Bismarck, N.D. – North Dakota has many tourism attractions and destinations open, despite closings due to the federal government shutdown. North Dakota Tourism Director Sara Otte Coleman assures residents and out-of-state travelers that there are many things to see and do, and many tourism attractions and destinations continue to welcome travelers.
Recently, my out-of-state college roommate called to say that she and her husband need a respite from their crazed, big-city schedules. She thought a trip to North Dakota, the "heartland," is exactly what they needed. Her request: Suggest a half dozen things to do in your state, this fall. Now.
For those hunting birds, fish, ghosts or the Great Pumpkin, you’ve come to the right place. North Dakota abounds with ghosts, ghouls, gourds and waterfowl in October. Do a little hunting early in the day, then take the family to one of the state’s many Halloween activities in the evening. And who knows, you may actually succeed where Linus fails every year in his quest to find the Great Pumpkin. Be sincere in your search and try these spine-tingling activities.
