We go to Fargo at least once a year, and drive through it other times of the year. Located on the border between Minnesota and North Dakota, it's a great spot to stop on several trips. They do have some tourist stuff to do, but they also have a good shopping district and some good restaurants as well.
I went to college in Fargo and I've heard all of the Fargo the movie jokes. Not that the jokes are all that far off, but it's not exactly like that. Not many people travel outside of their insulated cocoon and don't understand why anyone would want anything different.
Hicksville, USA, for want of a better term! Not very nice there - desolate and dusty as well as quite cold! The people are not bad but they seem to think that people like myself who have travelled are from another planet! Very set in their ways and I only hope that they've changed since the early 1980's.
Nothin special about Fargo.
