Our second stop on our #EpicUSroadtrip brought us to Fargo, North Dakota. We only had 24 hours to explore so we had to hit the ground running. We had our eyes & tongues set on visiting several of the breweries, catching a local Redhawks baseball game, and visiting the iconic Fargo theater.
There is no shortage of breweries in Fargo, North Dakota. We visited several on our 24-hour visit to Fargo, North Dakota. We choose to visit the breweries that were in walking distance of where we were staying, Hotel Donaldson. This way we could indulge in several beers and not have to worry about driving.
- Drekker Brewery | 630 1st Ave N, Suite 6, Fargo, ND
- JL Beers | 518 1st Avenue North, Fargo, ND
- Fargo Brewing Company | 610 North University Drive, Fargo, ND
We scheduled our night in Fargo to coincide with a home-game for the Fargo-Moorehead Redhawks. Adam and I love baseball, it’s our favorite sport. There is something about being outside on a summer evening, enjoying a cold beer and cheering for the home team. For only $5 you can get a ticket to the game, $5 for a beer, and another $5 for snacks.
The Redhawks play at the Newman Outdoor stadium which is located at 1515 15th Ave Fargo. Parking is $3, but there is ample of street parking if you get there early.
Driving in downtown Fargo at night the Fargo Theatre sign will catch your eye. This iconic sign is one of many of Fargo’s retro signs that line the streets. The Fargo Theatre was built in 1926 and recently restored and still plays independent & foreign films, concerts, and plays. Adam had time in our schedule to catch a matinee, which was also budget friendly at $ 6.75.
If you don’t have time to catch a show, at least head down Broadway to capture the Fargo Theatre sign at night. The Fargo Theater is located at 314 Broadway, 2 blocks from the Hotel Donaldson in downtown Fargo. There is street parking available.
Make sure to check out the schedule online, and to save time book your tickets online too.
Where to stay in Fargo
Even though our time was short in Fargo we tried to make the most of it. Basing ourselves in downtown Fargo made it so much easier. We stayed at the Hotel Donaldson, also home to one of the top restaurants in Fargo, the Hodo.
