Camping, hiking, birding

Grab your telescope and head to Theodore Roosevelt National Park for a weekend of stargazing. Held in early September, the Dakota Nights Astronomy Festival is a great way to learn about the stars and galaxies with the help of expert guides.

Named for the US president that once escaped to this corner of the North Dakota backcountry after a family tragedy in 1884, the Theodore Roosevelt National Park mixes badlands with mountains and offers glimpses of the iconic American bison. The reserve is split into three: North, South and Elkhorn. The first sports rugged canyons dotted with colossal boulders. The second is about rolling grass badlands and buffalo. Elkhorn, meanwhile, is the place to go to trace the history of Teddy Roosevelt.
