It must be a quiet week in Fargo, as I was given an upper floor corner room at the Radisson. At the government rate, this is probably the best hotel deal in the entire upper mid-west.
It certainly provides a perfect vantage point for watching the trains run through town.
I’ve been in Fargo-Moorhead a couple of times since I’ve graduated from college, but I haven’t spent any time there recently.
I kept hearing it had changed, but can’t say I really believed it.
Last night we wandered up and down Broadway and – aside from the fact that you can’t find anything decent to eat after 9:00 p.m. – it was a good place to be. There are an unexpectedly large number of galleries and fun shops and even a bar with live music outdoors. I even started wondering why I had been so eager to leave all those years ago.
Of course, it helped that it was a gorgeous warm spring night. A good night to be outside anywhere.
This morning the view from my window portrayed another perfect summery day. A day I was eager to get out and spend exploring a bit more of Fargo before my meeting.
Until I actually walked outside and discovered that the wind was howling on the other side of my window.
Oh yeah, there were some reasons to leave here. The weather being one of them.
Still, the transformation that has occurred is quite amazing and I am eager to come back with my husband and spend some time examining the merchandise in those galleries and shops, eating dinner at HoDo (before nine p.m., of course), walking along the river, and admiring the art in the fabulous-looking Plains Art Museum.
Let’s see, when did they say I need to come up here again for another meeting?
