Day Trip for Summer Itinerary

Summer is one of North Dakota’s best-kept secrets. What’s a better place to experience it than Minot? Nowhere! Start your day out right with a cup of coffee at With Room Coffee. With an array of unique flavors, they will broaden your taste palette horizons. Along with delectable pastries for a light bite.


Take your cup of Joe to go and head to the Minot Farmer’s Market, where you can enjoy fresh locally grown fruits, vegetables, and other various snacks. Also presented at the Farmer’s Market can be local potters, artists, and craft makers, a fun way to spend the morning.


In the same vicinity is Minot’s beautiful Oak Park. One of Minot’s largest park offers paved trails for walking and bicycling.


After all that we are sure you’ve worked up an appetite. Everyone loves a fresh piece of pizza, enjoy one of Minot’s own, Sammy’s Pizza. Their pizza making has been in the Minot community for over 60 years.


We love critters in Minot, so head over to the Roosevelt Park Zoo where you can see and interact with an abundance of animals. Roosevelt Park Zoo is the oldest zoo in North Dakota and one of only three zoos in North America to have a catwalk.

After a warm stroll through the zoo, we are sure you need to cool off, take a dip into our Roosevelt Pool, Minot’s only outdoor pool. The perfect place to catch some sun rays and enjoy some relaxation.

With such a busy day we’ve got the place to fill your appetite, Souris River Brewing. A local brewing company and restaurant with all North Dakota ingredients. They can show you what North Dakota is about.

Get a little risky with a secret probation style speakeasy pub that is underground. Feel like you got thrown back in time at Saul’s. With a fun vibe and creative drinks, it’s an experience local to Minot.


Unfortunately summer fun has to come to an end, but Minot always welcomes you for continued fun throughout all the seasons.
