Thrillist.com just put together a list of the most UNDERRATED city in every state. And they went with a lot of cities you might not have heard of, but they have great beach scenes, food, or outdoor activities.
Here are some of their more interesting picks that are around us . . .
Duluth, Minnesota . . . a chance to see the Northern Lights and, quote, “monster cinnamon rolls.”
South Dakota… Custer. Beautiful landscape and one of the best food scenes west of Sioux Falls.
And for us in North Dakota…. Devil’s Lake. And this is what Thrillist.com had to say as to why Devil’s Lake is the pick for North Dakota.
Though pretty much anywhere in North Dakota even mildly fun could be considered “underrated,” this lake town in the northeastern part of the state is a scenic, historic gem few have ever heard of. The tiny downtown boasts 20 national register buildings in three square blocks, all built between 1884 and 1915 and brimming with shops and cafes. Outside town, you’ll find some of the most unheralded fishing in the country, where 10-pound pike and mount-worthy walleye are plentiful all summer, and serene ice fishing dominates the landscape in winter. Devil’s Lake is also home to Fort Totten State Historic Site, a reputedly haunted fort with a historic inn where guests regularly report ghost encounters. Go around Halloween, and you’ll get to visit one of the most unique haunted houses in America where the entire fort is turned into a spooky attraction. — Matt Meltzer
