Of course, once the open highway was in front of us it was time to focus on the task ahead and it quickly became clear how large America really is. Even just driving through Minnesota there were points where there was nothing, but fields and our own road for as far as the eye could see…and then we hit North Dakota!!
When planning this trip no state gave us more trouble than North Dakota. So vast and so out of the way, there really needed to be a good reason to go…There wasn’t. We couldn’t find a single thing worth venturing into the top of America for. Now I’m sure the ND residents would argue that they have a great state there, with plenty to do, but unfortunately this couple wouldn’t agree. What we did find though was a casino tucked just inside the corner of North Dakota and, as you’ll notice from a couple of our visiting choices down the road, we love to gamble. The first stop on our trip therefore ended up being The Dakota Magic Casino in Hankinson, ND.
