6 Places In North Dakota That Are Like A Caribbean Paradise In The Summer
The time to soak up some sun and enjoy the great outdoors is here. We’d all love to take a trip down to the Bahamas or Caicos in the summer, but that’s not always possible. The cost is prohibitive, plus we’ve all got responsibilities like family and work that can make taking time off difficult. Don’t fear, though! You don’t have to travel all the way to the ocean to get some beach time in. Not many people would think of North Dakota as having places where you can partake in such luxuries, but it actually does. There are attractions that feel like a Caribbean paradise in North Dakota and they will make your summer a blast. With huge natural (and man-made) lakes, plenty of recreational areas and parks, and fun attractions, your summer can feel almost as good as an overseas vacation … without ever having to leave the Peace Garden State.

What are some more beaches in North Dakota?
We may have a bad reputation as a dull state, and it's true, we are landlocked. But there's plenty to do in the summer in North Dakota. We have some great beaches in the state that are just as good as what you'd find by the ocean. Check out Lake Renwick — this park is absolutely gorgeous.
What is summer in North Dakota like?
North Dakota is great because we have four distinct seasons here. Summers are not typically too hot or humid, so it's an ideal time to get outside. Many states don't have this opportunity and suffer from extreme mugginess, so appreciate the Peace Garden State!
What are the best lakes in North Dakota?
There are many excellent man-made and natural lakes in North Dakota. These bodies of water are perfect for a day out on the water in the summer. We love Des Moines Lake and Rice Lake, in particular.
