It’s hard to imagine a playground as large as North Dakota, until you take the kids outside to play. 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. And rather than kids coloring at the table, take them to Yunker Farm in Fargo for some hands-on experiences. Summer is a perfect time for a different kind of learning, and for memories that will last a lifetime.
Bismarck, N.D. – North Dakota Tourism is offering a grant to one or more new tourism attractions that can bring more visitors to North Dakota. This program is made possible by a one-time appropriation of $750,000 in funds during the 2013 North Dakota legislative session.
The new NDtourism.com also has a new blog! And I tell ya, there's been a lot of pressure (self-inflicted) to write the perfect first post for our new format. My notebook is filled with a lot of topic ideas:
Bismarck, N.D. - North Dakota’s tourism entities have until August 30 to apply for marketing and event match grants from the North Dakota Department of Commerce, Tourism Division.
North Dakota Tourism Director Sara Otte Coleman says these grants are important to not only the tourism industry partners who receive the funds, but to the state's tourism industry as a whole, "These funds allow tourism entities to promote an event or develop marketing materials.”
