Whether you get excited about fishing in the Red River, golfing a classic course spread out over two states, visiting the zoo or simply riding in circles on a carousel, Wahpeton has something for you.
No visit to this southeastern North Dakota city would be complete without a stop at the Chahinkapa Zoo, where you will see a wide variety or species in a setting along the winding Red River. It also is home to the Prairie Rose Carousel, a restored 1926 Spillman Carousel, one of three operating in the United States. Want to see "Wahpper," the world's largest catfish?
It's here, too. For a relaxing afternoon on the links, Bois de Sioux Golf Course is unique in that it is the only golf course in the United States featuring nine holes in two states. The front nine is in North Dakota and the back nine in Minnesota. Depending on the time of your visit, you might be able to catch a football or basketball game at North Dakota State College of Science. Click here for more things to see and do in Wahpeton.
After a day out on the town or in the area, head downtown to grab a bite to eat in one - or more - of the city's unique dining options, including the Boiler Room, where you can find great food, craft cocktails, an extensive wine list and all your favorite regional brews. Prante's is another fine dining option.
