3 Day Itinerary

A Suggested Itinerary “Western Edge” Style

Day 1
Your travels begin on Interstate 94 west. Take the exit to Richardton, ND, and stop and tour the Assumption Abbey. The Bavarian Romanesque structure was first completed in 1909 and was remodeled in 2001. The Abbey Church is a beautiful stop for all to enjoy!

After your arrival back to Dickinson, take in one of our fine restaurants for lunch. We offer anything from fast food to fine dining.

Your next adventure will take you on the Enchanted Highway. Back on to Interstate 94 going east just 10 miles, you will make your way to the town called Gladstone (Exit 72) where you will meet up with the first scenic structure, The Geese in Flight. Your travel of 32 miles will lead your group on a path of adventure to viewing the GIANT metal sculptures. You won’t want to miss the Tin Family, Teddy Roosevelt, Pheasants on the Prairie, and the Grasshoppers in the Field. At the end of the Enchanted Highway you will find a quaint town, Regent, ND. Here you will find the Enchanted Highway Gift Shop and the Hettinger County Historical Society Museum.

Travel back to Dickinson where you can have supper and relax at one of our 19 lodging properties.

Day 2
Start your day with a hearty breakfast; you will need that to continue on with a visit to our famous Dickinson Dinosaur Museum. You will travel back in time as you view life-sized dinosaurs, rock and mineral exhibits, and seashell and fossil collections. Step into local history by entering the nearby Joachim Regional Museum. At the same complex you can enjoy our Dickinson Museum Center and visit Prairie Outpost Park, which takes you on an outside journey through southwestern North Dakota’s historic past. The adjacent Pioneer Machinery Building is home to a threshing machine, a miniature farm house, and other early pioneer items.

Next stop will be a visit to the Ukrainian Cultural Institute. Viewing the colorful Pysanka Egg collection will be a lasting impression as you continue your journey on the Western Edge.
