Fargo is the most populous city in the state of North Dakota, accounting for over 15% of the state population. Kick off your visit on the 1st (Tue): catch a live event at Fargodome, thenexamine the collection at Fargo Air Museum, and then get answers to all your questions at Visit Fargo-Moorhead. Keep things going the next day: contemplate the long history of Fort Abercrombie State Historic Site.

Newark to Fargo is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of train and bus. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Newark to Fargo due to the time zone difference. Plan for a bit cooler temperatures traveling from Newark in April, with highs in Fargo at °F and lows at °F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Wed) to allow enough time to travel to Grand Forks.
