Where Community Comes Together
When weekends aren’t spent exploring the outdoors, families can enjoy other hands-on learning adventures including bowling, swimming, and the Chahinkapa Zoo. An added bonus; they won’t break the bank either. In addition, SoVal has a variety of great recreation options for kids—from hockey to baseball to swimming. Kids will embrace their imaginations and iPads will become a thing of the past (or at least until they get home).
No matter your age, Southern Valley has the resources and support you need to grow your family. But don’t just take our word for it, come find out for yourself (but don’t be selfish, bring your friends and family too).
Find your perfect outdoor activity right here in the Southern Valley’s backyard. Test your endurance hiking, biking, or ATV-ing through the Sheyenne Grasslands or enjoy a stroll along Lake Elsie on your lunch break. Hunting and fishing can be an everyday endeavor. No matter your level of experience, Southern Valley will bring out the outdoor adventurer in you. There are no limitations on what the area has to offer.
In Southern Valley, we encourage everyone to get up and get out every day. Sometimes that’s to work, sometimes to the lakes, and sometimes to one of the 16 (and growing) community parks that span the area. That’s right – we preach a working hard and playing harder kind of living.
So go take advantage of all the room you have to play.
Winery’s, golfing, casino and sports betting… all within short distance and year round? Yes. Yes. And, yes.
Date nights, happy hours and girl’s weekends, Southern Valley has the hook-up when it comes to adult fun. With big city amenities and a strong small-town spirit, when it comes to food, adventure and entertainment, there’s no place quite like SoVal.
We couldn’t possibly list all the food, wine, and entertainment that happens year-round around here, but we’ve compiled some of our favorite go-to spots. So mark your calendars, collect your friends and family, and come enjoy what this area has to offer!
Dinner is usually a staple of “date night” or a much-needed night off of cooking for the fam, but the restaurant you go to with that special someone doesn’t have to feel routine. Some of the best restaurants you’ll find here aren’t chains, and we’re pretty proud of that.
Treat yourselves and head to any of the spots below to guarantee a memorable (and tasty) outing.
