I can find attractions for the family for Fargo and Theodore Roosevelt National Park - but hardly anything for any other places. I am interested in going to Bowman and New town as well as Fargo but what is there to do here? Thanks for any info.
Ummm... do you like watching corn grow? Try www.ndtourism.com to read up on what's there.
I'm sure you can fish too
Okay this may not be your cup of tea, but I thought it was really cool when I went. The world tallest structure is in North Dakota. Believe it or not, it is a TV tower half way between Fargo and Grand Forks near I-29. I found it on a AAA map. The tower is taller than any office building or observation tower. You can't go up it, just drive near it, take a picture and have some obscure knowledge. Of more tame note is Grand Forks in general which is a rather beautiful Mid-Western city including a modern University campus. You know there is probably a reason North Dakota is the least visit state in the Union, but I still like it more than half of the states in the Mid-West.
Not real sure if there is anything much to do in the Bowman area, although it is a rather rugged part of the state from a scenery standpoint. Also, nearby are some burning coal veins. As for New Town, it is right on the Missouri river (Lake Sakakawea to be precise!) - very scenic. They also have a large casino there which often has big name entertainment. Just Southeast of New Town from Beulah to Washburn there are several coal fired power plants and coal mines. Not sure if they still do, but they used to give tours. Quite impressive. If you go through Bismarck, you may want to spend some time there. There is a lot of history in the Bismarck - Mandan area. Lewis and Clark came through there and there is a restored Fort south of Mandan where Custer was stationed. The ND State Heritage Museum on the capitol grounds in Bismarck is well worth a visit as well. Bismarck is a very clean city with lots of shopping, restaraunts, and entertainment venues. By all means, check with the ND dept of tourism. They can and will provide a wealth of info!
