Minot, pronounced "MYNOT", is located in northwestern North Dakota in Ward County about 60 miles south of the Canadian border.

Minot was settled in 1885 as the Great Northern Railway advanced across the prairie. Today Minot is northwest North Dakota's center of agribusiness, commerce and industry, finance, transportation, health care, education and recreation. Minot Air Force Base, activated in 1957 and home of the 5th Bomb Wing and the 91st Space Wing, is one of the area's largest employers.

For those seeking a post-secondary education, the city is home to Minot State University.

Local attractions include the 2.5-mile Riverwalk of Minot which winds its way past the Eastwood Park National Historic District, Pioneer Village and Museum and Planet Pizza, the state's largest family entertainment center.

One of the highlights of the fall season is "Norsk Hostfest", a 5-night, 4-day celebration that is the nation's largest Scandinavian Festival. Held during early October.
