“It’s America’s best kept secret,” said Josh Duhamel of his home state in a recent interview on NBC’s Today Show.

Hollywood actor and North Dakota native Josh Duhamel shares his love of the open roads, smell of fresh hay and the biggest blue skies you have ever seen, right here in North Dakota!

“It’s a long way from the glitz and glitter of Los Angeles to North Dakota – and that’s a good thing. North Dakota will always be home. It’s real. It’s authentic. It’s where I can find a quiet spot to fish or go mountain biking or golf a round with old friends,” write Duhamel on the North Dakota Tourism website. “I love the open roads, the simplicity of the countryside, the people and the pace. It is the peace I find when I am there that I miss the most.”

Last summer, Duhamel spent nine days traveling around the state for photos and videos to promote the great things to see and do in North Dakota.
