Things To Do In MinotThe city of Minot, North Dakota, is known as “Magic City” due to its extremely fast growth during the construction of the Great Northern Railway in the late 1880s. These days, it’s magic because of its exciting arts community – Minot boasts an art museum, a symphony orchestra, an opera community, a city band, several dance and theatre troops and a youth/punk concert organization, the AMP. Between the arts scene and Minot’s great parks, there is no shortage of fun things to do during your stay.
