Grand Forks & East Grand Forks

Put all the flood stuff you know about Grand Forks out of your mind. This bustling college town is back and has a knack for making visitors feel young at heart, like the thousands of University of North Dakota students that call it home. Visitors don’t have to settle for the same old song and dance here. Live local music, a relaxing greenway along the Red River and unique dining in the historic downtown add a buzz to any stay. Don’t miss out on art exhibits and tours, special dining and attractions both downtown and at the university. Along the banks of the Red River, Grand Forks offers fun for every season. Summer boasts outdoor activities like biking, camping and birding. In the winter, there’s cross-country skiing, sledding and, of course, University of North Dakota hockey games. Enjoy shopping and great dining year-round.
