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.

Lovely staff and lots of information. They have the woodchipper from the movie FARGO there and there are the footprints of many famous people on a walk outside the center.

It was a treat to see the wood chipper from “Fargo”. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The amount of brochures was overwhelming but the staff made sure to find you what you were looking for and willing to answer any questions.
