I have lived in Aberdeen my whole life and I personally think that it is a great town. Although at times it may seem like there is not a lot to do around here, the people are great and everyone knows one another. The community is very friendly, welcoming, and continuing to grow constantly. Aberdeen is a very safe community and a great place to raise kids.

I like living here in Aberdeen. I moved here a couple years ago from Saint Cloud, MN. It's not too big and it's not too small population wise. Growing up in a big city makes me thankful for the smaller towns. There was way too much crime and craziness in Saint Cloud. I can remember multiple times where I feared for my safety just doing everyday things. I think Aberdeen is a much safer city. I wish that there was more to do activity wise around Aberdeen though.
Coming from Loveland, Colorado to Aberdeen, South Dakota was a challenge kind of. My parents and I where on our way to dropping me off at college and before getting into Aberdeen it seems like there is no sign of life but as soon as I got into the town it reminded me a little bit of home, a smaller Loveland, Colorado. The town itself is really pretty especially now as the seasons change it's beautiful and the people in town are great they are respectful and kind and it has a feeling of familiarity in the town as if everyone knows everyone.
