North Dakota: International Peace Garden
Trails and lush gardens along the U.S.-Canada border celebrate peace between the two nations. The 2,300-acre garden, about 110 miles northeast of Minot, is half in the U.S. and half in Canada. In summer, the International Peace Garden gets big splashes of color from perennials and annuals; for the best blooms, visit in July or August. For visitors year-round, a new Interpretive Center offers a restaurant, gift shop and conservatory with 3,000 cacti. Guided tours of the gardens are available by reservation.
