  • Christmas on the Prairie. Was fun. Used to have a lot more things going on and were less people there then in the past but still enjoyable.
  • Very interesting historical exhibitions. From cars to planes to tractors. Something of interest for all.
  • They don't advertise the food upstairs in the Event place. Highly recommended going for that. Very nice outdoor exhibits.
  • It was so good.... really enjoyed our time here. Please keep up the great work.
  • Great place to get a taste of the history of our great country. Live performances, actors, ancient planes, tractors, bars, and general stores.

Where to stay in Fargo

Most accommodations in Fargo cluster in the western section of the city, with only a handful sprinkled across the central area. Along Broadway North, you can find a selection of chain hotels offering good access to the city's central business district and the nearby Red River. The area between Rabanus Park and Anderson Park abounds with large budget and mid-range hotels, offering comfortable, affordable rooms and excellent access to the city's zoo. Look just north of this--around the intersection of 13th Avenue South and Highway 81--to choose from a larger selection of motels.
