Trip Report: Fargo!

Jump to last reply

Yes, Fargo. I am a Boston-based consultant and just spent a week in Fargo, North Dakota. If you've seen the movie, then you have a preconception of Fargo. It is only partially accurate.

I flew into Fargo on jet service, connecting through Minneapolis. I was surprised that Fargo is a thriving metropolis, growing, with 3 (or maybe 4??) college/universities in the area.

The Ramada on the west side of Fargo was where I stayed, and was a new, very well appointed hotel with excellent amenities and suites.

People were great, although they had funny accents. I can finally say that about someone else. I always get crap for my accent.

I did most of my work in downtown Fargo, which left alot of be desired. Downtown appears like it was once vibrant, but it is evident that most of the businesses have moved to the outskirts.

The only disappointment were the restaurants. Lots and lots of chain restaurants, and the ones that weren't were all sports pubs. I guess you have to expect it in a college town.

All in all, not a bad little town. My commute back to the airport was a whole 20 minutes, and the cab driver kept telling me how bad the traffic was that day.
