As oil and gas housing specialists, Blu Corporate Housing wants everyone who uses our furnished rentals to enjoy their time in Bismarck North Dakota. As the oil and gas boom continues, workers and their families are flocking to the city to find work or take up positions here.
If you’re one of them, you probably want to know what’s going on here and what to do when you’re not working. Here are just a few attractions in and around Bismarck that fit the bill.
The North Dakota Heritage Center is where we celebrate our past and where everything we have collected over the past hundred or so years can be seen by everyone. It’s free to get in and has a lot of history on display. The building is modern, spacious and has enough room for the exhibits and visitors. It’s a good day out for all the family.
You can’t miss the State Capitol Building when you drive through Bismarck. It’s an art deco tower in the center of town and is open to the public. It’s an ideal stop after checking out the North Dakota Heritage Center and if it’s a clear day you can see for miles from the roof. Art deco is a fantastic artistic style and there’s plenty on display here.
Dakota Zoo is over 50 years old and can be found at Arbor Avenue south of Bismarck. Spread over 90 acres, this zoo has over 600 animals spread over 125 species and is growing steadily. It’s an excellent example of a zoo that takes animal welfare seriously and offers a lot of educational as well as entertaining exhibits and displays. Well worth a visit!
McDowell Dam Nature Park is a great place to while away a sunny afternoon with the family, have a picnic or walk gently round while enjoying the weather. It’s a wide open space with a lake but, despite the name, no dam. However, there’s a hiking trail that loops the lake that works well for a gentle stroll.
Gateway to Science is a relatively new attraction that is growing steadily. It’s a hands-on science and educational center where staff are always ready to help out, demonstrate science in action and provide a little wonder for the kids. It’s built around children and is a great place to take them for an afternoon.
Those are just five of the many things to do in Bismarck North Dakota. It’s a great place to live. If you need somewhere to stay while you’re working here, contact Blu Corporate Housing today!
