North Dakota is "Legendary" and full of city names that are tough to pronounce.

"Ya fer sure, you betcha!" Not only for "out-of-staters" but even some of us locals struggle to say the names of these towns correctly. Most of these are smaller communities but even a few of our bigger cities get mispronounced on occasion.

Now, I'm a lifelong North Dakota resident. Okay, minus two long years, I spent away from this great state when I took a radio gig in Santa Barbara, California.

I have a lot of North Dakota experience. Hunting and fishing trips, road trips, family vacations, and playing sports growing up, I've done hundreds of wedding dances, high school dances, and softball tournaments in my adult years.  I have explored just about every nook and cranny of our great state.

These are "The Top 10 Mispronounced City Names in North Dakota." I hope to teach you something today!
