Let's face it, we don't get a lot of respect in North Dakota.  Yes, I know how to spell it correctly.  It's funny how many people I see on social media who have no clue how even to spell the name of our state, let alone our cities.

In fact, I was telling a friend who is not from North Dakota that some people in the United States think North Dakota is a part of Canada.  No lie.  When I lived in California for a while, that came up several times from the brilliant people in Hollyweird.  You know who you are.

Some get misspelled more than others.  That got me thinking about putting together a top 10 list of the most misspelled cities in North Dakota.

Many of the included towns jump out at the casual observer as popular summer-rental spots--the Ozarks' Branson, Missouri, or Arizona's Lake Havasu--it might surprise you to dive deeper into some quality-of-life offerings beyond the beach and vacation homes. You'll likely pick up some knowledge from a wide range of Americana: one of the last remaining 1950s-style drive-ins in the Midwest; a Florida town that started as a Civil War veteran retirement area; an island boasting some of the country's top public schools and wealth-earners right in the middle of a lake between Seattle and Bellevue; and even a California town containing much more than Johnny Cash's prison blues.
