1. Crash the Fargo Marathon Party.
Fargo Marathon Day: Where you can score a breakfast burrito, drink a mimosa, and check out a band (or Native American drummers or fire dancers or gymnasts) before 8 a.m. Cheering spectators and early-morning party tents line the curb, so bring a lawn chair to sit on the edge of the action.
2. Eat like a cowboy.
Yeah, Medora’s Pitchfork Steak Fondue is touristy. But cooking giant hunks of steak on pitchforks is freaking cool and the sweeping view of the badlands bluffs from the outdoor terrace is beautiful, so get over it and eat.
