The Most Criminally Overlooked Town In North Dakota And Why You Need To Visit
When people travel to North Dakota they usually go to places like Fargo for shopping or to Medora for all the touristy things you can do there, but there are more places within the state that deserve some attention. This town in particular should be getting way more visitors than it does, and here’s why:
Kenmare, North Dakota was founded in 1897 and still holds that older charm today.
Kenmare is a town in Ward County with a population of just above 1,000 residents. It is sometimes referred to as the Snow Goose Capitol of North Dakota and even has an annual
to celebrate this.
Despite its small town size, there is plenty to see and do here that makes for a memorable visit.
Even though Kenmare isn't usually labeled as one of the top tourist destinations in the state, it is highly underrated. The Kenmare Theater in the downtown is just the start of the great places this town has to offer.
The town takes pride in its history and origins.
Kenmare is home to one of North Dakota's only Danish Mills, shown above in the park.
