Speaking of discoveries, the thriving arts and culture scene gives residents and visitors alike something new to take in, whether that’s an art exhibit, museum, or performance at the Mayo Civic Center.
Locals agree Fargo is somewhere “north of normal.” And they’re proud of it. For some, that makes retiring in this Minnesota city instantly intriguing. Among the less normal things you can experience in Fargo, MN are: Sipping a cold beverage in an igloo atop a rooftop bar in the dead of winter. Finding a herd of painted buffalo scattered throughout the city. The unexpectedly huge skateboarding scene. A 15-foot Dilly Bar statue at a Dairy Queen in Moorhead. And, yeah. North of normal is about right.
