Crime & Safety
I was a travel LPN nurse in Oakes North Dakota and my experience there was very nice. Everyone looks out for one another, family oriented, everyone is willing to help out, the stores and eatery are family owned. I enjoyed the valley. The farmland was beautiful. The horses well taken care of. What intrigued me the most were the people. My God, the oldest person I met was 105 years old. Amazing little town.
I love the idea that it's a small town and to me everyone helps everyone out in need. Oakes is a place that has helped my husband and I with our health issues by getting clean fresh air.
I like that it is a small town. I feel that it is a safe place to live. We are strong as a community and always support others in need.
