In Fargo, right next to the wood chipper, sits the Best for Last Club.
It’s an exclusive cadre of visitors who made North Dakota the 50th state they’d visited, a list of 2,500-plus names at the Fargo-Moorhead Visitors Center reflecting people who stopped in to check off a state they’d found no reason to visit ahead of the other 49.
Admittedly, finding a reason to visit North Dakota can be challenging (it was #47 for me). But seven to nine times a year, North Dakota State University has as good a reason to visit as anywhere in our football-loving nation. Even if you care nothing about football. Because tailgating a football game in Fargo is an education in what this windswept, snow-covered state is all about, and one of the best ways to experience a state you probably know nothing about.
