Featured Destination: North Dakota

Wander Around the Peace Garden State

When you want to plan a getaway that’s far from the ordinary—head to North Dakota. Hotels, like the residents, are clustered near the few large cities and top attractions, while the rest of the state is an outdoorsman’s paradise. “Here, the romance of my life began,” Theodore Roosevelt said about his time in North Dakota, describing the region as “a world of beauty and color and limitless space.” This is where you can go “off the grid” for a few days and simply enjoy the simple life on America’s Great Plains.

Things to do in North Dakota

Roosevelt’s Wonderland

The best place to fall in love with Mother Nature is at the Theodore Roosevelt National Park—where bison graze along the roadways and prairie dogs pop up to pose for photos. Enjoy 70,000 acres of badlands canyon, cliffs and prairie grass on hiking trails along the Little Missouri River. This unique park is separated into two “units” 50 miles apart with Roosevelt’s Elkhorn Ranch in the middle.

Worldly Minot

Book a stay in Minot for a completely foreign experience. The lives and lifestyles of some of the earliest European settlers persist here in their Scandinavian crafts, Icelandic turf-roof houses and a traditional stave church. The state fair is based here, too, but the biggest and best of all the state festivities may be the Norsk Hostfest held at the fairgrounds each fall. It’s the largest of its kind in North America.

Far Out Fargo

Famous Fargo, on the eastern edge of the state, shares its Minnesota border with Moorhead. Here in the largest city in North Dakota, hotels are situated near top attractions like museums and other cultural sites. In West Fargo, make time for a visit to Bonanzaville Pioneer Village, a living history site replicating pioneer life on the prairie.
