North Central North Dakota

North Dakota's friendliness is ingrained in every part of our culture. In fact, "Dakota" is a Sioux word meaning "friend," and our nickname is "The Peace Garden State."

You'll see why when you visit the International Peace Garden, a magnificent 2,300-acre tribute to the world's longest unfortified international border. Whether it's a county fair, a powwow, summer theater or jammin' at a music festival, you'll always receive a friendly welcome when you celebrate, dance, sing and dine with us.
