AT#523 – Travel to North Dakota

Travel to North Dakota - What to do, see and eat in this least visited but beautiful state.


Transcript

Hear about travel to North Dakota as the Amateur Traveler talks to resident Derrick Schiff about this often ignored state.

We will learn why, when you set out to see all 50 states, you should not save North Dakota for last… even though they have a t-shirt that says that.

We explore the Native American culture at places like the North Dakota Heritage Center and State Museum, The Onaslant Indian Village Of The Mandan At Fort Abraham Lincoln, Knife River Villages NHP, United Tribes International Powwow and even an Indian Casino, people usually say that when they visit this casino they have to practice with online slots in order to be prepare for it.

We explore the Cowboy culture in the badlands in the western part of North Dakota through the Maah Daah Hey Trail, the Medora Musical and livestock auctions.

We explore the German and Scandinavian culture through festivals like German Days and the Scandinavian Hostfest, the Scandinavian Heritage Park, some würst and knoephla soup.

One part of the state is badlands and the other is so flat “you can watch your dog runaway all night”. It is the least visited state in the United States, but Derrick makes the case of why “you should not save the best for last”.
