Set among the gently rolling hills of Northwest Minnesota, in an area dotted with lakes and verdant forests, Fergus Falls offers outdoor fun, shopping and entertainment in a scenic, small town setting.

Located along Interstate 94, about two-and-a-half hours northwest of Minneapolis, the city is a convenient stop for those exploring the western side of the state. Birders will find great views along the Pine to Prairie Birding Trail, a 200-mile trail that hosts 275 species. For those interested in spectacular views the Otter Trail Scenic Byway highlights the cultural, historical and natural significance of the county, with many snapshot-worthy vistas.

Fergus Falls has a strong arts culture, with rotating exhibits, gallery crawls and festivals that celebrate the visual arts. There’s also a performing arts center that draws national acts as well as local performers in a revamped Vaudeville-era theater.

The picturesque downtown features a Town Hall modeled after Independence Hall in Philadelphia and turn-of-the-century buildings that serve as home for the many shops and cafes that dot the city. 

The Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Fergus Falls, MN makes the perfect home base to explore the area. Start your adventures with a hearty, warm Be Our Guest Breakfastfeaturing hot entrees, cereal, bagels and fruit. And, when you’re done with your busy day, relax in the pool or curl up with a book by the fireplace and a chocolate chip cookie.

Whether you’re birding, shopping or just relaxing, Fergus Falls is the perfect setting for your next adventure.
