The perfect day in Fargo (summer edition)

We asked our Instagram followers what their ideal summer day would include. Here’s what they said:

Breakfast at a Diner

A midwest staple, diners are for everyone no matter your taste buds, and we have quite a few options. Just off I-94, Randy’s will have you feeling nostalgic with its leather booth and unlimited refills. The Shack (voted the best breakfast in the area consistently) is another option. You can’t go wrong with any of the others like CJ’s, Deaner’s, and Kroll’s.

Take a Swim

A summer staple, swimming is a must. Check out the slides at Davies Recreational Pool, Southwest Recreation, Veterans Memorial, and Moorhead Municipal. Plus, check out the diving board at Island Park.

Lunch at a Mexican Restaurant

Before you know it it’s lunchtime. Try the tacos and margaritas at Vinyl Taco downtown, or enjoy specialties like molcajetes at Mangos or Acapulco. Be sure to check out all of our Mexican restaurants if you find yourself craving one more taco.

Grab a Cider

It seems to be about time for an afternoon drink. Try an experimental cider from Wild Terra. Get a flight choosing from their selections ranging from dry to sweet. They also serve wine, kombucha, and sparkling water.

Dinner from a Food Truck

Food trucks are the peak of summer eating. Whether they’re at a brewery, on Broadway, or milling about, social media will help you locate them. Some of our favorites are Pico, Windsor Waffle, Detroit Deli, and Mother Cluckers. Which food truck tickles your fancy?

Listen to some Live Music

It’s not summer without live music. Any night you will have multiple options. Whether you’re outdoors at a brewery like Fargo Brewing, Drekker, or Swing Barrel; or at the local favorites like Dempsey’s, Rosewild, and Sidestreet.


Summer is thriving, get out there and enjoy. If this itinerary doesn’t do it for you, pick from the other itineraries.
