You can find Beach just off of I-94 about 5 miles from the Montana border. Here’s an extra fun fact for you: Beach was not named after being on a beach, in fact it is quite far from anything you’d consider a beach! It was named after Captain Warren C. Beach that lead the railroad surveyors through the area when they were planning their western expansions in 1880.
If you’re going to visit this town, you might as well stop by historic Medora just 30 minutes east of it, as well. It’d be a perfect day of North Dakota tourism!
