    St. James Basilica

    by Basaic Written Oct 20, 2015

    The Basilica of Saint James Catholic Church is the only minor basilica in North Dakota and one of only about 60 in the country. This gothic-style church is quite beautiful and has great stained glass windows. It is right on the main street through Jamestown. Open 7 AM to 9 PM daily.

    Check out the real buffalo herd

    by zrim Updated Aug 6, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Next to the world's largest buffalo, there is an easily viewed herd of real buffalo. The star attraction is "White Cloud" an albino buffalo, pretty rare. Can you spot white cloud in the forefront of my photo?

    The town's propoganda states that an albino buffalo birth is a one in a billion event.

    Frontier Village

    by zrim Updated Jul 24, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Located on Louis L'Amour Street (in honor of the famous western author who was born here) the Frontier Village seems nice enough as these things go. We took in the buffalo and the village at 7:30 a.m. so we had the place to ourselves and were not bothered by people trying to hawk souveniers or by noisy little kids underfoot. Personally, I'd steer clear during normal operating hours, but it looks like good wholesome (if hokey) fun for the family-minded.

    Perkin's: Even Better Chain Restaurant

    by Basaic Written Oct 20, 2015

    $18 as of September 2015. Perkins is a family chain of restaurants known for good food and some great baked goods. The atmosphere is family oriented and the menu has some tasty items. My waitress was pretty good. I am always happy to see a Perkins when looking for a place to eat. Open 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

    Favorite Dish: Rajun Cajun Bowl

    Applebee's: Good Chain Restaurant

    by Basaic Written Oct 20, 2015

    $15 as of July 2015. Appearance-wise this was a typical Applebee's, inside and out. Lots of bright colors and an atmosphere that is fine for families despite the full service bar in the center. My waitress was efficient and friendly. The food was delivered quickly and was very good. Hours are 11 AM to 12 AM Sunday through Thursday and 11 AM to 1 AM on Friday and Saturday.

    Favorite Dish: 4 Cheese Mac and Cheese w/Chicken Strips.
