Southwest North Dakota

One of the least-visited regions in the US, Southwest North Dakota seduces those who dare to venture into the endless fields of grain with the rugged and raw beauty of its desolate landscape. Drive along remote two-lane routes and take in the region's wild scenery interrupted only here and there by abandoned homesteads. Mandan serves as a jumping-off point for Harmon Lake, a vast outdoor playground for anglers, bird-watchers, hikers, and bikers. To learn more about the horse culture and western lifestyle of the Great Plains, visit Medora and check out its Cowboy Hall of Fame. If you have kids, take them to see dinosaur skeletons in Dickinson. Whether you're searching for wilderness, cowboy history, or family fun, Southwest North Dakota has it all.
