Autumn is an outdoor-lover’s delight in North Dakota with brisk weather and changing colors beckoning people into the outdoors. Fill a thermos with coffee and join friends and family for pumpkin patches and hayrides. Don a wool sweater and lace up your hiking shoes for a day spent exploring the prairie countryside. Spend an afternoon at an art festival, then enjoy a delicious meal with friends at one of North Dakota’s wonderful eateries. Whatever you do, don’t let this festive season pass you by.
Autumn in North Dakota brings brilliant fall color, cooling temps and idyllic outdoor settings. Hunting season is in full swing, along with Halloween and an array of festivals across the state. Support local artists while getting your creative “fix” at an art or craft show. For more events, visit NDtourism.com or call 800-435-5663 or 701-328-2525
