movie theater, the Sioux City Convention Center, and condominiums above some of the businesses.

Wynstone, SD

The concept of Wynstone was developed in 1995. Gateway was growing rapidly at the time. The investors saw a need for an alternative to The Dunes. They envisioned a place with larger lots and much more open space but with the security of a gated community.

This area is highlighted by contemporary ranch, two-story and multilevel homes.
