If you live in Bismarck, there is a great group that just started up there called the SINKs and DINKs. They've got activities planned all the time and do everything. You can find their website if you do a search for their name.

Surprisingly good, the Dakota Zoo offers many exhibits of animals native to the prairie, but also has a good variety of other creatures. The monkey house at the zoo is a particular favorite of mine. There is also a longer "wilderness walk" (a mile or so?) that showcases the larger animals. The day I went was VERY hot, so I may have been better off taking the "train"-type observation vehicle that also follows the trail.
On a more irritating note, I brought a bag lunch into the zoo, expecting to enjoy my brie and baguette on the grass under a tree. After finding the perfect spot, I was embarrassingly shooed away by a zoo employee in a golf cart. He suggested that I go to the picnic area, which I was ultimately unable to locate. When I asked him if I was bothering anyone or breaking any rules, he replied that the children at the park might follow my lead and sit on the grass. Horrors! As there were no rules posted against grass-sitting, I'm still not quite sure what the problem was. Sad how one bad interaction seemed to wreck the whole experience.

Members of this zoo for many years the kids never tire of stopping off here on our trips home to visit the grandparents.
A very nice zoo with many, many animals. Lots to see and do.
Take a 20 minute tour ride on one of two zoo trains and see the sights and sounds the easy way.
Pop on into the gift shop - or get some ice cream at the parlor, or snacks at the concessions stand.
There is a playground inside the zoo too -

Based on who you talked, it might be the ugliest state capitol building... or it might be the most progressive building for its time.
The building was built in 1931, it had lots of things in it that are now standard now, but were quite progressive back then. It is still the tallest building in the state.

If you are interested in the history of North Dakota. The Heritage Center, beside the capital, is a great place to go! Very interesting and enjoyable.
It is very informative and neat. It is not all about reading...there is a buffalo, TeePee, and many more displays that make touring much for fun. Also for the kids, there is a section just for children and information on how and what they played with in those days.

More than just a museum of recent state political history, this place gives good information on North Dakota's Paleantological past.

Only around Christmas- Candy Cane Lane is a street that is completely decked out with Christmas lights. It is beautiful, and because my brother just got married, we got to see it from a limo!
