It is a nice family safe town where your kids can bike to school, play outside and you don't have to worry about them. The schools are excellent and the neighborhoods are beautiful! A very friendly get to know your neighbor feel about it. Fargo is connected to it and has plenty of opportunities to see concerts, plays, movies, sports, arts ...enough and a nice variety of family events you can attend. Job market is very good as is the cost of living.

I love the school systems as well as the people. We have a little bit of everything within a short distance. Our airport is an international one, yet the town feels like a small town. We have access to great shopping, great restaurants. Local sports and lots of entertainment. Minneapolis is not too far away if we want to hit up a broadway type show or more entertainment. Our population is very diverse with having several different refugee communities as well as get togethers to meet with them and learn about their different cultures.
What I like about West Fargo is the friendly atmosphere. The students, teachers, and several workers that work different careers. I also like that we have lots of things to do. There is one mall, but it is fairly big with several restaurants, salons and stores inside it. We also have several and a variety of different restaurants outside of the mall ranging from Indian, Mexican, American and Italian. We have multiple movie theaters, bowling allies and we have a sky zone. What I'd like to change is the amount of construction we have during the summers. It always takes so long to complete, and sometimes over the due date.
