Fargo offers us an opportunity to get away for a weekend. It is pretty quiet.
Pretty bad that a city of 70,000 can afford the Fargodome (an enclosed football stadium), whereas Winnipeg at nine times bigger only has an aging outdoor stadium.
Fargo has a new zoo that opened in 1999. We will have to tour it on our next visit.
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.
Fondest memory: 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.
