The Sheyenne River Valley National Scenic Byway, which has won two national awards from AASHTO and America's Byways for leveraging resources and interpretation, is located in the southeastern corner of the state. The tree-lined, rolling hills of this valley are speckled with quaint towns and farmsteads, lending to its American charm. In addition to nature and scenery at its best, archaeology, history, culture, and recreation are all found along this byway, North Dakota's first nationally recognized scenic byway.
