The Fargo Moorhead Metro Area
The metro area features three distinct cities. Bordering the eastern edge of North Dakota, the state’s largest city at just under 120,000, Fargo has a vibrant downtown and shopping district that draws people from around the region. West Fargo, with a population of nearly 35,000, is one of the state’s fastest-growing communities with a number of new housing developments. Moorhead, Minnesota, just across the Red River, is a community of over 42,000 residents that has a small-town feel with the amenities of a large community.
