North Dakota

More than 90% of North Dakota land is planted in crops. Most of the nation's cereal grains come from the Flickertail State and most of its sugar beets as well. This is Great Plains territory, located at the geographic center of North America and covered in vast grasslands where native trees are few and far between.

Jobs in North Dakota have traditionally outnumbered those willing to take them. In recent years an oil boom in the western part of the state has exacerbated the economic imbalance and sent land pries out of sight around Williston. Oil has been extracted from the shale of the Bakken Formation here since the 1950s but advances in technology with hydraulic fracturing have now made access to the estimated four billion gallons of crude economically feasible. Good news for land owners, not land buyers.

North Dakota banks fewer tourism dollars than any other state. That means plenty of folks are missing out on Lake Sakakawea, the third largest man-made lake in the country, on the Missouri River and the Theodore Roosevelt National Park in the Dakota Badlands. The future President came to North Dakota as a young man to rebuild his health after the near-simultaneous deaths of his wife and mother.

The clean air and rugged outdoor lifestyle that attracted Teddy Roosevelt in the 1880s is still in evidence in North Dakota today. There are more golf courses per capita here than in any other state and the coulees and buttes of the grasslands attract energetic hikers and horseback riders. Hunters can scout for land near the state's three national wildlife refuges and endless fields of grain that attract birds.
