28 December 2021- Visiting family

Jefferson Lines

Pros: Being able to look out the window and now drive myself. The scenery and snow were beautiful. And sitting near a friendly person was key too. Cons: It took a while to get going due to the driving filing all the tickets and writing numbers down. The sign on the screen above the seats says something about paperless but that wasn’t the majority of patrons. We waited 20 min at the station just for her to do that part. Tips: Dress warm and be grateful you make it at all during the winter.

Pros: Relaxing. Cons: Nothing that I observed. Tips: Reminder email before the trip.

City Information


Fargo conjures up thoughts of the Old West, a movie, and one part of a famous stage coach line in the 1800s. However, this isn't the 1800s, and Fargo is more than a collection of outdated old stereotypes. It's now a thriving city with plenty of hotel, dining, and entertainment options. It's also home to North Dakota State University, a national powerhouse in the Football Championship Subdivision, and a vibrant artistic scene.

On your trip to Fargo, North Dakota's largest city, visit the Plains Art Museum, the Fargo Air Museum, and Bonanzaville USA to learn about local history. The Red River Zoo will be a hit with kids.

A visit to the Drekker Brewery is a must for beer lovers. Everything is still done by hand with meticulous attention to the ingredients and the quality of its beers. But, of course, the best way to get into the Drekker vibe is to go to their taproom and try a few samples!

Jefferson Lines provides bus service to Fargo, with routes from Minneapolis, Denton, and even Los Angeles. You can also hop on a train to Fargo from Chicago, New Haven, and Petersburg.

Situated along the bank of the Mississippi River in Minnesota, Minneapolis is one of the biggest and most exciting cities to visit in the Midwest. It is home to the Chain of Lakes, where you can swim, fish, boat and even bike or walk along the lakeside trails. It’s no wonder Minneapolis is among the top 10 cities in the U.S. for outdoor activities!

Although it's known as the City of Lakes, Minneapolis has a lot more to offer than gorgeous lakes, wetlands, and waterfalls. Shopaholics can spend days getting lost in the Mall of America, which boasts over 500 stores and an indoor theme park. If you're visiting Minneapolis on a romantic vacation, Minneapolis' bustling theater district offers excellent date nights from dozens of theater companies. Or, for a less musical and more brews-ical date option, head to one of 62 top-rated breweries in the #2 best city in America for craft beer.

Minneapolis can be visited in any season, but keep in mind that it becomes a frigid, snowy destination in the winter. January hovers around 0° Fahrenheit, but it's worth bundling up to enjoy the St. Paul Winter Carnival, or hockey and ice skating on any of the 13 lakes in the city. Have we mentioned how great the lakes are?

If you're visiting both of the Twin Cities, you can take public transport from downtown Minneapolis to Saint Paul in about 30 minutes. Public transit also connects downtown to the Minneapolis–Saint Paul International Airport. Thanks to bus stations throughout Minneapolis, traveling by bus is the easiest way to arrive directly in the middle of the action and begin your adventure.
