Stay near the top things to do in Bismarck at our downtown hotel
When you stay at the Radisson in the heart of downtown Bismarck, it’s easy to explore North Dakota’s capital city. You can browse locally owned boutiques at nearby Kirkwood Mall and attend a concert across the street from the hotel at the historic Belle Mehus Auditorium. Follow up a trade show or sports event at the Bismarck Event Center with a craft beer at a downtown brewery or a burger and blackjack at our on-site bar. If you’re looking for fun things to do with your family, head to Sertoma Park, which is home to eight playgrounds, the Dakota Zoo, and a summer amusement park. Every September since 1973, seven downtown blocks come alive during the city’s annual street fair, which features around 180 craft and food vendors, plus kids’ activities and live music.
