One of the fastest growing small cities in the country, Fargo, North Dakota, has an enviable mix of plenty of open spaces, a growing economy, and a burgeoning arts and entertainment scene. The city might have shot to fame with its namesake movie, but there is a lot more to it than just 15 seconds of silver-screen fame.
Since Fargo is home to three universities, its arts and theater calendar is choc-a-bloc throughout most of the year. The tradition of theater in Fargo goes back to the days of the Fargo Theatre, which still hosts film festivals, musical plays and ballet performances. The Fargo Winter Carnival is one of the city's long-held traditions, and the Fargodome is where people congregate to catch concert performances. The city has its fair share of intimate, live music venues as well, including The Windbreak, Shotgun Sally's Rock and Roll Saloon, and The Aquarium.
