From exploring our vibrant cities to enjoying celebrations and having fun with family, it’s the perfect time to make memories in North Dakota! Take the kids outside to play and instead of merry-go-rounds, there are scenic drives where they’ll see wildlife of all kinds. Instead of slides and swings, there are hiking trails, peaks and streams to conquer. Summer is a perfect time to make memories that will last a lifetime.
