If you’re coming home for the holidays or taking a little of your Christmas break to travel this season, our travel counselors at North Dakota Tourism will be available during office hours from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. CST. Our office will be closed on Monday, Dec. 26 and Monday, Jan. 2.
This year you won’t find much snow in North Dakota, but our ski area remain open and there’s still LOTS to do, including hiking and biking the Maah Daah Hey Trail during these 40-degree days. The Missouri River has open-water fishing and some smaller lakes and bays are frozen for ice fishing. Great destinations like the North Dakota Heritage Center, the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center and the International Peace Gardens are open. Tour through Theodore Roosevelt National Park. See Fort Mandan and hear stories of the Corps of Discovery from the winter of 1804-1805. Take in a hockey game and cheer for North Dakota State University as they travel to the FCS Championship! It’s a great time to enjoy North Dakota.
