The lovely town of Minot, ND was founded by Scandinavian immigrants, so it’s fitting that one of its most prominent features is the Scandinavian Heritage Park. Housing, among other things, a working Finnish sauna, a Danish windmill, and a 27-foot tall Swedish Dala horse, the Park has plenty to see.
