World’s Largest Buffalo Monument

Recommendation by Lemi

A significant number of America’s attractions started following a trend when interstate travel became easier. Each state would boast the “World’s Biggest” to lure travelers and boost local business. North Dakota’s own claim to roadside fame is the “World’s Largest Buffalo” statue, christened Dakota Thunder! It’s more than just fodder for your Camera Roll. After the obligatory photo-op, learn all about a time when the buffalo played a pivotal role to survival. The sculpture serves to draw people to the nearby National Buffalo Museum and Frontier Village. Here, recount the lives of the Plains Indians and early European settlers, respectively. Both groups relied on every single part of the bison to provide everything from food to bone tools.
