The North Dakota Department of Commerce announced today that Commerce Tourism and Marketing released a few fun ways to celebrate 701 Day on July 1.

North Dakota is one of 12 states with only one area code, which makes July 1 a day of celebration for everything that makes North Dakota uniquely legendary.

“We’re excited to share these new and engaging options with locals, visitors, and community partners,” Commerce Tourism and Marketing Director Sara Otte Coleman said. “We hope these new features will be a fun way to celebrate North Dakota on the day that reflects our area code.”  

To celebrate 701 Day, Commerce Tourism and Marketing created newly themed GIFs and digital stickers that are available through the GIF libraries on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and TikTok. The digital stickers and GIFs can be found by searching for North Dakota in the platform’s GIF library. 

In addition to the GIF’s, there will be new virtual postcards that showcase the state’s beautiful landscapes, outdoor adventures, and community experiences. The personalized postcards can be shared with anyone across the world by simply choosing a photo from the provided gallery, and writing a note, that will then be delivered to the recipients’ inbox or via social media. The photo gallery includes winning photographs from a recent virtual postcard social contest. The virtual postcards will be available on July 1.

Social media users are also encouraged to use #Funin701 to join and promote conversation about 701 Day.
