About the Area
Grand Forks and the Red River Valley Area
What is the Red River Valley?
Stretching along the North Dakota and Minnesota border, the Red River Valley is an area of lush farmland fed by the fertile soil surrounding the Red River. With its rich agricultural plains, dense woodlands, and sparkling river, the Red River Valley is a popular area for both residents and tourists alike. We love this area's beautiful scenery, abundant outdoor recreation opportunities, and charming small towns. Local surrounding communities include Grand Forks, which is well-known for its rich economy and winter recreation, and Devil's Lake, which covers a 30-mile radius around North Dakota's largest natural lake.
