Bouncing back from the floods that tore through the city in 2011, Minot is buzzing with life. Fueled by the energy boom of the Bakken oil fields, the city has turned into one of the leading North Dakota tourist destinations, offering everything from modern art to historic buildings and museums, and of course -- an abundance of new friends waiting to be discovered.
To start your trip off with a bang, Minot’s visitors can spend time at any of the city’s public parks. Watch the ducks swim in Oak Park’s fountains, go swimming in the pools of Roosevelt Park, go golfing at Souris Valley Golf Course, or take a scenic walk along the river on the Riverwalk of Minot. Visitors can also explore Minot’s heritage and history at the Scandinavian Heritage Park, which features Scandinavian-style houses, churches, and other buildings, as well as a gift shop and informational plaques. Alternatively, tour the Dakota Territory Air Museum, Taube Museum of Art, or Old Soo Depot Transportation Museum.
Shopping is a great way to pass time in between outdoor activities, as Minot is home to the Dakota Square Mall and Arrowhead Shopping Center, as well as independent stores like 52 West which specializes in Western attire, Bernina Plus -- a quilt shop, and Restore Thrift Store -- Minot’s most popular secondhand shop.
