The Western Edge, is not only rolling plains and prairie buttes; it’s an area that is diverse in outdoor experiences and family entertainment.  Dickinson is located in southwest North Dakota, a short drive away from the Theodore Roosevelt National Park, the Little Missouri State Park, and over a million acres of US Forest Grasslands that are home to the badlands, a rugged landscape of twisted hills, juniper trees and a variety of large and small wildlife.
 
Organizing your trip and itinerary can be as diverse as you want it to be.  Hike or bike many of the trails through the badlands; you’ll be played out by the end of the day and ready to relax at one of the many restaurants and lodging facilities in Dickinson.  
 
Love golfing? The Heart River Golf Course in Dickinson is an 18-hole; par 72 lay out, a highly regarded course combining a rolling top nine with a wooded bottom nine that brings plenty of trees and water into play.  
 
Let’s switch over to the kids, or maybe the grownup kids. The Dakota Dinosaur Museum is open May 1st through Labor Day, with eleven full-scale dinosaurs, complete earth science exhibit, spectacular rock and mineral collection, and numerous fossils.  A rare complete Triceratops skull is on display in the museum, attracting thousands of visitors annually.  
 
Everyone has history.  Ours is unique with the Upper Plains Native Americans, the cowboy experiences, and the settlers who came from Europe, bringing with them their foods, culture and crafts.  Theodore Roosevelt ranched just west of Dickinson, where he owned the Maltese Cross Ranch and the Elkhorn Ranch in the late 1800’s.  The Theodore Roosevelt Center is located at Dickinson State University.  Stop over to the Dickinson Museum Center to learn about the early settlers, how they struggled on the open prairie, endured hardships, and experienced the joys of self reliance, all with the lack of social media in their lives. 
 
The art and culture is unique at the Ukrainian Cultural Institute in Dickinson where the Psyanka (Easter Egg) continues to be a delicate handcraft that is passed onto each generation and shared with visitors. Each July the North Dakota Ukrainian Festival is held over several days with dancers in costume.  The Ukrainian Stepovi Dity Dancers, ranging from youth to adult, are brightly colored with lively performances that embody the spirit of expression.
 
Downtown Dickinson has the unique stores that make shopping experiences fun while in town.  Stix n’ Twigs organic restaurant, along with fine dining at the BrickHouse Grille gives the upscale experience for residents and visitors.  Enjoy history and a great cup of locally roasted coffee at The Brew Coffee House, located near the city center.  Unique shopping are all located within walking distance of the restaurant areas.
