North Dakota is a strong agricultural and beef cattle state, and many Simmental breeders call it home. The Bismarck and Mandan area provides a variety of activities for the entire family including the Heritage Center, Missouri River, Fort Lincoln, and many more attractions.
The North Dakota state capitol is a beautiful site to see. It is located next to the Heritage Center, which includes a variety of artifacts and pieces of North Dakota's history, dating back 600 million years. The Missouri River, the landmark that separates Bismarck and Mandan, offers numerous recreational activities. Fort Lincoln, just south of Mandan, is a fascinating historical site offering military and Native American history. Tour the On-A-Slant Indian Village with reconstructed earth lodges or walk through Custer's house to step back in time. The North Dakota Badlands and Theodore Roosevelt National Park are a 90 minute drive west of Bismarck and Mandan. Additionally, ND offers elite fishing, golfing, rugged biking, fine shopping, dining, and so much more!
