Colton Reviews

1 review
I've lived in Colton my entire life. Though it's a little town, the environment is amazing. There are a handful of daycare providers in and around town, as well as a gas station, park, and pool. Everybody in Colton is friendly and always ready to help with anything and everything. Colton is about twenty five miles northwest of South Dakota's largest city, Sioux Falls. The commute is not bad as Interstate 29 is only ten miles away from Colton. Tri-Valley is a public school just five miles away from Colton, and the environment there is just as great as town.
