What Bert Has To Say About Grand Forks Metro Area


Grand Forks is located along the U.S. 2 east-west highway corridor at the Minnesota border. It is the home of the University of North Dakota, the state’s oldest and largest institute of higher learning. The downtown area is typically Midwestern with small shops and an assortment of mostly brick commercial buildings. Primary industries are related to the university or agriculture—the Red River Valley location contains some of the most fertile land in the world—and the Grand Forks Air Force Base adds to the economy.
