The Magic City is living up to its moniker

Minot is best known as the home of the annual Norsk Hostfest and the North Dakota State Fair. But the city has much more in the way of attractions and events.

Auto racing enthusiasts can feed their adrenaline rushes at Magic City International Dragway or Nodak Speedway, while golfers have their picks of several courses, including the Jack Hoeven Wee Links for kids just starting out.
