Our Visitors Center, the "Grain Elevator", located at exit 348 of Interstate 94 has bushels of information, maps, brochures as well as a gift shop. It is open year round so stop in and talk to our Visitor Center Travel Ambassadors. We provide free wifi, popcorn, and coffee for visitors...And the bathrooms are spick-and-span! The Fargo-Moorhead Visitors Center is also home to the woodchipper from the movie 'FARGO.' Stop by and have your photo taken with the infamous woodchipper! We provide the (fake) leg and bomber hats to complete the photo op. Be sure to see the Celebrity Walk of Fame outside our visitors center with star signatures and hand & foot prints in cement.

This is a cute little visitor's center and especially interesting if you're a fan of the movie Fargo. There are some props and good photo opportunities related to it. It's super clean and the staff was friendly and happy to answer any questions.

This is a great visitors center. We came for the wood chipper. We came about 15 mins before closing. The gentleman working was great. He took our picture and offered us hats. The walk of fame was a great surprise.
