We asked our Instagram followers what their ideal spring day itinerary would include. Here’s what they said:
Start the day getting a sweat on at one of the drop-in gyms in the area. Courts Plus has guest day passes for $15 per adult or $30 for families and offers group fitness, a huge indoor playground, tennis and pickleball, and an entire fitness area. Family Wellness is another option for day passes; grab the $20 single-visit pass for an adult or the $30 family pass and enjoy this elite facility.
There are tons of brunch options in Fargo, and we recommend kicking off your culinary journey by doing just that. Get showered after your yoga sesh (or don’t) and head to The Tavern for some build-your-own options like omelets, pancakes, and more, or Marge’s Diner for bottomless mimosas and brunch/lunch options like sausage biscuit bites and hangover hashbrowns. Rosewild has joined the party with brunch cocktails and orange cinnamon rolls.
Hit the Trails
After what’s sure to be a good meal, walk it off on one of Fargo’s many trails. Lindenwood Park has miles to tackle with trails; enjoy the budding trees and wildlife as you listen to the flowing water of the river. Plus, multiple bridges bring you into Gooseberry Park across the river into Moorhead (snap a pic on the bridge on your way over as you’re in two states at once!).
Next up on the itinerary, hit the links for a round of golf in the afternoon. There are many courses; for a more leisurely round, El Zagal has a quick 9-hole course that’s great for beginners. For a step up, Prairiewood and Osgood are fantastic neighborhood courses that also have just 9-holes.
If you want to extend your round, Village Green and Rose Creek have similar yardage on an 18-hole course. At the same time, Edgewood is a premier course along the river in North Fargo, and Meadows has a sweeping prairie option with the longest yardage.
Plus, there’s a new beast in town, Suite Shots. This golf & entertainment experience has 60 climate-controlled hitting Suites powered by the Toptracer Ranger software. Or… try one of the five indoor simulation rooms where you can try golf or one of the many other games, including football, soccer, hockey, hunting, and zombie dodgeball.
You can’t go wrong with local beer to wrap up your day. Fargo is chock-full of breweries, so take your pick and enjoy.
Hang out in Drekker Brewing or their new addition Brewhalla for the full food market experience. Another option is Junkyard’s awesome patio to try their experimental beers or check out Fargo Brewing’s upgraded taproom and in-house food truck. Swing Barrel has a more urban vibe, while Pixeled has many arcade games. Lastly, Icewind Brewing has excellent beers and is located just west of town in Mapleton, ND.
Spring has sprung in Fargo; get out there and enjoy. If this itinerary doesn’t suit you, pick from the other spring-time itineraries.
