The Google suggestion was helpful so I found this: www.downtownfargo.com

I, too, am curious about a move to Fargo (from the Northeast). I haven't been to Fargo or North Dakota, but the site I linked mentioned that Fargo is "North of Normal". LOL. I hope I like Fargo if I ever move there. I shall take a flight sometime in the new year when flights are cheaper. Right now it's about $600 or more since it's the holidays. I think I can handle Fargo (compared to Baltimore) considering crime rates are lower (Fargo murder rates less than 10, Baltimore over 300 per year). I haven't explored the website I linked yet but as with any cities, I think it's all generic (they all have their bars, shops, malls, parking lots, etc.). As for places to go, the site I linked should give you a start but it all depends what you like to eat, drink, or see, etc.

Would watching the movie Fargo help get a feel of the vibe in Fargo or not? From what I understand that movie was actually shot in Minneapolis so I'm not sure if it would give the actual vibe in Fargo whereas The Wire pretty much gave the vibe of what Baltimore's vibe is like (a bit exaggerated though for dramatic effect since it's an HBO series).

If I ever do visit then move to Fargo, I just hope it's a good choice.

The movie Fargo is nothing like Fargo, or Minnesota for that matter.

Fargo is a small city and a great place to live IF you have people connections. Being small, community is important and being part of the community makes living there a pleasure.

First, Fargo is a mix of Minnisota liberalism and North Dakota conservatism. The dry Norwegian attitude mixes it all up. On top of that the put a self deprecating sense of humor. For example, the wood chipper is in the Fargo Moorhead welcome center, and they will loan you a leg for a picture. They also have a new chipper outside so in the winter you can pretty much recreate the scene.

The book "How Fargo of You" and "Tales from the Fargo Zone" are worth reading.

The 18 months spent there were some of the best of my life.

I will note I had allergies year round and I thought that was odd.

Cheers

Buy essential oils online as it's cheaper. Ananda Apothecary rocks!

Anyway, I'm curious why Fargo's rentals are affordable? Is it because they lack tenants? I see several nice looking ones on apartments.com in the $500 range and under.

Ummm, it's North Dakota. Do you really need another reason?
