    It's a nice place for a family to live. Especially those who have a family history in the area. It's not so nice for a single man/woman. It's a small town with many families ranging from single parents to extended. It mainly consists of elderly and children. Everything is within walking distance. The town does not provide any transportation, you must have tiur own car. Unless you are traveling into town (Fargo, ND) then they provide a bus which is mostly used by the elderly. The bus is not accessible 24/7.
    There is a strong sense of community, everyone knows everyone. Most people have been living there long term and when new people move in they stay. Many even most have pets mostly dogs that are all friendly and trained well. The dogs get along with each other and there is never loud dogs barking through the night. Going outside during the night there is no fear, you can always feel safe. Overal I am thankful for this area because it is a tight nit coummunity that is safe.
    There isn't much crime to talk about. It's a pretty safe place to live. But when there is something wrong the police/fire department/ ambulance is there. If it's something bigger, surrounding towns police/fire department will come.
