Downtown Minot Excursion: Magic City Discovery Center, April 25

Written by: Erin Beene
Dependents from Minot AFB took off on the Discover Minot Excursion in September to explore the many places that make Minot a worthwhile assignment.

The quarterly Discover Minot Excursion is a fun event put on by the Northern Sentry to help Minot AFB residents explore the city of Minot and get a little taste of why they may not hate it here after-all.


The Excursion includes a bus ride from Minot AFB into Minot and back, lunch, special stops at various shops, recreations and surprises along the way, plus a chance to take a day and explore the community you are a part of in new ways. Previous riders have said that the Discover Minot Excursion is: “…a wonderful way for military members and spouses to get to know Minot and all that it has to offer. And a great way for spouses to meet each other!” Another spouse said, “The spouse tour was a day well spent. I learned about both new and existing offerings in the community.”


While every Excursion tour shows off places around Minot, each one also includes something exclusive to that particular tour. The spring 2023 Excursion’s main draw will be a tour of the much anticipated Magic City Discovery Center! Previous tours have stopped here to view the construction in progress but this will be the first one to get a sneak peek inside the first children’s/ science center in North Dakota! This tour also features a full lunch taste of the new Jamaican Vybz Kitchen!


The cost for the complete tour, bus ride, lunch and so much more is only $18 per person! It is slated to run on Tuesday, April 25 from 9am- 2/2:30 pm. If It’s anything like the last few tours, this will fill up! So grab a friend and sign up for a day of discovery and community!
