Change things up with these side-trips from Fargo: Grand Forks (University of North Dakota, Splasher's of the South Seas, & more), Ronald Reagan Minuteman Missile State Historic Site (in Cooperstown) and Jamestown (Frontier Village & National Buffalo Museum). There's lots more to do: learn more about the world around you at Red River Zoo, buy something for everyone on your list at West Acres Shopping Center, steep yourself in history at Bonanzaville USA, and admire the masterpieces at Plains Art Museum.
