Ask Kelsey | First Dates in Fargo

Hey Kelsey,

I have a first date this week, and I have no idea where to go. I am new to the area and am not familiar with what is fun to do around here. Can you help me out?


Dear Anonymous,

I can understand how it might be hard to come up with date ideas. At first glance, Fargo may seem like a boring place. But underneath the surface there are some pretty unique things to do.

Sky Zone

This indoor trampoline park is a great way to get exercise and have fun. They offer dodgeball, basketball, a foam pit and, coming soon, aerobics, all of which are on trampolines. Bring your student ID for college night 8-10 p.m. Thursdays to enjoy two hours of jumping for $10.

Red River Zoo

This outdoor zoo is a great place to spend a sunny afternoon enjoying the weather and the animals. The Red River Zoo is filled with over 100 animals spanning across 30 acres. With an admission fee of $8.75 you could spend the whole day there with your date.


Your significant other a history buff? This pioneer village located in West Fargo will take you back to life in the mid-19th century. Admission is $12, which covers entrance to the main museum, rotating gallery and the village. The annual craft fair will run 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday.

See a film

The Fargo Theatre is offering a classic film series that started last week and continues through January. The next film showing is not to be missed: The Rocky Horror Picture Show is 7:30 and 11 p.m. Oct. 30. All films are $5.

Art Gallery

The Plains Art Museum is one of the many art galleries the Fargo-Moorhead area has to offer. Paintings line the walls making a great place to bring your date. Get lost in the sculptures and contemplate your future together. Bring your student ID for free admission any day of the week.

Go get ’em tiger,
