It’s easy to choose to just stay on the highway when you are on vacation. Many times we cruise right by some real treasures because we are in a hurry to get somewhere else. My wife and I are on a motorcycle trip from Minnesota to British Columbia down the Pacific coast to Oregon and back to Minnesota. We always stop at the first visitor center when we cross into a new state. They are generally a wealth of information and you learn about things you may be interested in along your route. We will spend three days going across North Dakota because there is so much to see and we will stop often to take it all in.
At the Fargo / Moorhead visitor center we found our first treasure in North Dakota. The wood chipper from the movie Fargo is in the lobby. If you don’t know about the wood chipper you may want to check it out.
