Fargo
Travel Guide

Fargo which includes kayaking or canoeing and a river or creek

This friendly Midwest city has the feel of a fashionable, urban metropolis with art galleries, museums and a historic downtown.

Fargo has a lively wine and art culture, eclectic shops, cafés and restaurants, and an abundance of Midwest history. The colonial settlement at Fargo began where the Northern Pacific Railroad intersected with the Red River. As an early frontier town, Fargo had fertile farming land, making it a popular settlement. In 1876 the population was 600. By 1892 it had grown to a city of over 8,000 people.

Begin your stay with a stroll through historical Fargo, and then tour the city’s unique museums. Admire the restored colonial architecture in the storefronts of the downtown. See a film at the art deco Fargo Theatre and amble through the heritage buildings at North Dakota State University. Step back in time at Bonanzaville, a recreated 19th-century pioneer village. Here, you can view more than 43 historical buildings and 400,000 artifacts about the history of the Red River Valley. The village includes an air museum, tractor museum, antique farm equipment, a model railroad, a full-size train and a car museum. Learn about the history of aviation at the Fargo Air Museum. If you are a New York Yankees fan, head to the Roger Maris Museum and trace the career of the famous New York Yankees baseball player, who was originally from Fargo.

For lovers of culture, Fargo has a lively music and entertainment scene. Enjoy a pub band, a poetry reading at a café, local art exhibitions or contemporary Native American art at the Plains Arts Museum.

Fargo has plenty of attractions available for families. Walk along the Fargo Walk of Fame, see the animals at the Red River Zoo, explore the Planetarium at the Children's Museum, or head to the Newman Outdoor Field to see the Fargo-Moorhead Redhawks play baseball.

Renowned for warmly welcoming visitors, Fargo allows you to explore America’s pioneer history surrounded by all the comforts of a modern metropolis.

"The only thing I would say is it would help to have more signs of what the rules for the pool are. The pool attendants would blow their whistle and scream instructions across the loud pool area and it was not clear what they were screaming."
