Posted on Aug, 09 2010

RSVP ConnectsU Discover North Dakota series is hosting the Enchanted Highway Tour on September 8th. This one day trip includes a guided tour of the Enchanted Highway and narration provided by local artist Gary Greff. The motorcoach will depart at 10am Mountain Time on September 8th from Dickinson and return at 5:45pm.

The Enchanted Highway extends 32 miles through the southwestern part of North Dakota and is adorned with the world's largest metal sculptures created by artist Gary Greff. In 1991 Greff created the first sculpture, The Tin Family, with the hopes of bringing tourists to the small town of Regent, ND. Since then Greff has created six other sculptures that have been placed along the highway.

In addition to the tour, participants will take part in a service project to help maintain the beauty of the Enchanted Highway by cleaning up the area surrounding the sculptures. Community service is an important part of RSVP ConnectsU's mission. The deadline to register is August 27th. The registration fee is $69 and covers the cost of the motorcoach transportation, the Enchanted Highway guided tour by the artist Gary Greff, picnic lunch, Hettinger County Historical Museum guided tour, the tour director, gratuities and tax.
