Happy Birthday North Dakota
BISMARCK, N.D. - The North Dakota Department of Commerce today launched, LuvND.com, an interactive site celebrating North Dakota's 123rd birthday. The State turned 123 on November 2.
The site features 123 ways to explore the state, one for each year of statehood. The activities featured act as a virtual bucket list for those looking for North Dakota experiences.
"It's a unique way for people to celebrate our statehood and discover something new about North Dakota," said Sandy McMerty, director of Commerce's North Dakota Ambassadors program. "You can't help but look through the list and find a few things you've done and a lot more you'd like to do." A sampling of the activities listed includes:
Have a grinder at the Red Pepper in Grand Forks - named one of Esquire's best places for late-night food.
Climb North Dakota's highest point - White Butte (Elevation 3506') near Amidon.
Visit North Dakota's version of Stone Henge - Mystical Horizons near Bottineau.
Participate in a grape stomp at Red Trail Vineyard in Buffalo.
The site is the idea of Commerce's Ambassador Program which was launched in 2001 to encourage people living in or out of state to spread news about the great things happening in North Dakota through their personal and professional networks. The program's existing rolls include more than 8,000 people worldwide. To learn more about the Ambassador's program visit: www.ExperienceND.com.
