Smell the Flowers at the International Peace Garden
Stop and smell the flowers at the International Peace Garden in the Turtle Mountains of Dunseith, North Dakota. The International Peace Garden celebrates peace and friendship. You can enjoy the local cacti, succulents, and floral gardens, which are open year-round. Sign up for a guided tour to learn about the unique history of the International Peace Garden and to check out the best sites. During the winter, the local grounds are the perfect skiing destination.

Improve Your Golf Game
If your idea of relaxation is a day spent on the green, you’ll love the many exceptional golf courses in North Dakota. In fact, golfing in the beautiful outdoors is one of the best things to do in North Dakota.
Check out the Bully Pulpit Golf Course near the Badlands. This 18-hole golf course is just south of Medora and is an exceptional golf getaway. You’ll work on your golf skill overlooking the meadows, woodlands, and canyons. Other golf courses to check out in North Dakota include the Links of North Dakota in Williston and the Dakota Winds Golf Course in Hankinson. After working up an appetite, you can grab a meal or cold drink from one of the on-site sports bars.
Enjoy a Delicious Steak Dinner
North Dakota knows how to do steak, which means you’ll have endless options when it comes to choosing a suitable restaurant. Start out in Medora and try the Pitchfork Steak Fondue, which is well-known for its delectable steaks. But, even better, you’ll dine overlooking sweeping views of the Badlands Bluffs. The restaurant has an outdoor terrace, which will easily become one of your favorite views in the area.
Make sure you also check out the Cork ‘N Cleaver in Fargo, North Dakota. This steak restaurant has been a local favorite since the 1970s, and there’s a reason that people continue returning year after year.
Chase the Northern Lights
North Dakota is an excellent location to witness the famous Northern Lights. The Northern Lights can appear any time of the year. Signing up for a guided tour increases your chances of catching the beautiful light show. However, even if you don’t get to witness the iconic lights, the clear skies still give off a memorable starlight show each night. We recommend Central North Dakota to get the clearest skies possible. Bring a blanket and a bottle of wine, and prepare for one of the most luxurious and romantic nights of your life.
You could also give yourself more time to catch the Northern Lights by booking a glamping trip. Glamping is like camping in the outdoors but connects you to all the luxurious amenities you desire, like a soft bed and electricity.
North Dakota has a lot of adventure and entertainment to offer travelers of all types. But if you’re looking for a luxurious trip, you’ll love the ideas on this list. Sip tea overlooking North Dakota’s beauty or spend the evening stargazing before enjoying a delicious steak dinner. Either way, a North Dakota trip will surely become a favorite getaway.
