For anyone familiar with North Dakota, you probably know it's considered one of the coldest states countrywide. For half the year, from late October to late March, there's a high probably of the temperature hovering around freezing or, during the heart of winter, hanging in the single digits, if not the negatives, leaving all but the most hearty and resourceful people and dogs with little to do and a lot of chill to withstand. While there may not be as many places to check out as there are in other nearby states, that doesn't mean there's nothing to do once the thermometer falls. In fact, with a little bit of holiday help, North Dakotan ingenuity and some warm clothes, there's still quite a bit to enjoy with your furry friend while you whittle away the winter days.
North Dakota might not be the easiest place to spend the coldest months of the year, but that doesn't mean it doesn't offer residents and visitors alike some unique opportunities to take it all in stride and have some fun to boot. From roadside attractions to gorgeous landscapes and every means through which to see them, the Peace Garden State has plenty of things to do even when most of the red disappears from the thermometer, as long as you know where to look. Now that you have some ideas, go explore!
