Bismarck

— 1 night
Bismarck is the capital of the U.S. state of North Dakota and the county seat of Burleigh County. Kick off your visit on the 12th (Sun): admire nature's wide array of creatures at The Dakota Zoo, then grab your bike and head to Keelboat Park, and then steep yourself in history at On-A-Slant Village. On the next day, shop like a local with North Dakota Heritage Center & State Museum, then get a sense of history and politics at North Dakota State Capitol Building, then appreciate the history behind Buffalo Statue, and finally immerse yourself in nature at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park.

Geographic Center of the North American Continent
A primarily rural state, North Dakota is the ancient home of the Lakota tribe. Norwegian settlers once made up the European population, and one of the state's major attractions is the Norsk Høstfest, the largest Norwegian festival in the United States. The vast plains and never-ending sky inspire the many orchestras that call the state home. The spirituality of the music is second only to the spirituality of the people, as the state has the nation's highest percentage of churchgoing residents. The state's open fields are conducive to fishing, hunting, and winter activities.
