The Fargo/Moorhead Visitor's Center in Fargo is an absolute must to visit when around. They have the original wood chipper and other memorabilia from the movie Fargo. Even though the movie wasn't actually filmed in Fargo it gave it it's name. Lot of other information about the area and friendly service too.

I love a town that doesn't take itself too seriously. Fargo has the wood shredder from the movie Fargo close to the front door. For me, walking into a visitors center with a big smile on my face is a real plus. Make sure to check the hours when it is open before you go there.
