Where’s the Best Place to Soak Up the Sun in Your Destination?

Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Beyond the smell of sagebrush and prairie flowers, the rugged badlands are intertwined with the juniper trees as they drop into the draws and create a home for the wild horses, bison and prairie dogs towns.

The small local town of Medora hosts a nightly summer outdoor musical, pitchfork steak fondue, local western shops, mountain bike rentals, and the North Dakota Cowboy Hall of Fame. It's a place of western history that is surrounded by peaceful safety.
