Step into history in Bismarck, the state capital of North Dakota. Founded along the route of Lewis and Clark's famous expedition west, Bismarck was once inhabited by the Mandan Native American tribes, from which the neighboring town of Mandan takes its name. Together, these two cities form the Bismarck-Mandan Metropolitan Statistical Area, in which you can find many exciting activities to occupy you during your stay. Book your flights to Bismark through the Bismarck Municipal Airport (BIS), just three and a half miles south of the city itself.
There aren't many Bismarck hotels just outside the airport but, with BIS so close to the city center, it hardly matters. When it comes to transportation for those fresh off Bismarck flights, you can choose to rent a car from one of the three on-site agencies, or check with your hotel to see if they offer shuttle services to and from the airport. Taxis can be found at the curbside just outside of the main arrivals terminal. Settle in to your hotel and then set out to see what Bismarck has to offer. Tour the State Capitol or walk the banks of the Missouri River, where Lewis and Clark paddled so many years ago. There are also great jogging and biking paths here. Patrons of all ages will find something to enjoy at the North Dakota Heritage Center, where you can learn about regional history, culture, geology, and more. The Dakota Zoo is a great place to observe animals, especially if you have kids with you. Later, do some shopping at Kirkwood Mall near the city center and grab a bite to eat downtown.
