Welcome to North Dakota- Land of Legends


Welcome to North Dakota.  

With this blog I will attempt to dispel the rumor that there is nothing to see or do in North Dakota.  This has been a “bum rap” because there is a lot more to North Dakota than a few months of cold weather, hypnotic waves of green and gold wheat fields, and ever populating oil wells. I hope to show you how to create some wonderful family memories with the hundreds of fun things to see and do! 

Let’s begin this vacation adventure in North Dakota with a question: What does your family like to do? No matter what the answer, there is definitely something your family will love in North Dakota.

Does your family like to golf? There are 124 courses and the cost for all weekend golfing is less than a single-round in other states. Does your family like history?  This land teems with dinosaur digs, old west forts, earthlodges, museums; not to mention the past residents and visitors like Theodore Roosevelt, Lewis and Clark, Sakakawea, Sitting Bull and Gen. Custer.

Looking for outdoor family adventures?  Look no further as North Dakota has mountain biking, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, fossil digs, fishing, hunting, horseback riding, waterparks, skiing and snowmobile trails.

Does live animal life appeal to your family? There are more wildlife refuges in North Dakota than any other state. Also within the state are four zoos, a National Buffalo Museum that supports a live herd, including three albino buffalo … and much, much more.

Today, more than ever, cost is a big factor in planning a vacation and there is good news on this front –  AAA has  recognized North Dakota as the most affordable state destination for family vacations.
