Take a North Dakota Education Vacation

Learn new skills and discover new cultures with these educational vacation ideas.

If you're seeking a vacation experience with hands-on activities, opportunities to learn new skills and chances to truly discover new cultures, education vacations are for you.

North Dakota visitors can learn about the state's culture and heritage in a new way. By getting out of their cars and tour buses and into fields, kitchens and canoes, history comes alive! Education Vacations cater to groups or individuals looking to combine learning new skills with fun and adventure. Create your own customized educational, entertaining experience in a variety of areas such as agriculture, Native American studies, art, birding, immigrant cultures of North Dakota, living history and paleontology.  

With an education vacation you can take a few hours, a day or even a week and immerse yourself in an experience that's much more doing than seeing.

Examples of education vacations include:

  • Dinosaur digs
  • Earthlodge exploration
  • Gardening
  • Guided birding
  • Harvesting cold-weather grapes in a vineyard
  • Pottery making
  • Quilting
