On a recent road trip while staying in Fargo we made it a point to see the infamous woodchipper and original script from the movie "Fargo"- one of our all time favorites. What a riot!! The Visitor's Center has a lot of information about the area and the staff is extremely friendly.

My sister and I visited the Visitors Bureau on Thursday, and the staff (Kylie) could not have been more welcoming. She took our picture with THE Woodchipper, and we enjoyed the exhibits and the entire environment. Joining the "Saved the Best for Last" club was definitely worth making ND our last state to visit! Thanks, Fargo!!!

Now that I officially can say I've been in all 50 states ( N. Dakota was my final one), I can also say this is the friendliest visitors center in the USA! Warm, kind, patient staff. A nice surprise awaited me when the staff heard it was my 50th state, but I won't give it away. Wood chipper and original... More

Lots of good information, shopping, and a scene from the movie "Fargo" make a stop at the Fargo Visitors Centera must. Most of all, the Walk of Fame surrounding the interesting old grainery buidling gives you a look at all the celebrities that have visited there from Chuch Yeager, Radar O'Reilly to Bert & Ernie. Definitely worth a stop on... More

Love the link to the "Fargo"cult of which we are fans. This visitor center was like a coffee shop atmosphere. Small group tables, library like set up of brochures and information with staff on side just like at library. Most visitor centers are sterile. Leave it to Fargo to be different. Tons of info and very helpful staff. And despite... More

Rare to be able to eulogise about outstanding customer service, but here Donna merits such praise. Friendly, informative and enthusiastic about her job she made our visit a delight. Presenting us with the certificate to record the completion of our 50th State was an added surprise and bonus. The whole wood chipper scene from The film Fargo added to an... More

We stopped in after another pleasant visit to the Red River Zoo. The woodchipper is great and there is a ton of great travel information for the local community as well as ND and MN.
