The hit movie, Bucket List, reminded American travelers that they may still lack travel destinations to complete their list. And on that roster of 50 states, the one most likely still remaining is North Dakota!
If this is the one state remaining on your ” bucket list”, Shebby Lee Tours can take you there.
We offer a variety of North Dakota itineraries including “Teddy Roosevelt’s Dakota”, “East Dakota”, “West Dakota”- July 22-28, 2010, “American Legacy”, “Custer’s Trail”, and an All-North Dakota itinerary. As a small, specialized tour company, we don’t run all itineraries every year, so check the departure schedule to see what’s running this year.
North Dakota’s “legendary” slogan is no idle boast: The fortieth state has been home to Sacagawea, Teddy Roosevelt, George Armstrong Custer, and Lewis and Clark. More recent natives include Lawrence Welk, Roger Maris, Angie Dickinson, Peggy Lee, Eric Sevareid, and Louis L’Amour.
Among North Dakota’s many attractions you’ll find: a replica of the fort that Lewis and Clark’s Corps of Discovery built to brave the cold winter of 1804-05, the site of Sacagawea’s Hidatsa village, Custer’s final posting at Fort Abraham Lincoln, the world’s largest Sons of Norway Lodge (with authentic cuisine and entertainment), plus three genuine white buffalo, Louis L’Amour’s original writing desk & cabin, an authentic Viking sailing ship and Teddy Roosevelt’s old stompin’ grounds in Medora, which has transformed itself into a rousing tribute to the “Bully” president with a one-man show, pitchfork fondue, the outdoor Medora Musical, plus Theodore Roosevelt National Park in the old roughrider’s beloved Badlands. In fact, TR often stated that he would have never become president if it weren’t for his experiences in Dakota prior to his political career.
See for yourself why North Dakota has been such a transformative place for so many people, visitors and residents alike. Book your tour to North Dakota this year!
