Bison in North Dakota
Bison still roam North Dakota

Did you know that North Dakota farmers and ranchers annually produce enough wheat for 108 billion sandwiches, enough barley for 42 billion cans of beer and enough potatoes for 2 billion servings of french fries? You betcha'. So that goes to prove that it doesn't snow all the time in this northern Midwest state! In fact, locals say the amount of snow is one of the biggest misconceptions about North Dakota. Sure, it can get mighty cold in the winter, but the mild, sunny summer weather just can't be beat. And one of North Dakota's favorite pastimes, fishing, can be done anytime of the year.

Fargo, located on the eastern edge of the state near Minnesota, is the largest community in North Dakota. In fact, the Fargo area is the largest metropolitan area between Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minn. and Spokane, Wash. In the past few years, several magazines have proclaimed the city as one of the most stress-free metropolitan areas in America - good news if you're heading there on business. 

And the spirit of the West is still alive in North Dakota, which has 60 wildlife refuges, more than any other state. North Dakota also hosts almost fifty local and regional rodeos that attract hundreds of cowboys each year. An annual springtime event is the Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Medora, most definitely an event you don't want to miss!

Historical Note: In 1804 Meriwether Lewis and William Clark led an expedition up the Missouri River on their way to the Pacific Ocean. In North Dakota they met a young Shoshone woman named Sakakawea who helped guide them to the Yellowstone River the following year.
