Bismarck is the capital of the U.S. You've now added Visit Fargo-Moorhead to your itinerary. Museum-lovers will get to explore North Dakota Heritage Center & State Museum and The North Dakota Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center. Fort Mandan and On-A-Slant Village will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with a short trip to National Buffalo Museum in Jamestown (about 1h 45 min away). And it doesn't end there: indulge your thirst for a good beer at Laughing Sun Brewing Co., pause for some photo ops at Sakakawea Statue, get to know the resident critters at The Dakota Zoo, and ponder the world of politics at North Dakota State Capitol Building.
