Hibbing is a small town. There isn't a lot to do but the people are pretty great. Some of the best places to eat in hibbing are sportsman's, pizza ranch, and china buffet. We a Walmart. Hibbing is known for its many historical sights. Come see bob Dylan's house, the historical hibbing high school auditorium, and old hibbing where hibbing was located before it had to move due to mining.

I have lived in Hibbing for my entire life. I would say that my school experience has been really great—awesome class sizes, good curriculum, and great location—but there are some downsides. There isn't much to do for young folks, but as young folks always do, we adapt. The movie theater here is lovely. There is a good sense of community around here. Potlucks, fundraisers, and craft sales are very popular. Our local Caribou gets a lot of business. I would say that it is hard to find a good, stable job here as an adult. If you are looking to relocate a family, Hibbing isn't a bad choice. However, if you are looking to start a family—go elsewhere. This is not a good place for single, young adults.
Hibbing is a very nice and calm environment to live and go to school. there’s not of activities around here, but if you live the lakes, hiking, running! fishing and hunting! then this is the best place to look. Best thing about this place, it’s not expensive to live here.
