Getting to Fargo-Moorhead

Fargo, North Dakota and Moorhead, Minnesota are sister cities of the Red River Valley. Fargo is the largest community in North Dakota and Moorhead borders it along the Minnesota side. Running through the two communities and acting as a natural boundary is the Red River of the North. Today the cities are the crossing point of Interstate 94 (east and west) and Interstate 29 (north and south).
