Get Healthy in the New Year

Most people vow to get active, eat better and stay healthy in new year.

What’s your New Year’s resolution? Travel more? Spend more time with family? Achieve a health or fitness goal?

Add North Dakota to your list! North Dakota is one of the U.S.'s healthiest states. It's one of the safest and friendliest states. And we have adventures awaiting in the new year!

Want to run that first marathon? The Fargo Marathon will celebrate its 10th year as one of the nation's fastest and flattest courses to run 26.2 miles. Are you hiking the highest point in every state? White Butte, near Amidon, is a 3,500-foot summit on private land allowing public access. Would you like to take your family horseback riding? We have that adventure and SO many more! Plus, local skating rinks, sledding hills, cross-country ski trails and recreation areas that can get your winter off on the right foot!

If you're vowing to eat better in the new year, your vacation to North Dakota can accommodate that resolution too, including: Stix and Twigs, Dickinson: Whole foods without artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. It strives to use foods grown without chemical herbicides, pesticides or GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms); and Amazing Grains, Grand Forks: Natural foods grocery store, deli and bakery located in the heart of downtown Grand Forks. Most restaurants now offer a healthy choice menu. So even if they aren’t catering specifically to a healthy option crowd, you can still find healthy choices.

Your trip to North Dakota can even be easier on the pocketbook. Check out our packages and deals page and start planning!
