In addition to the famous woodchipper (be sure to have your photo taken and they will also loan you a "hat") there is an interesting Walk of Fame outside that is worth a look. Helpful and friendly staff.

You can't be a tourist without visiting the Fargo visitor center. It is a physically beautiful bit of architecture and there is a wealth of information about the Fargo-Moorhead City area. But most of all, the famous woodchipper.

ND was our 50th State and it was a complete surprise they were ready to help us celebrate! We’re glad we saved North Dakota for last and we’re glad we stopped in Fargo.

This place is fun to stop by when you get into town. They have the authentic woodchipper from the movie "Fargo" in the lobby, autographed. Nice souvenirs like Fargo shirts and mugs. The ONLY place we could find Fargo souvenirs. The staff was very friendly.
