One of North Dakota’s more inspired and underrated attractions is the International Peace Garden. Located on the United States-Canada border, the Peace Garden is found straight north of Rugby, ND about a half hour. It covers just under 4 square miles and features over 150,000 flowers planted each year.
Here in the north-central North Dakota town of Bottineau, on the edge of the Turtle Mountains, sits Tommy Turtle, riding on an old-school snowmobile. One of the all-time classics, this bad boy is worth every second of a trip across the frozen tundra.
While in the area: Check out Lake Metigoshe State Park. One of ND’s best kept secrets. The Lake spans across the border into Canada and is accessible from both countries. This wooded, scenic, recreation-friendly lake might make you almost forget you’re in the middle of the Great Plains.
