Travel Tips for Fargo

It's not as cold as you think....

by bdwoot

It's not as cold as you think. Dress in layers, and remember that dry cold is a lot more tolerable than humid cold. In the summer, it is a short trip to the Minnesota lake district. In the winter, grab your skates as there are skating areas at all the elementary schools outside. I just moved back after a hiatus of eight years living elsewhere. Fargo has more to do than any city in the US for its population. There is an wonderful art museum, a 25000 seat indoor arena, three universities, and a arts movie theater. And it only takes ten minutes to cross town.

SS Ruby Boat Tour -

by my2kids

Handicapped people can also ride the the boat - both the boat and boat ramp are easily accessible.

S.S. Ruby is a custom designed, Coast Guard inspected, 18-passenger pontoon tour boat that operates on the Red during weekends as weather and river conditions permit. River Keepers owns the pontoon, and American Sports Outfitters lends operational support. S.S. Ruby operators are U.S. Coast Guard licensed. Passengers board the pontoon under the First Avenue North Bridge adjacent to the Hjemkomst Center.

S.S. Ruby tours several miles of the Red River, while a knowledgeable captain or deckhand shares stories of the history, geography and wildlife that live in and along the River. Learn about Moorhead's old saloon district, an old swivel bridge, birds, deer, different trees and plants, storm drain outlets, rubble from the turn of the century downtown Fargo fire and more. The ride is not only recreational, but also educational.

Beginning May 17, tours run from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday through Sunday. The schedule is subject to change based upon weather and river conditions.

Passengers are free to bring food and beverages aboard S.S. Ruby. Group rates are available. The entire boat may also be reserved by the hour.

To make reservations, for current charges, or for more information, call 701-581-RUBY (7829).

Spend a lazy afternoon on the Red.

Fargo Dome Events -

by my2kids

You never know what might be happening at the Fargo Dome - could be a local NDSU Bison football game, or a concert, maybe some sort of local event like RibFest.

If you are traveling to the Fargo - Moorhead area just check out the dome's web site to make sure you're not missing out on anything fun.

Fargo (The Town, Not the Movie!)

by where2next

As part of my midwest swing and nearing goal of seeing all 48 continental states, I arrived to Fargo from Minneapolis at around 1 a.m. I had hoped to get her by midnight, though stopped on my way out of Minneapolis for some Swedish food. When I arrived to the theater, the girl and guy at the counter were very friendly, and said that I could go into the movie for free. Small town hospitality! and no, the folks their don't sound anything like the actors in the movie! For inside pictures please see the travelogue.

The next day I stopped at the mall as Roger Maris's memorabilia was on display here. The mall was as big as any around, and actually had some nice amenities such as a TV and aquarium that not too many malls have. Now all the need is a fridge full of food and things would be all set!

This was my favorite item from Roger's display - a Gold Glove. After seeing the museum, it was off to South Dakota and the Vermillion National Music Museum which I had hoped to see on a prior trip, though missed.
