To start off, we need to get to the airport. Luckily, ND Transit Route 70 goes to the airport.

The bus heads south on 7th avenue to Cambridge Road.

From Cambridge Road, the bus turns left on Railroad Avenue. Okay, there hasn't been a train on Railroad Avenue for a long time, but the name stays.

The last stop before Cambridge Municipal Airport.

And we arrive at the general aviation area, where Cambridge Air Tours is located.

And the helicopter is off!

Hello, and welcome to this aerial tour of Cambridge and Lordside. First off, we are passing by Railroad Avenue. The railroad line in the median hasn't been used since 1965, when Daloa Central Railroad abandoned the line.

While we are heading farther north, there is the West Cambridge Elementary School. The current mayor of Daloa came from this school.

The rail line is abruptly broken by the current end of Expressway 30. The E30 grade separated this intersection in 1979, permanently splitting the old railroad line in two. It is planned that an extension of the ND Light Rail will run the route of the old track to relieve congestion on the E30.

Past the highway is the Cambridge Christmas Tree Farm. It has purebred tiny trees so people can get real trees that aren't 3 stories tall.

Now we are heading east to Lordside. The park trail runs in the old path of a stream, before suburban expansion paved over the area.

Next is the Lordside National Laboratory and Lordside Tower. The tower was built in 1926 to celebrate the unification of Illu'a. Today, it is preserved by the laboratory.

Lordside is the newest suburb in the area. The town center is new, but is made to look old. The entire suburb is surrounded by a road called the Lordside Loop, to "Have a sense of community in the area." In my opinion, it's a barrier to the rest of the city.

Now to head south to the Lordside Pivot Farms.

The pivot farms are used to efficiently water crops in this farm. Takes a lot less people than manually watering all the crops.

And that's our tour. Thank you for staying in Cambridge!

Since the next bus is coming in 40 minutes, we decided to take a taxi to go shopping.

us4-16.jpg

Cambridge is turning into a red light district, so we avoided the area.

The taxi headed down Cambridge Road, and then turned left to North Avenue.

us4-17.jpg

The taxi passes by Cambridge High School and Lordside National Laboratory.

us4-18.jpg

We took well over an hour shopping at the stores here.

us4-19.jpg

After we went shopping, a taxi took us to the nearest hotel.

us4-20.jpg

The taxi drives past the Christmas Tree farm to the nearby hotel. I couldn't get a diagonal avenue to turn into one diagonal and one orthogonal one way road.

us4-21.jpg

We arrive at the Best Western Cambridge and checked in before we went to sleep. I forgot to get the nightlight patch when I took the pictures.

 I think the pivot farms are a weird addition to your city. Pivot farms are only used in dry or arid regions and yours is very lush and green. But it is a very nice CJ.
