Detroit Lakes

We love to make a quick trip to the Detroit Lakes area. We take the boat and swim, fish and spend time with the kids. We have rented quite a few different cabins with friends and spent nights making s’mores and laughing. It is wonderful to be able to go somewhere so close and get a change of scenery. If you go to visitdetroitlakes.com, they have a pretty extensive list of places to stay. - Jennifer Gades, Fargo INC! Associate Publisher

17 Grand Forks and Bottineau

In the winter, I head up to Grand Forks for a hockey game and supper at the Blue Moose. In the summer, we pack up and head to Bottineau for lake time and W’eel Turtle - the world’s largest man-made turtle. This oddly cool attraction is 2,000 steel wheel rims welded together by George Gottbreht, owner of Dale’s Thrifty Barn. - Alex Kizima, Client Relations Administrator

I’m originally from Bemidji so I’m a bit biased but I think what they are doing is cool. Their downtown has been developed so there’s more unique eating and drinking options, more shops with local flair are opening up and it’s becoming more walkable. Plus, they have a great bike trail that you can bike around all of Lake Bemidji. - Andrew Jason, Editorial Director

Blanch Lake

Blanch Lake located close to Battle Lake is a great spot. At the lake, I love to paddle board, swim, bike and go on our boat and jet skies. One place to ensure you do not miss is Battle Lake Boathouse Restaurant. The hospitality and breakfast is amazing. I also love the Otter for dinner and drinks. They have live bands and you can really sit back and relax. - Colleen Dreyer, Vice President of Human Resources

Bozeman, MT

I recently went to Bozeman, MT, for the first time and I was surprised by how much I liked it and how many cool things there are there! We had brunch at Jam! and then spent an afternoon strolling through the downtown. We found a treasure trove of western antiques at Head West and then finished the afternoon with a coffee break at Treeline Coffee Roasters. - Alexandra Martin, Fargo Monthly Editor 2019 | 25
