Best for Last Club

If you’re on a quest to visit all 50 states, we highly encourage you to save North Dakota for last. Why do you ask? For selfish reasons, really. We want to celebrate with you.

We’ve created an official club, especially for people who are visiting all 50 states and managed to save the best state (North Dakota) for last, and we want you to join the club.

What’s the club all about?

Travel Ambassadors at the Fargo-Moorhead Visitors Center noticed a trend in travelers looking to travel all 50 states. North Dakota was often the last to be checked off their list! So, from what one might say is an embarrassing fact, the Best for Last Club was born.

Since 2013, the Best for Last Club has become a hit with travelers looking for the best way to visit all 50 states. Shoot, people have started to purposely “save” their visit to North Dakota for last or changed their travel plans to visit the Fargo-Moorhead Visitors Center and be welcomed into the Best for Last Club.

What do I get for joining the club?

  • Commemorative Best for Last t-shirt
  • An official certificate
  • Occasional round of applause from staffers.

How do I join the club?

Stop by the Fargo-Moorhead Visitors Center and talk to one of the Travel Ambassadors!

You can also join our Best for Last Club Facebook group to connect with other travelers who finished their 50-state journey in ND!

Fun facts about the club:

  • The club has over 4,200 members (and it grows every week)
  • Youngest member: 9 years old
  • Oldest member: 99 years old
  • At least one person in the club has done all 50 states TWICE (saved North Dakota for last both times)!


Can I join the club if this is my last state in the lower 48 (or my second-to-last state)?

Unfortunately, you can only become an official club member if North Dakota is your 50th and final state. That being said, we’d love to welcome you to Fargo and give you tips on what to see while you’re here!

Can I buy the t-shirt if I’m not a club member?

Sorry, t-shirts are only for club members.

What if North Dakota was my 50th State, but I didn’t make it to Fargo or the Visitors Center on my trip? Can I still join the club?

Fill out this form, and we’ll add you to the list, plus send you the official Best for Last Club t-shirt.
