You certainly can’t compare the parks on this trip with the big attractions in Utah or Alberta, but North Dakota, Minnesota and Manitobahave one great advantage: you have the beautiful nature almost to yourself, foreign tourists hardly get lost in this area. Nevertheless, the landscape is magnificent; bare badlands, huge lakes and lonely birch forests alternate. And cultural history with wooden watchtowers and earth dwellings of the First Nations is added on top.
Parks and Gardens
The International Peace Garden, shared by the United States and Canada, is unique in its kind. Each year, gardeners plant more than 150,000 flowers in the huge complex, which features, among other things, a flower-decorated sundial, a bell tower, several fountains and a memorial with remains of New York’s 9/11 attack!
