CoffeebarConveniently located at the junction of Interstate 29/Exit 141 and Highway 2 (4251 Gateway Drive), the Visitor Center is a friendly stopping point for information on Greater Grand Forks events, attractions, shopping, dining and accommodations.  We also have brochures on North Dakota, Minnesota and Winnipeg, along with maps for most states.

 

Professional travel consultants will be available to answer your questions from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday thru Friday and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday.  Even when we’re closed, there is an after-hours information box right outside the front door which is always stocked with Grand Forks Visitors Guides, Simply Grand $avings Coupon Books and North Dakota state maps.

 

LittleFreeGardenThe Visitor Center also houses our Simply Grand Gift Shop, featuring a wide variety of local and regional products.  You’ll find items ranging from RBJ’s Strawberry Rhubarb Jam, North Prairie Signature Bison Sticks and Dot’s Homestyle Pretzels to Grand Forks wine glasses, mugs and t-shirts.  We’re excited to announce that our visitor center manager and in-house designers are currently working feverishly on some cool new souvenir additions soon to be hitting the shelves!

 

ChalkitupOur updated Visitor Center offers free Wi-Fi for guests; plus, use of a computer charging station, two desktop computers and a printer.  We now proudly serve complimentary Bully Brew Coffee by the cup, with locally roasted beans available for purchase in the next couple months.  New outside additions include a paved patio section with café tables, doggie water station and Chalk It Up area where budding artists of every age can help decorate our sidewalk.  We’re also proud owners of a Little Free Garden, with fresh strawberries, cucumbers, green beans and tomatoes free for the picking!

 

Whether you’re here for a family reunion, convention, sporting event or just a weekend getaway, our knowledgeable staff can guide you in the right direction.  Experience first-hand all the helpful services we offer and let us know if there’s anything else we can do to make your stay even grander!
