Try out one of our staff's suggestions on favorite things to do around town!

"We love being around the river in the summer time….Whether it’s having a drink/meal at a bar on the water or being out on the pontoon. The evenings and early mornings are especially awesome and so peaceful. Grabbing some coffee and cruising on the water at 7 am is my favorite!"

"I love the Bistro, inside and outside dining! They have the best hamburger and atmosphere in town."

"We love cruising on the motorcycle down river road or going for walks on river road. Summer time to me is all about being outdoors whether it be dining, music or church events."

"I love to make up a picnic lunch and meet a friend/family on the capitol lawn under a shaded tree!"

"I love that the Event Center is walking distance from Downtown. It’s so easy to grab a bite from any of the amazing restaurants like Peacock Alley, Fire Flour, or a pick-me-up from one of the coffee shops - Terra Nomad and Café Aroma are my go-tos."

"The river is one of my favorite spots in the Bismarck/Mandan area. It’s a place where you see people from all walks of life come together to enjoy nature and our community. Whether you like being on the water, use the walking paths or parks for physical activity, or just want to catch a beautiful ND sunset, the Missouri River has a little something to offer everyone."

"We love Texas Road House – relaxed atmosphere, great food, great prices, best dinner rolls around!"
