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.

Cute and worth the stop. In addition to the hysterical wood chipper, there are hundreds of pamphlets and information on area Attractions. The girl working was chipper ;-) and genuinely seemed proud to be from the area.

This is likely the best location in Fargo for information, good review, and an understanding of the community. If you need help, go here first. By the way the location itself is an outstanding place to visit.
