Beulah is smack dab in the middle of an area of North Dakota known as the “powerbelt” region. To get a feel for the history of the area, visit the Mercer County Museum to learn of the early settlement days by Norwegian, Swedish, Irish and Germans from Russia. Then take a walk on the wild side at the Pfennig Wildlife Museum, which features 175 mounted animals from around the world.
From Beulah, visitors can get a good look at why they call this area the powerbelt, with many power plants and mines visible in all directions. Tours are available to those who want to see what it takes to keep the lights on.
Several unique dining options are available at Fanatic’s Sports Bar and Grill, Country Kettle, Jimmy’s Pizza and Southside Diner to name a few.
Recreational opportunities are everywhere. Nearby Lake Sakakawea is a summer playground with lodging, boat docks and lake access at Beulah Bay. What's in a name? Black Sands Golf Course features unique black sand bunkers on a nine-hole layout.
