On your way to Yellowstone National Park huh? Well, coming west of the Mississippi has gotten a lot easier since Lewis and Clark’s time, but you and the family will still need to stretch those legs sometime before you get to Old Faithful. And Medora, North Dakota is the perfect place to do just that! Here’s why…
You’re a National Park fanatic!
Be inspired by the Badlands that inspired a President. Theodore Roosevelt National Park has wild horses — and so much more. Set in the heart of the rugged North Dakota Badlands, TRNP is chalk-full of bison, elk, prairie dogs, and more. And it’s not just wildlife! The “Teddy” has numerous hiking trials and is laden with scenic overlooks, which make for great photo opportunities. It’s North Dakotas only National Park — and you need to see it!
We all gotta eat. Between hiking, shopping, the Medora Musical, and Bully Pulpit Golf Course, you may wonder when you and your gang will find time to eat. Relax, we’ve got your back. In Medora, there is no shortage of places to grab a bite and take a load off. Below are the best places to eat when you are in between your Medora adventures! Take a look.
You’ve reached the back nine! Your drives were true and your irons accurate. Now the real test of your golf skill begins. We’ll start you off slowly, but once fourteen comes around — all bets are off.
Rattlesnakes will rattle in the brush. Your golf cart will squeal as you question whether or not it’ll make it up the bluff. Captivating vistas await, but so do daunting tee shots and tucked-away pins. You’re golfing IN the Badlands. Not around them, in them. As General Alfred Sully would say, “the Badlands look like Hell with the fires put out.” No golfing experience comes close to this.
You’re rounds almost finished. Plan your shots out and execute them. Just make sure you take the time to appreciate the scenery. Bully! READ MORE »

One of the things I love about travelling is discovering the hidden treasures in every region, places that might not be as well-known as the big cities but that have their own special magic and appeal. Recently my boys and I visited North Dakota for a week and were able to discover one of those hidden treasures first-hand: the tourist town of Medora, just outside Theodore Roosevelt National Park.
You’ve checked into the Rough Riders Hotel, picked up the the perfect souvenirs for your best friend at the Rough Riders Gift Shop and treated yourself to the best ice cream this side of the Missouri. Your’re going to a Theodore Roosevelt Salute to Medora and of course you already have your tickets to the Medora Musical. Only thing is, you still have a couple of hours to kill. What do you do? If watching your smiling kids do all the running and jumping while you sit and relax sounds amazing, saunter on over to the Family Fun Center.
