Being a state the size of an average Eastern European country with just a few hundred thousand people makes often seem like you are alone. Experiencing North Dakota without a car is almost impossible, and I would recommend to visit this state as part of a road trip. There aren’t really any touristy sights beside the rather pleasant town of Fargo along the Minnesota border; most of the state consists of flat fields and oil and gas exploration areas as the area has had a boom in fracking during the last couple of years. It may come as a surprise that this small community is the most fiscally sound in the United States with a constant budget surplus and a booming economy.
