Grab your best friends and get away together for some quality time in Fargo.

Even in winter, Fargo and its sister cities Moorhead and West Fargo have tons of things to do on a girls weekend. Most of our recommendations keep you indoors or have you quickly walking from shop to shop to minimize the time you spend outside.

This girls getaway spans from Friday night through Sunday afternoon. Mix and match as you see fit to suit your styles.

Day 1

Evening

Mezzaluna

This upscale eatery is right in the heart of Downtown Fargo and is perfect for a girls night out. Enjoy carefully crafted cocktails or something off of their extensive wine list alongside their seasonal menus.

309 Roberts St N, Fargo | (701) 364-9479

Live Music

Live music can be found all over Downtown Fargo, but some of the best places to find local musicians is right down the alley from Mezzaluna.

Start at the local Irish pub Dempsey’s Public House which has local talent on the main floor most nights as well as their upstairs space The Aquarium which hosts touring indie artists. Right down the street, you and your girl gang can stop by the HoDo Lounge for a more low-key experience and some more yummy cocktails.

If your group would rather take in some comedy, head to The Cellar in Front Street Taproom’s basement for local and traveling comedy acts.

Day 2

Morning

Bloody Mary’s at Pounds

What better way to start your first full day in Fargo than the impressive Bloody Mary and Mimosa Bars at Pounds with a massive selection of build-your-own ingredients.

You can pile veggies, pizza rolls, grilled cheese sandwiches, sausage, shrimp, chicken strips, cheese, and more into your glass, so your drink doubles as your meal (or you can order food alongside it).

612 1st Ave N, Fargo | (701) 478-1234

Shopping along Broadway

It’s definitely worth wandering up Downtown Fargo’s main drag, Broadway, and stopping in the multitude of shops along the way.

Ones to note for cute gifts and girls trip souvenirs are STABO for Scandinavian-inspired goods, O’Day Cache for jewelry and great gift items, Unglued for things all made by local artists, and Zandbroz Variety for everything from books to scented soaps to coffee mugs to wrapping paper.

There are also tons of clothing shops downtown as well, swing into Kindred People, Others, or KITTSONA for some great stylish and comfy finds.

Broadway N, Fargo

Afternoon

Wasabi

After a big morning of shopping, take a break and warm up at Wasabi Sushi Bar. What is arguably the best sushi spot in town, Wasabi serves modern and innovative sushi varieties.

Plus, they’re connected to Poke Bowl so the gals can have a choice for either sushi or a poke bowl.

560 2nd Ave N, Fargo | (701) 478-2442

Hunt down all of the Murals

Downtown Fargo is full of art (even the electrical boxes and benches!), use this handy map and find each of the murals throughout the downtown area and get some fun Insta pics to share.

Downtown Fargo

Wild Terra

After the show, head over to the first urban cidery in the state – Wild Terra. They serve regional craft ciders as well as their own varieties (some made from North Dakota apples!).

If you’ve worked up an appetite, order small plates from their plant-based menu with great gluten-free and vegan options. Take your beverages upstairs to the comfy leather couches and relax and chat.

6 12th St N, Fargo | (701) 639-6273

Evening

Art night at Creatively Uncorked

From there (or maybe after a small break in your hotel), grab an Uber and head to Creatively Uncorked in West Fargo for a fun paint night. Most events start at 7:00 p.m. and last until 9:00 p.m. Check their website ahead of time to sign-up and see what you’ll be painting.

715 13th Ave E, #101, West Fargo | (218) 422-5753

Maxwells

Maxwell’s is a great place to unwind after the big day and have some good food and maybe another glass of wine. This casual fine dining spot has a cozy vibe with a variety of American food.

We recommend the Lobster Fettuccine and the Berry Swirl Cheesecake for dessert.

1380 9th St E, West Fargo | (701) 277-9463

Day 3

Morning and early afternoon

Spa Morning at Hair Success

For your final girls day in Fargo, we recommend you get pampered at Hair Success. Choose one of their packages like their Half-Day Spa Escape which includes Aromatherapy Massage, facial, pedicure, and lunch in their Grotto or the Staycation package which has all of that plus a Shirodhara Hot Oil Massage.

3233 45th St S, Fargo | (701) 232-9383

Afternoon

Shopping at BLU Water Creek

Finally, after you feel completely refreshed from your spa treatments, walk over to some of the boutiques in the BLU Water Creek which has a variety of shops.

Willow District, Laurie’s, and Leela & Lavender are your clothing stores, while Eco Chic Home, McNeal and Friends, and Dash & White are great for unique home decor pieces.
