In Fargo, there are so many to choose from! Downtown Fargo is such a fun place to visit. Of course, I expect to see lots of #lifeinFM photos in from of the iconic Fargo Theater marquee! Nearby is the new Broadway Square, and that’s bound to become a go-to place for many of the Fargo population. Island Park has been a shady retreat in summer for many generations of Fargo residents. There are so many great places around here! Museums, parks, restaurants… life in Fargo definitely doesn’t lack places to love.
Maybe your favorite #lifeinFM place is one of the many pieces of public art. Downtown Fargo is home to more beautiful murals every day. Find a guide to all the area murals on Visit Fargo-Moorhead’s website, and stop by one for your #lifeinFM family-friendly photo op!
Fargo, Moorhead, and West Fargo are home to 175 public parks covering more than 3,000 acres, with 99 miles of biking and hiking trails within each state. Are any of these your favorite places? And looking out a little further, both the state of North Dakota and Minnesota have a large population of beautiful parks to explore and an endless number of exciting road trips just down-or up-the interstate, within just a few hours’ drive of the city of Fargo.
The FM Visitors Center is important to our community as a welcoming place for people relocating to the Fargo Moorhead area. The grain elevator design draws attention to the story of this area’s agricultural roots. Check out our #lifeinFM photo of Allen at the wood chipper! Have you ever seen their Celebrity Walk of Fame? The have handprints from a quirky collection of celebrities, including Jesse Ventura, Dr. Ruth Westheimer, Neil Diamond, and more.
Kids love the Shadow Wood Splash Pad in West Fargo. What a great free place to take the kids during these hot summer days. Try to keep the ink on the #lifeinFM sign from running! In addition to the Splash Pad, there’s a playground, a basketball court, walking trails, and much more for your child.
Another kid favorite is the Red River Zoo! They have lots of exotic and native animals from areas around the world with similar climates to the Red River Valley. Maybe you could take your #lifeinFM photo in front of the wolves or the eagles?
Have you checked out the Fargo Air Museum? Two hangers near the airport filled with aircraft displays, ranging from a Wright Brothers’ flyer to the MQ-1 Predator unmanned aircraft. Perhaps you’d want to take your #lifeinFM photo in front of the P-51 D Mustang, perhaps the best-known fighter of World War II.
How about the classic old Northern Pacific Depot on Main Ave? The NP passenger depot was built in 1898 based on a design by Cass Gilbert. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.
Lindenwood Park has got to be on the list of favorite places for any member of the Fargo/Moorhead population who loves the outdoors! It’s the largest multi-use park in the Fargo area with five picnic shelters, a beautifully landscaped campground, bike & kayak rentals, and a fully adaptive playground for people of all abilities. Summer and winter, might this be your favorite #lifeinFM outdoor place?
Hector International Airport is the busiest airport in North Dakota, with service from five commercial airlines. Maybe you associate Hector with fun family trips? Sounds like a fun #lifeinFM place to me!
