You may know the name Fargo thanks to the Coen Brothers and FX’s hit show. If you picture a white tundra full of people dressed in trapper hats talking with goofy
accents, you’re not alone.
People make all sorts of assumptions about Fargo, but almost none of them are true.
ASSUMPTION 1 – THERE’S NOTHING TO DO
Unlike the movie, where people only hang out in dodgy diners and parking garages, the real Fargo has tons to do.
The 230,000-person city has 220 plus local restaurants, 17 craft beverage hotspots, 15 plus museums, semi-professional sports, hundreds of bars, and a boatload of outdoor activities.
ASSUMPTION 2 – IT’S TOO COLD
Contrary to the barren tundra of the film, Fargo is not bitterly cold all year long. The city experiences snowy winters, but from April to October there’s a short-but-sweet spring, hot summer (think 80-degree days), and a gorgeous autumn.
ASSUMPTION 3 – IT’S BEHIND-THE-TIMES
People ask some crazy questions when it comes to this. Does Fargo have electricity? Is there Uber? The answer to all the above is “You betcha”.
And, Fargo will do you one better. It’s the number one choice for tech startups – dubbed the “Silicon Prairie” – and a hub for major industries like healthcare, technology, and manufacturing.
Fargo’s an undiscovered city in the middle of the prairie. Weird. Different. Unexpected.
Forget everything the Coen Brothers and Hulu have taught you. Fargo is not as seen on TV.
