One Day in Fargo, ND - Travel Itinerary

At first glance (or Google search), Fargo might not necessarily knock your socks off. It’s a fairly quiet, unassuming town that someone might just drive through without stopping if they didn’t know any better. But we’re here to tell you… Don’t make that mistake! Fargo is a surprisingly diverse city with deep Scandinavian roots that has so much more to offer than just being the namesake of the 1990’s comedy crime thriller movie. The food is excellent, the sites are , and the people… Well, the people are absolute treasures. We only had one day to explore the city, so we crammed in as much as we possibly could and were able to put together what we think is the perfect day in Fargo.

  • Twenty Below Coffee Co. (14 Roberts St N) - Where we went

  • Babb's Coffee House (604 Main Ave)

  • Atomic Coffee (222 Broadway N #100)

9:30 am: eBike Tour with Nature of the North (814 Center Ave Suite 3)

Nature of the North is best described as an outdoor concierge. Their goal is to connect the Fargo community with nature. They do this by hosting outdoor centric events, workshops, and gatherings year round. That’s right, they don’t let the cold stop them! We happened to visit during the summer, so it was the perfect opportunity to rent some eBikes and get a tour of the area! While their eBike rentals and tours schedule are VERY limited we highly recommend giving them a call and seeing what availability they have. We learned about and saw so much more of Fargo than we ever could have on our own!

12:30 pm: Lunch

  • Brew Bird (30 N University Dr) - Where we went

Brew Bird is the go-to lunch spot in Fargo! Housed in a retro tow truck station, they’re cooking up some of the best fried chicken in the state! Their focus is on bringing classic items but kicking it up a notch by using the freshest, quality ingredients, throwing in some flavor twists, and not taking any short-cuts. And guess what?! It’s all gluten free. . .but you would never know it!

  • Cracked Pepper (4955 17th Ave S #124)

  • JL Beers (518 1st Ave N)
