North Dakota


Home to Theodore Roosevelt National Park, North Dakota offers picturesque landscapes, vibrant cities, and local history.

Take in the rugged Badlands and abundant wildlife of Theodore Roosevelt National Park. Keep your eye open for wild horses, bison, deer, elk and coyotes as you explore the park grounds. It was in this area that the 26th US President spent his time as a rancher which helped shape the country’s conservation policy leading to the establishment of the eventual National Park Service. In the small gateway town of Medora, take in the Medora Musical and feast on a traditional western pitchfork fondue.

Experience Native American heritage at the home of the annual United Tribes International PowWow in Bismarck – be ready for traditional drumming, dancing and singing! Discover North Dakota’s early history at nearby Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park or visit Bismark’s historic Cathedral district.

The State’s largest city, Fargo, has a modern yet traditional feel and its bustling downtown is filled with unique shops and restaurants. Fargo embraces untraditional thinking and the many artists and musicians who live here are inspired by the city’s spirit every day.

North Dakota is the perfect destination for outdoor recreation. Mountain bikers, hikers and horse riders will be in their element on the 140-mile Maah Daah Hey Trail that runs through the Badlands of North Dakota. Other popular activities include kayaking, canoeing and year-round fishing.
