Things to Do in Grand Forks ND

If you’re purchasing one of the Grand Forks homes and are new to the area, you’ll want to find some of the fun things to do in the city. Fortunately, you’ll find plenty to enjoy in this city located at the fork of the Red Lake and Red Rivers. Here are just a few of the many things to do in Grand Forks, ND.

Downtown and the Grand Forks Square offer something for everyone with public art and art walk events, fun shopping destinations, taverns and karaoke spots, lots of great local restaurants and cafes, special markets, and even fascinating levees. Plus there’s the iconic paddlewheel arch that welcomes you into the area.

For a look at regional, national, and even international artwork, make sure you visit the North Dakota Museum of Art. As well as traditional and more unusual art and artifacts, you’ll also find innovative human rights exhibitions and artworks that specifically relate to the Northern Plains.

For local history, dating from the Ice Age to the pioneering settlers, visit the Myra Museum, named for John Myra, a pioneer and eventual businessman and land owner, who helped settle Emerado, North Dakota.

For some urban serenity, visit the Japanese Gardens at Sertoma Park. It is the result of Grand Forks and the city of Awano, Japan, becoming sister cities. Awano sent stone lanterns made of granite to help decorate the city and park. As well as the beautiful scenery, you’ll enjoy features such as an arboretum, Ali’s Boundless Playground, and hiking trails.

Golfers will enjoy the King’s Walk Golf Course in a natural prairie environment that still offers the kind of atmosphere and enjoyment of iconic courses in Scotland. The outstanding course was designed by Arnold Palmer and includes a restaurant and pro shop.

For a wealth of games and activities, don’t miss the Northern Air Action Park. Here you’ll find a game arcade, a trampoline park, axe throwing, laser tag, indoor karting, Holgate virtual reality, and more games for all ages. This is a great place to host a party thanks to numerous party rooms for groups of any size, as well as a full-service restaurant and bar.

Finally, don’t miss Splasher’s of the South Seas indoor water park, which features a lazy river, a hot tub, a kiddie pool, a regular pool, and exciting waterslides. There are 13 family cabanas, a concession stand, and Garbonzo’s Pizza and Arcade.
