What is a state without cities? North Dakota is made up of some very quaint townships as well as larger towns and a few metropolitan cities. Each is made up of a generally friendly population of people who seem to know each other no matter where they go. Each place has its own unique charm and offers a different variety of interesting places. There are the boom towns of Williston, Watford city, and Dickinson that have grown recently due to oil wells being built there. There is the Air Force Base in Minot, the State Capital in Bismarck, and Fargo's large shopping areas. Do not forget about the smaller towns such as Jamestown, home to the World's Largest Buffalo, and Valley City, the city of Bridges. If you like to explore even smaller towns, there are some interesting scenery, buildings, and museums to be discovered in the city of Oakes, Lamour, Lisbon, Carrington, Wimbledon, and many others, as can be found in the following posts.
