Walk Underneath Tigers, See Rare Animals, And More At The Roosevelt Park Zoo In North Dakota
North Dakota has only a handful of zoos. There are two in the Red River Valley – Red River Zoo in Fargo and the Chahinkapa Zoo in Wahpeton – and one in the state’s capital city, the Dakota Zoo in Bismarck. You can also experience wild animals in the west when you explore places like the badlands, where the bison really do roam and wild horse herds thrive. One of the best places to see rare animals in ways you never have before is the Roosevelt Park Zoo in the Magic City.
