From Dickinson to Fargo, the route follows a portion of I-94, county roads and state highways. The highways east of Bismarck carry very little traffic. Long, straight stretches are the norm. In broad terms, the terrain is a vast, open plain that slopes downward from the Rocky Mountains to the Mississippi River. Local relief is very gentle, with the exception of a few hills across river breaks.
Rugby ND is a town worth going to; the Prairie Village and Museum is good and the Cornerstone Cafe had good food.
It's also 46 miles from the International Peace Garden--another worthy destination.
The map lists a restaurant in Esmond, go for the special! It closes at 2 pm, so get there early.
