Choose a Food & Culture Walking Tour
Fargo rises from the prairie, marking the eastern border of North Dakota with its organized sprawl and continually growing boundaries.
You may recognize it from the 1996 film, Fargo, featuring thick Midwestern accents and a gruesome woodchipper murder scene (we have the original on display!), or from the modern, adapted TV series written by the film’s original producers.
While the accents are pretty accurate, we swear the people are much nicer. In real life, complete strangers wave as you pass them on the highway and you’ll be hard-pressed to walk downtown without getting smiles or nods from passersby. People give out welcoming hugs and kind words like they’re going out of style.
Things to do in Fargo
Beyond the “North Dakota nice” residents, you’ll also find plenty of things to do and places to visit in Fargo -- from the Red River Zoo and the Old West-style town of Bonanzaville USA to the Fargo Air Museum and iconic Fargo Theatre (where each of our tours start), plus much more.
The main Fargo events center, the Fargodome, holds shows as huge as Elton John and Justin Timberlake (as well as an annual marathon run), while smaller venues host live music events, open mics, and comedy nights.
A large shopping mall, mid-sized airport, minor league baseball team, and ND’s largest college, North Dakota State University, also add to its draw.
Why Fargo deserves to be discovered
Fargo is a hidden gem among U.S. cities, ranking 15th out of the top 100 most-livable cities in the nation. While it supplies all the amenities of big-city living (except an IKEA), it maintains the friendly feel of a true North Dakotan small town.
Stretching under the great expanse of the ND sky, you don’t have to go far for incredible sunsets, rolling prairie as far as you can see, and unimpaired views of the stars.
The flat nature of the Red River Valley where Fargo sits has only one small drawback -- few trees and almost no hills to block the wind. So while Chicago may have cornered the nickname “Windy City”, locals agree we should put a bid in for “Windier City”.
