You have probably seen marketing, sales and aquatics manager of Wild Water West Waterpark Emily McNamara around the state wearing her WWW swag. Get a glimpse into her world in and out of the popular Sioux Falls attraction, which is open Memorial Day through Labor Day.

Scooter’s Coffee [1] is a treat to myself on days when I need a pick-me-up.

WWW has awesome drink specials [2] that also work as a keepsake. Our mugs are $18 (first drink is included), or you can purchase a koozie for $15 (first drink is included). When you bring them back, you receive $1 off your next beverage.

I love sushi, and my favorite place is Sushi Masa [3]. When the owners know your order by heart, you know you go there too much.

Cake [4] and my grandma’s potato salad are two of my absolute weaknesses!

I used to own a sport bike and still love to ride motorcycles. The Sturgis Rally [5] is always a favorite trip for me to take.

Chevys Fresh Mex [6] is a yummy spot for chips and queso with fresh guacamole (their guacamole is my go-to).

Onions are my vice. I can eat a whole caramelized onion and have my own special recipe to make them.

I love to sing karaoke anywhere Pinnacle Productions is hosting.
