Wahpeton boasts attractions within the city - such as the Prairie Rose Carousel, a restored 1926 carousel open every summer near the Zoo - alongside nearby historic sites and also plenty of outdoor activities, such as fishing the Red River and boating in the Kidder Recreation Area .
The Zoo provides details of opening times and prices, the special "Grandpa's Little Zoo" area for children and information about volunteer opportunities.
Wahpeton can only be reached easily by road - highway I-29 runs west of the town. There is an airport - Harry Stern Airport to the south of the town - but only for private flights, and the two railroad companies are not used for passenger services. The nearest commercial airport is Hector International Airport in Fargo.
