North Dakota State Fairgrounds is definitely a place worth seeing.
It's located in Minot, which is an estimated 100 miles (161 kilometers) from the state capital, Bismarck.
If you're hoping for a quick commute from your hotel, it would be a good idea to make a reservation at one of the 3 nearby options ahead of time. Spend some time comparing the amenities and features of the Holiday Inn Minot - Riverside and Noble Inn, situated within 2 miles (3 kilometers) of North Dakota State Fairgrounds.
You will find some reasonably priced accommodations a short commute away. Make inquiries at the Sleep Inn & Suites and the MainStay Suites.
With all the excitement of a day's adventures, it's sometimes easy to forget about lunch. Just a short walk away, Cinne Smiths is an excellent place to recharge your batteries. If you're after something a little more substantial, book a table at Ground Round, which is also nearby. You can keep walking and while away an evening testing the wine, beer and whatever else entices you at Capri Bar.
