If you know anyone who wants to visit Bismarck, they'll be happy to know they can do so rather cheaply.

The rankings were based on all cities in the midwest with populations of at least 250,000 while also including other "notable cities" that have populations of at least 100,000. Bismarck falls into that latter category.
