Western CVB Executive Directors Travel East
Post Date: Jun 15 2016
The Dickinson Convention & Visitors Bureau and the Williston Convention & Visitors Bureau teamed up together to travel to eastern North Dakota visiting local radio stations to talk about the increased hotel availability, affordable rates, lower vehicle traffic, and new events and attractions in western North Dakota.
Terri Thiel, Executive Director of the Dickinson CVB and Amy Kruger, Executive Director of the Williston CVB shared their stories of how western North Dakota has undergone change, improvement, and new choices for travelers. 
While finding a lodging room may have been a challenge a few years ago due to the energy development, the construction of new hotels is providing the traveler with more options to choose from, lower rates, and upgraded rooms.  Along with the rooms, the new highway construction is also making a trip out west much easier.  Community bypasses, reduced truck traffic and new road surfaces all create an easy drive to the western attractions.
The National Park Service is celebrating their 100th birthday this year, and the Theodore National Park has been named the #5 Place in the World to see in 2016 by the New York Time Travel.  Visitation is up 35% to date, with many visitors expected throughout the summer season.
The Dickinson Museum Center, Fort Union National Historic Site, the Theodore Roosevelt National Park, and many other attractions and historic sites are all open for visitation, along with many events planned throughout the summer in western North Dakota.
