Here Are 9 Of North Dakota’s Tiniest Towns That Are Always Worth A Visit
North Dakota’s small towns make up a majority of the state’s places. From charming little cities to delightful tiny “blink and you’ll miss it” towns, each one can be hiding some gems that you wouldn’t realize you were missing. These 9 little towns in the Peace Garden State may be small but they are always worth visiting, and here’s why:
The "city of murals" has rightfully gained its name from having a majority of the buildings beautifully painted with a wide variety of murals. It only has 72 residents and is like an art museum in the shape of a small town.
The geographical center of North Dakota, also called the "heart" of North Dakota, is the little town of McClusky. There are just about 378 residents and a few nice things to check out while you're there.
Pembina, population 592, is the oldest settlement in North Dakota and South Dakota, having pre-dated both of those states even being states by nearly a century.
4. Fort Ransom
Tucked away in the Sheyenne River Valley and surrounded by scenic forests, Fort Ransom is a lovely small town to visit if you like nature. There are only 77 people in this town, but it has quite a few great stops to visit.
Who wouldn't want to visit a place called Hope? Not only is this small town of 256 residents full of charm, it also has attractions like the old general store shown above that will make you feel nostalgic.
Medora is one of the most popular tourist towns in the entire Peace Garden State, and for good reason. It's like stepping foot into an Old West town while being surrounded by the beautiful badlands. Believe it or not, only 132 people live here! Yet hundreds upon hundreds more visit it every year.
Don't blink when you're passing through this town in southeast North Dakota or you'll miss it! With a population of only 22, Ludden is a very tiny town. Even though It's so small, it even comes with a tiny jail. You might consider jaywalking or something similarly sinister to get thrown in this adorable place!
Gackle is a lovely town in Logan County, North Dakota with just over 300 residents. They have quite a few pleasant places to visit.
Only 50 people live in this itty bitty town in North Dakota, and the reason people come see it is actually quite unusual. Not far outside of Nekoma is one of the state's most unusual structures - a Cold War-era pyramid that at one point was a huge radar.
