Medora, North Dakota, is an off the beaten path, seasonal town.
Often North Dakota remains the last state visited by those earning the “Visited All 50 States” badge, as North Dakota is the least-visited state in the union. But a second look reveals Medora, North Dakota, as a hidden treasure for history buffs, outdoor lovers, and photographers.
Here’s how I fondly remember my Medora weekend getaway.
We kicked off the weekend at Medora Uncork’d with a glass of Aronia Berry wine from Wolf Creek Winery in Cole Harbor, North Dakota.
At Bully Pulpit Golf Course, ranked one of America’s Top 100 Golf Courses, we found ourselves immersed in the Badland’s landscape.
In Theodore’s, setting in front of the beautiful brick fireplace, we enjoyed a meal worthy of any gourmet. The bison Osso Bucco was fork-tender and served with braised au jus and a creamy horseradish sauce.
They offer traditional breakfasts like the hearty farmhouse breakfast with two eggs, hash browns, breakfast meat, and starch choice.
You’ll find exhibits on North Dakota’s deep-rooted rodeo history, North Dakota ranchers, and indigenous Native Americans.
