North Dakota is one of the least populated states in the USA. The state capital is Bismarck and the largest city in the state is Fargo.

Both North and South Dakota were admitted to the Union on November 2 1889, but rivalry between the two new states presented the dilemma of which was to be admitted first. The then Secretary of State James G. Blaine was told to shuffle the papers and obscure from the President which he was signing first and the actual order went unrecorded. However, since North Dakota alphabetically appears before South Dakota, its proclamation was published first in the Statutes At Large. Since that day, it has become common to list the Dakotas alphabetically and thus North Dakota is usually listed as the 39th state. However, no one will actually know which of the Dakotas was admitted first.
North Dakota has the lowest percentage of non-religious people of any state, and it also has the most churches per capita of any state. During the 1880s, Fargo became the “divorce capital” of the Midwest, due to its very lenient divorce laws. Strange how things change.

Often a bleak place with stunning landscapes and wilderness areas to explore, huge areas of North Dakota remain completely untouched by civilisation. Consequently, it’s a perfect place to escape the modern world.

So North Dakota nightlife is still in its infancy. It has not developed to the same extent as many other states, and perhaps that’s a good thing.

Evenings out are very much a take your pick of what you can find. But what you do find does the state credit.
