“Worth the extra 32 mile side trip”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

We were returning eastward across the state of North Dakota from Yellowstone and heard about the Enchanted Highway. While only a handful of enormous art structures span a 32 mile stretch of highway, they are interesting, adorable, and quite amazing pieces made or recycled materials. What they don't tell you is that the first couple structures are right off I-94 and the rest are near the end, though it is still worth the drive. The little town at the end of the Enchanted Highway offers a couple little shops where you can buy souvenirs and ice cream. I must note that you should return to I-94 via the Enchanted Highway and don't take the route eastward and back north since those roads are not in very good shape, there is nothing of interest to see along the way, and it really doesn't save much time. There is definitely not much to see or do while traveling across the state of North Dakota, but the Enchanted Highway is not to be missed!

“An interesting display of metal art sculptures”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

6-8 huge metal sculptures from I-94 (Gladstone exit) about 30 miles south to Regent ND. I wish it would have been a loop, going back toward the interstate, but quite interesting tour of SW ND. Worth the extra time/miles if you aren't trying to make it to Fargo soon!

“Fun drive - amazing sculptures.”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

Off 94, 32 mile drive one way - 8 sculptures currently along the drive. Areas to pull off and take pictures at each location. 4 more in the works. Be sure to stop at Enchanted Hwy Gift Shop in Regent - you might meet the artist, Gary Greff. If not, be sure to enjoy an ice cream cone! No charge, but donations are appreciated. You can do so at each sculpture or at most locations in town.

“A great find in the grasslands of North Dakota”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

Out on the prairie along a county highway off I-94 exit 72 are these amazing metal sculptures depicting flying geese, a pheasant family, a tin family and more. Well worth the drive, unlike anything you'll see see anywhere, and all done by one guy. Just amazing.

“A Short Deviation for a Lot of Pleasure”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

Driving from Williston, ND to Rapid City, SD can be somewhat boring and one becomes quickly "scenery saturated" along Hwy 85. We took two deviations along the route, both of which were very worthwhile in our opinion. The jog over to Gladstone to catch the Enchanted Highway was definitely worth the time. The second deviation was in South Dakota - taking US 20 to Reva and then going south through the "mud butte" territory down to Sturgis, SD.
