As the Fargo-Moorhead continues to grow at an astonishing rate of a dozen residents a day, our identity is being shaped by the nearly 230,000 citizens. We went to you, the people who are molding and shaping our culture, to ask you about what makes our community special.
We sat down with Amanda Wolf, photographer and owner of Lemon Drops Photography, to talk about her favorite things to do in the Fargo-Moorhead community.
A little about Amanda…
I am an energetic, mom of two and wife with a total Type A personality. I’m 100 percent a morning person as my daily to-do list is always too long for sleeping in. I have an internal need to be creative and I’m always looking for new ways to use this energy up, hence the reason I have too many hobbies to name.
Favorite things to do during free time…
Finding a new playground. When we have downtime, the kids and I pack a lunch and take off to explore a new one that we haven’t played on yet. On our way home, we pick a name for the park that represents our favorite thing about it.
Stroll through the Plains Art Museum and Underbrush Gallery to see what is new. We like to see all the local art. It is unbelievable what talent our community has to offer.
Practice my photography in and around the FM area from Downtown Fargo-Moorhead to the abundance of wildlife areas that have been created through the park districts along the Red River.
Favorite hidden things to do in Fargo-Moorhead…
1. Harwood Legion Cosmic Bingo on Friday nights. This is bingo on steroids and beyond a good time for a Friday night. The black lights are on and daubers in full glow as old-time music videos play on the televisions.
2. Cross-country skiing or snowshoeing at the parks and golf courses during the winter. There are a number of locations throughout the FM area.
3. Orangetheory recently opened in Fargo and if you are looking for a great workout that will keep the calories burning, this is your ticket and the first class is free.
One Fun Thing To Know About Amanda…
I love getting to say I am from Fargo-Moorhead. I think it is a privilege to be part of this great, growing community as we all have the same values and desires, no matter how big we get.
