Nestled on the banks of the meandering Sheyenne River, Valley City is home to no less than 11 historic bridges – including the ornate, wooden Valley City State University Footbridge and the Highline Bridge. The latter is one of the USA’s highest single track rail bridges and is a National Civil Engineering Landmark. Valley City is therefore affectionately known as ‘City of Bridges’. For views across town head to Medicine Wheel Park, home to Native American burial grounds and two solar calendars, and for a scenic drive through Valley City and the surrounding areas, drive down the Sheyenne River Valley National Scenic Byway. Stretching 63 miles from Baldhill Dam to Lisbon, it was named one of the best Fall Color Getaways in the region by Midwest Living Magazine.
