Wide open spaces are what comes to mind when one thinks of North Dakota, and
there are indeed plenty of those in the state. Much of that space is made up of
majestic mountains, rolling grasslands, and more gorgeous terrain. But there is
also Devils Lake, with 375 miles of shoreline and spanning over 122,000 acres.
Historic sites like the frontier town of Medora, the Knife River Indian Villages
are part of North Dakota's charm. Fishing, hiking, camping, mountain biking, and
other outdoor activities are plentiful in Lewis and Clark State Park, Turtle
River State Park, and throughout the wilderness regions of North Dakota. For
city life, Fargo and Grand Forks offer the Red River Zoo, North Dakota Museum of
Art, the Fargo Opera, and several fantastic malls.
