Cheap flights to North Dakota

Located in the northern midwest of the United States, North Dakota sits right at the USA’s bor-der with Canada next to Montana, Minnesota and South Dakota. With an area of more than 70,000 square miles, it is the 19th largest state of the USA but has one of the smallest popula-tions of the 50 states of the country (at slightly over 700,000). Located in the Great Plains region, it was admitted to statehood in 1880, making it the 40th American state. An area rich with fossil fuels like natural gas and coal, North Dakota is an energy-producing state, but its fertile lands also make it one of the leading exporters of agricultural products in the country.

Getting around

To get around North Dakota, one of the best ways is to simply rent a car and drive. The state’s extensive network of highways make driving easy even for tourists, and there’s so much to see that you’d want the flexibility of being able to stop whenever you want to for photos.

Otherwise, inter-city rail services are available; the AMTRAK rail network, for example, operates long-distance routes in and around North Dakota, and is efficient and reliable.

What to see and do

Strategically located inn the middle of the Central Flyway - the expressway in the sky for migra-tory birds - North Dakota is one of the best places in the world for bird-watching, especially dur-ing migratory seasons. With numerous birding festivals held in various parts of the state through-out the year, bird-watching is a popular recreation in these parts and feathery fowl residents are greatly respected and appreciated. Go on a birding hike or drive or attend a birding festival if you’re there in the correct time of year for a truly North Dakotan experience, where you can min-gle with the locals and enjoy the infectious excitement in the air when the feathery ones arrive.

The Turtle Mountain Birding Festival is a great one to attend - held around June, the festival promises sightings of dozens of different bird species including the Common Loons, Red-necked Grebes, Bald Eagles, Broad-winged Hawks, American White Pelicans, Canvasbacks and more. Even without the birds, though, the region is beautiful enough to keep you occupied - with clear lakes surrounded by oak trees, woodlands, aspen groves, wetlands, nature trails and more, these mountains offer plenty for both human and bird visitors.
