There’s An Incredible Meteor Shower Happening This Summer And North Dakota Has A Front Row Seat

North Dakota is one of the best states to stargaze in thanks to low light pollution and a lot of open sky. Naturally, when a meteor shower passes over the earth, this means that the Peace Garden State is your front row seat to the show. In August of 2018, a meteor shower will be visible from the state and you do not want to miss the chance to see it.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
