Actor Josh Duhamel shares his favorite things about North Dakota

Minot native Josh Duhamel comes home to relax and rewind

It’s a long way from the glitz and glitter of Los Angeles to North Dakota – and that’s a good thing.

North Dakota will always be home. It’s real. It’s authentic. It’s where I can find a quiet spot to fish or go mountain biking or golf a round with old friends. I love the open roads, the simplicity of the countryside, the people and the pace. It is the peace I find when I am there that I miss the most.

Last summer, I spent nine days traveling around the state for photos and videos promoting the great things to see and do in North Dakota. I love telling people about my home; about driving to Fargo to hang out with friends downtown and stopping in small towns along the way to tip a beer with friendly locals.

My hometown of Minot is close to Lake Metigoshe and Lake Sakakawea. It has a fun zoo, great restaurants and big events. It was there as a Minot High Magician that I developed a love of sports early on, leading to a stint as quarterback at Minot State. Now it’s fun to follow national powerhouses North Dakota State football and University of North Dakota hockey. And I enjoy golfing Bully Pulpit, The Links of North Dakota and The Vardon in Minot when I am there.

I enjoy sharing my North Dakota with my family. You, too, can experience the things I do when I visit. I encourage you to visit my home state – Legendary North Dakota.

Josh Duhamel is a native of Minot, North Dakota, and a Hollywood actor with more than 30 film and TV credits on his resume. His favorite North Dakota places and things to do are showcased in North Dakota Tourism’s advertising campaign.
