Bismarck is the capital of the U.S. Kick off your visit on the 10th (Tue): take an in-depth tour of North Dakota Heritage Center & State Museum and then sample the tasty concoctions at Laughing Sun Brewing Co.. Here are some ideas for day two: get a sense of history and politics at North Dakota State Capitol Building, then contemplate the waterfront views at Missouri River, then let the kids burn off some steam at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park, and finally steep yourself in history at On-A-Slant Village.
