If you want to see something, go back to Minnesota
Fargo and Moorhead, MN are separated by the Red River (one of the few rivers in the States that flows from south to north). Fargo has done nothing to take advantage of the riverfront. Meanwhile, Moorhead is a small comfy town. Lots of trees. A small downtown. And Concordia College. You wouldn't make it a point to drive four hours to see Moorhead. But if you ever find yourself in Fargo wondering what to do with yourself, go ahead and cross the Red River and experience small-town Minnesota.
Shop till you drop at West Acres
If it's shopping you want to do head over to the West Acres Mall - located close to other large retail stores like Target, Walmart, Toys-R-Us, Best Buy and more. You'll find plenty of stores to window shop or spend your hard earned money in.
West Acres Shopping Center also provides free wireless internet access in the Food Court.
There are also 5 courtesy phones inside the mall where you can make free local calls.
Don't forget to stop and check out the Roger Maris Museum. Located in the Southeast Mall, the Museum honors baseball great Roger Maris. Many artifacts are on display. In addition, enjoy a video display in the viewing room, while sitting on authentic Yankee Stadium seats from Roger's era.
Regular Shopping Hours:
10am-9pm Monday-Saturday and Noon - 6pm Sundays.
The Food Court opens at 11am Sundays.
Nearby is the local "Crafter's Mall" where you can find very unique items.
Fargo is the largest town in North Dakota with about 90,000 people. It has a lot of shopping and outdoor activities. Most people here are friendly. Next to Fargo is a smaller town called Moorhead, MN. They are college towns - 3 colleges/univerities in Fargo-Moorhead. There are lots of activities geared to high school and college aged kids.
It's the flattest place I've ever seen. Some places are absolutely flat with no hills whatsoever. Other places are bumps that people here call hills. You need to go about 50 miles east or west to see hills. North of here is just as flat. I don't know about south.
charlize's new Fargo Page
Fargo..a rapidly growing city and pretty much the only recognizable name of North Dakota. NO! People there DO NOT talk like they do in the movie "Fargo" Not even close.
This city is home to North Dakota State University, and in my opinion, a college city. From frequently visiting I found that the majority of people are in the 20's and college students.
Fargo has very little site-seeing. You'll find Fargo to have everything you need as far as tons of shopping, restaurants, nightlife, and theatre. But very little tourist activities.
All around great city to live in :)
