Weekend Getaway to Medora, North Dakota

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.

History buffs learn the story behind the town’s namesake Medora de Mores. Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States, has strong roots in Medora.

Outdoor lovers appreciate golf at one of America’s Top 100 golf courses, Bully Pulpit Golf Course. Here’s how I fondly remember my Medora weekend trip.

Unwind at Medora Uncork’d

Medora Uncork’d with a glass of Aronia Berry wine from Wolf Creek Winery in Cole Harbor, North Dakota, pairing that with a BBQ Blueberry Meatball flatbread appetizer.

Grab Breakfast at Farmhouse Café

They offer traditional breakfasts like the hearty farmhouse breakfast with two eggs, hash browns, breakfast meat, and starch choice.

Explore the North Dakota Cowboy Hall of Fame

You’ll find exhibits on North Dakota’s deep-rooted rodeo history, North Dakota ranchers, and indigenous Native Americans.

Visit Theodore Roosevelt National Park (South)

Several hiking trails and scenic overlooks branched off the 36-mile Scenic Loop Drive.

Dinner at the Pitchfork Steak Fondue

Chefs dressed in cowboy hats and red bandanas skewered steaks five-deep on a pitchfork and then fondued them in huge vats of boiling oil while we watched.

Enjoy Some Live Music at the Medora Musical

The musical features live on-stage, the Coal Diggers band, and the Burning Hills Singers. We took an informative 35-minute backstage tour before the musical.
