While there are fewer wood-chipper accidents than the Coen brothers may suggest, Fargo does have a lot of Midwest and old Scandanavian charm.

Fargo is an excellent place to retire because it has more cultural opportunities than most other rural Midwest cities. This is due in part to the three different universities in the city which help to provide year round arts and cultural events. There are lots of shows and performances that are put on by the schools as well as by the Fargo-Moorhead Opera and the Fargo-Moorhead Orchestra.

For recreation, the city maintains a number of public parks and there are 6 golf courses including the Fargo Country Club and the Prairiewood Golfcourse. Many of the locals enjoy spending time outdoors with popular pastimes including fishing, duck hunting, cross country skiing, and most of all snowmobiling.


For public transportation in the city, there is MATBUS, which is operated by the Fargo-Moorhead Metro Area Transit Authority.
