My North Dakota To Do List

  • Category: Best of
  • Traveler type: Culture, Sightseeing, Active/Outdoors, Sports buffs
  • Appeals to: Families with small children, Large groups, Budget travellers , Active/adventure, Tourists
  • Seasons: Spring, Summer, Fall
  • 1. Theodore Roosevelt National Park & Badlands

    See the beautiful badlands. Make sure you stop and see the Painted Canyon...very pretty at sunset. Especially pretty in early summer when the grass is the greenest and the Canyon is colorful with its reds, blues and yellows. If you have time, take the very pretty drive north through the Park.

  • 2. International Peace Garden

    Even if you're not a flower lover, you will love the beauty of this Garden and its various Memorials. Located on the US-Canadian border.

  • 3. Medora

    Historic Medora and its Musical. Unique old time experience. Take time to tour the shops. Watch during the Musical and see if any of the animals are grazing on the hill.

  • 4. North Dakota Heritage Center

    Explore North Dakota's past. Located on the Bismarck Capitol grounds.

  • 5. Bismarck Capitol

    Lovingly referred to as the "Skyscraper on the Prairie". Unique capitol design. Inside are prints of the North Dakota Hall of Fame members and statues located on the grounds. Great views of the City/area from the top floor.

  • 6. Lewis & Clark Riverboat

    Relax and take a cruise on the Riverboat on the Missouri River. Beautiful and relaxing and you'll see the power and size of the Missouri.

  • 7. UND Hockey

    If you can get tickets and you love hockey, you need to go. If you don't love hockey, you'll still have a great time and need to go once. State of the art arena and UND is always in the running for a national championship.

  • 8. Roger Maris Museum

    If you're a baseball fan, you've got to check out the Museum located in West Acres Shopping Mall. Maris is a favorite son and many feel still holds the Home Run Record. Go into Scheel's Sporting Store and see if they're still selling "The Record's Still 61" t-shirts.

  • 9. Lake Sakakawea and Garrison Dam

    See the third largest man-made lake and fifth largest dam in the US. If you love to fish, boat or sail, you'll enjoy a relaxing day on the Lake.

  • 10. Dickinson Dinosaur Museum

    If you've got kids, you've got to check it out.

  • 11. Geographical Center of North America-Rugby, ND

    Stop by on your way to the Peace Gardens and you can always say you stood at the center of North America!

  • 12. Powwow

    Experience the Native American culture, food and dance. The biggest is the United Tribes Powwow held in September in Bismarck, ND.

  • 13. Enchanted Highway

    If you love folk art, you'll love this highway full of figures of immense size.

  • 14. Lewis & Clark Trail and Indian Villages/Historical Sites

    Hike, bike, drive. Whichever you prefer. Plenty of options available.

  • 15. Fort Ransom State Park

    Beautiful in early summer when the grass is greenest. Rolling hills and trees. Very scenic drive.

  • 16. Over Sized Animals-New Salem Sue

    If you like this sort of thing...Visit Sue, the world's largest Holstein Cow. The kids will love a picture.

  • 17. Over Sized Animals-Steele Crane

    Visit Sandy the largest Sandhill Crane located in Steele, ND. Again...kids will love.

  • 18. Over Sized Animals-Jamestown Buffalo

    What can I say...North Dakotans apparently love their over sized animals. World's largest buffalo. Also, has the National Buffalo Museum, Frontier Village and Whitecloud, an extremely rare albino buffalo (she's alive and not made of cement like her oversized counterpart).
