Get Healthy in the New Year

Most people vow to get active, eat better and stay healthy in new year.

What’s your New Year’s resolution? Travel more? Spend more time with family? Achieve a health or fitness goal?

Add North Dakota to your list! North Dakota is one of the healthiest states in the U.S. and has a vast array of healthy adventures awaiting in the new year.

Want to run that first marathon? The Fargo Marathon will celebrate its 14th year as one of the nation’s fastest and flattest courses on which to run 26.2 miles. Are you into day hikes, multi-day hikes and simply overnight hikes? Trails like the Maah Daah Hey Trail and Nux Baa Gaa Trail can cure your wanderlust wherever it takes you.

Would you like to take your family horseback riding? We have that adventure and so much more! Plus, local skating rinks, sledding hills, cross-country ski trails and recreation areas that can get your winter off on the right foot.

If you're vowing to eat better in the new year, your vacation to North Dakota can accommodate that resolution too, including Mezzaluna in Fargo, the Red Pepper in Grand Forks, Piroque Grille in Bismarck and 10 North Main in Minot. Most restaurants now offer a healthy choice menu. So even if they aren’t catering specifically to a healthy option crowd, you can still find healthy choices.

Your trip to North Dakota can even be easier on the pocketbook. Check out our packages and deals page and start planning!
