FUN
FACTS

Why is Fargo so flat?
Less than 10,000 years ago, the area
that is now Fargo was 200 feet below
the surface of Lake Agassiz, a huge
inland sea formed at the end of the last
Ice Age... so we're kind of like Atlantis.

When in Fargo, you are
actually visiting three cities
and two states: Fargo and
West Fargo in North Dakota,
and Moorhead in Minnesota.
Pretty neat, huh?

The Red River of the North splits North
Dakota from Minnesota and is one of
only a handful of rivers in North America
that flows north. You can rent a kayak
or canoe and paddle in two states at
once (see pg. 44 for other outdoor
activities in the area).

What's in a name?
Fargo was originally called
Centralia but was renamed after
the Northern Pacific Railway
director, William G. Fargo... and
yep, he's the same guy from the
Wells Fargo Express Company.

Nicknamed the " Silicon Prairie " ,
Fargo has a booming technology
start-up industry and an average
of 10 people moving to the city
every single day.
