Things To Do In Fargo-Moorhead When You’re Under 21

Welcome back, college students! We’ve put together a quick guide to finding some cool things to do when you’re under 21.

Things To Do Under 21 Fargo Moorhead

LAST UPDATED MAY 2018

It’s tough to be under 21 in college. As some of your friends are hitting up college drink specials downtown, you’re stuck home eating pizza for the third time this week, watching reruns of your favorite show and thinking how being under 21 is one of the dullest part of college. And let’s be honest, it can be slim pickings in a city that emphasizes mug nights, beer festivals and bar crawls. As 35,000+ students return to the area, we went back to our freshman year to find some of the best things to do in town when you’re under 21. Have fun Cobbers, Bison and Dragons.

For more events and live music in the FM area, be sure to check out our Live Music Calendar and our Event Calendar.

GET ACTIVE

BOWLING
Whether you are a competitive bowler or you just like to hang out with friends, Fargo-Moorhead has several bowling alleys around the area. Sunset Lanes in Moorhead has college night every Thursday from 9 p.m. – 1 a.m. with all-you-can-bowl for $7.25 per person until close. In the winter, West Acres Bowl hosts college night every Tuesday and Thursday after 5 p.m. where you get $2/person/lane or $10/hour/lane. Other bowling alleys host events for college students throughout the fall season, so check out their websites for their college nights.

LEARN A NEW SPORT OR JOIN A CITY LEAGUE
You’re never too old to learn a new sport. You can join intramural sports, but that’s restricted to your college. Whether you’re a casual player looking to get a little more active or want to discover some new hobbies, adult programs and city leagues are the way to go. For anything from fencing to dodgeball, grab a few friends and check out what the Fargo Park District has what you need to get you moving.

SKATEBOARDING
Skateboarding around campus is efficient but not quite as fun as showing off your skills around town. Fargo has two skate parks free to the public. The public skate parks are open from dawn until dusk. The Fargo Park District highly recommends the use of proper protective gear.

GO FOR A RUN OR BIKE RIDE
Fargo’s trails along the Red River are great for runners, bikers or walkers that want to get out of college gyms and enjoy the weather before winter hits. Before class, get in a 5K run from Dike West to Lindenwood Park while enjoying the peaceful and free-running trail.

  • Beyond Running
    516 Broadway, Fargo
    701-365-4786
    Beyond Running’s Running Club welcomes all levels, from walker to rocket and everything in between, to join in their year-round runs. The runs all start from the store on Broadway, and there are 3-, 5- and 7-mile routes, but runners can stop at anytime when needed. It’s free to the public and there’s no need to sign-up, just show up on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:30 p.m.
  • Great Rides Bike Share
    You don’t need to own a bike to enjoy a bike ride. Bike sharing makes it economical and convenient for college students to use bikes for trips that are too far away to walk but too short to drive. Each ride is only $4 an hour, and you can pay with your Visa or MasterCard. NDSU students rejoice because you can enroll online with your NDSU card and your student membership will give you free unlimited 30-minute rides. Check out GreatRides.BCycle.com for bike sharing locations and membership options.

GOLF
The Fargo Golf courses offer a discounted fall season pass to all five of the golf courses. You can get in some round of golf at Edgewood, Rose Creek, Osgood, Prairiewood and El Zagal before the season ends.

DISC GOLF
There are several courses in the FM area. In North Fargo, Oak Grove Park and Trollwood both have 18-hole options, and Woodlawn Park in Moorhead also has an 18-hole course. Iwen Park, on 52nd Avenue between Moorhead and Fargo, has two courses: 9 holes or 18 holes. All you need is a flying disc to play.

COFFEE/TEA SHOPS

Great adventures start off with a great cup of coffee. Hang out “Friends” style at local coffee shops. They are a great place to get out of the dorm room to study, read a book or even play board games, like at 20 Below Coffee. As mentioned before, the Red Raven is more than an espresso parlor. They have live music, comedy shows and more. Throughout the semester, some coffee shops occasionally have discounts or special events for college students to get fueled up on a budget.

Red Raven Espresso Parlor
916 Main Ave., Fargo
701-478-7337

Twenty Below Coffee
14 Roberts St. N., Fargo
701-566-0977

ARTS AND CRAFTS

Clay Your Way
4600 17th Ave. S., Fargo
701-356-9229
Clay Your Way is a paint-your-own pottery studio where attendees create one-of-a-kind personalized pottery pieces. They also offer glass fusing, canvas painting and more. It’s a fun place to go with friends and do something a little different.
