Fabled and famed in Hollywood’s dark comedy movie, the real city of Fargo, North Dakota has a reputation for being a strong city, resilient amid the tides of annual flooding threats from its precious asset, the Red River of the North. It embodies the spirit of the Great Midwest with its small town atmosphere yet boasting five universities/colleges within the metropolitan area.

Escapewizard.com invites you to experience Fargo, North Dakota on your next vacation using Hector International Airport (FAR) located 3 miles NW of its main business district. You can book your flight today with Escapewizard.com by following this link: (www.escapewizard.com/flight.php). Fargo offers a number of hotels and accommodations for people just like you. Visit Escapewizard.com’s hotel finder at this link (www.escapewizard.com/hotels.php?flag=htl) to reserve your spot in the Red River Valley.

Scandinavian roots lie deeper here than in almost any other of our great 50 states.  Hence, Escapewizard.com emphasizes that you not pass up the unique Hjemkomst (meaning “homecoming” in Norwegian) Center, home to an exact replica of a massive wooden Viking ship discovered in Norway in 1881. In addition, the amazing full-scale 12th century Hopperstad Stave Church on the Center’s grounds may just make you feel like you have stepped off that vessel onto another continent! Uff-dah! Photos of these replicas of history could fool many into thinking you really did go to Europe!

To enjoy the heart of downtown, Escapewizard.com recommends the Fargo Downtown Street Fair, held annually in the comfortable summer month of July. Artists, crafters, food vendors and entertainment make this a very family-friendly event held in the heart of the city’s unique downtown area. While you’re down there, Escapewizard.com highly recommends checking out the Fargo Theatre. It features a vaudeville-era stage and a restored “Mighty Wurlitzer” pipe organ. Classic in every way!

The obvious geographical aspect of this city is the Red River. Serving as a beautiful, natural boundary between North Dakota and Minnesota to the east, it deserves visitors to come float its waters. Imagine telling your friends that you kayaked down the Red to the north and that if you would have continued on, you would have needed a U.S. passport and finally paddled out into an ocean, the Arctic! Need Escapewizard.com recommend a more unique “escape?”

Another excellent attraction is the Fargo Air Museum. This museum houses an entire array of planes from through the history of flight. This museum also has exhibits for children which make it an excellent option for travelers with families.

The land where the Lakota nation, Assiniboine, Cheyenne, Mandan, Hidatsa, Arikara and Chippewa lived still does exist. We all make history every day so be a part of life by clicking the link above to book your next trip to Fargo, North Dakota’s largest city, with EscapeWizard.com. We know that if you are looking for some nature and a sense of adventure, you will not be disappointed.
