There are certian states that I don't think of beaches. Especially in the Midwest, after all, these are not coastal states, but PureWow found a beach in every state.

For North Dakota, I think of the beaches along the Missouri River, even here in Bismarck. On a hot summer day on the river, the many beaches on the river offer some relief for your water legs and it feels good to walk on solid ground. Lake Sakakawea State Park has many beautiful beaches, so does Devils Lake.

Coming in at #1 for the Peace Garden State was Lake Rednick at the Icelandic State Parklocated 5 miles west of Cavalier, ND, on Highway 5, near the U.S./Canadian border. The state park also has cabins for rent and many more activites for individuals and families.

You can see the best beach in every state here.

Who would have ever thought?
