North Dakota Tourism partners with Montana, South Dakota, National Park Service and Heritage Groups

BISMARCK, N.D. – North Dakota residents and visitors now have more resources to enjoy adventures along the Lewis & Clark National Historic Trail. New self-guided resources are available to learn about the communities, attractions, events and visitor experiences, including free self-guided vacation adventure maps are available online at  Printed brochures and regionally focused “Circle Tour” maps are available at various local chambers of commerce and visitor centers across North Dakota.

The new “Exploring the Lewis & Clark Trail” materials showcase the various attractions and historical references along the trail through North Dakota, South Dakota and Montana. Four self-guided Circle Tour vacation maps have been created for North Dakota. These highlight historic Lewis and Clark Expedition sites, visitor attractions in North Dakota communities, and national and state parks along the trail.

“Out of any place along the trail, Lewis & Clark spent the most time in what is now North Dakota. These new resources help adventure traveler’s step back in time to follow in their footsteps and enjoy North Dakota in some of the same ways,” said North Dakota Tourism Director Sara Otte Coleman. “A quick weekend trip or a week’s worth of site-seeing can be easily put together using the new Circle Tour maps and information.”

The “Exploring the Lewis & Clark Trail” materials also mention ways to take advantage of site-seeing options off the trail such as Theodore Roosevelt National Park, and museums in Dickinson and Medora.
