If you live in/near downtown, keep in mind that the trains run all day/night. Certainly this you might get used to this and it may not be a problem, but it is something to consider. Also, I would recommend not renting a basement or garden level apartment in F/M, as flooding is not a rare event. Also, on occasion very fast heavy rains can result in flooded basements in some areas. Best wishes.

And there is now a quiet zone through all of Fargo moorhead. The engineers are not to blow the whistles unless there is an obstruction on the tracks.

Name few lists of most popular one-day escapes from Fargo/Moorhead. One comment mentions Detroit Lake.

Minnesota lakes country is a big draw; there are numerous options for fishing and boating throughout Becker & Ottertail counties in MN. Tamarac National Wildlife refuge is a great option for hiking and birdwatching. For a big more strenuous hiking or mountain biking, take a look at Itasca State Park, which is at the headwaters of the Mississippi River.
Winnipeg, MB is probably more of a weekend getaway but has many great restaurants and a much more world/cosmopolitan feel. Winnipeg also has numerous festivals at "The Forks"--its riverfront area.

Becker & Ottertail counties are among 10 counties that I (if gets a job) would cover. I know about MN lakes country -- no problem. I am tempted to go to the Boundary Water Canoe area. My relatives own a property at TenMile Lake.

I need to know about the ND side.

Fort Ransom State Park west of Lisbon is quite nice....it is located along the Sheyenne River and is very scenic. It is good for canoeing.

Fort Ransom State Park

Valley city is known as the city of bridges (they go over the Sheyenne).
We enjoy camping at Turtle River State Park west of Grand Forks.

A very nice area is the Turtle Mountains north of Bottineau....(about 4 hours from Fargo) and has a nice lake there. Devils Lake is great for fishing of all kinds and is 1 1/2 hr west of Grand Forks on Hwy 2.

Farther away...for a good weekend....is the Badlands and Medora of southwest ND.
