I love living in north Fargo. It's a city big enough to have everything you could possibly need, but it also has that small town feel to it. You don't have to drive for half an hour just to get to a grocery store or a bank, for example. Finding a job in Fargo is extremely easy and since it is the Midwest, most people are very friendly. The only thing I dislike about Fargo is the crime rate and safety. Things that happen "in the movies" happens here and that's a bit nerve wracking. Other than that, I truly love Fargo and think it's a city of success and opportunities!

Fargo has many opportunities ranging from colleges to employment options! It has a lot of beautiful parks, coffee shops and many restaurants to choose from. One thing i would like to see change is fewer bars and liquor stores.
My overall experience with living in Fargo, North Dakota has been very good so far. Most of the residents are nice and are willing to help others when needed. The town offers various opportunities to get out and doing something whether it’s with family or going out with friends at night. The medical staff in the area are trained professional and know what they are doing. The restaurants in Fargo give you the opportunity to venture out and try something new. Also, in Fargo, there is multiple options on housing that are all in decent shape and affordable. The traffic in Fargo isn’t too bad, but there is a lot of construction happening in the summer that causes some delays during the rush hours.
