Our Visitors Center, the "Grain Elevator", located at exit 348 of Interstate 94 has bushels of information, maps, brochures as well as a gift shop. It is open year round so stop in and talk to our Visitor Center Travel Ambassadors. We provide free wifi, popcorn, and coffee for visitors...And the bathrooms are spick-and-span!

The Fargo-Moorhead Visitors Center is also home to the woodchipper from the movie 'FARGO.' Stop by and have your photo taken with the infamous woodchipper! We provide the (fake) leg and bomber hats to complete the photo op. Be sure to see the Celebrity Walk of Fame outside our visitors center with star signatures and hand & foot prints in cement.

Saw this on a review site as kind of a different thing to do. Visitors center? OK, I loved "Fargo" so when it was said they have the woodchipper from the tv show/movie I thought "oh, what a photo op!" We went in and did just that. There is a socked foot sticking out of the top that makes for... More

Many visitors centers are little more than racks of brochures with a bored volunteer. The folks here actually know things, and if you talk to them, your trip will be optimized. Free popcorn too!

You have to get a picture with the original film wood chipper! They have great ear-flap hats for you to wear (and they sell them too) plus they will take the picture for you (And maybe put you on their website! ) They also have maps and brochures, and festival/fair information that they are glad to share. They are very... More

The F-M Visitors Center provides multiple ways to find out about a great Fargo-Moorhead visit- great personnel, good maps and lots of brochures to use when you are in the area. Ask them for more than one way to enjoy a visit to the Fargo-Moorhead area, and they will do it! I recommended that my relatives stop there on their... More
