Fargo is a great city to live in. Not only is the cost of living super cheap, it's an all-around great community! Don't let the stigma of North Dakota fool you...it's not winter all year here, and we have all of the modern amenities of any other city. I have talked to people who actually thought Native Americans still live in tee-pees here!!!! Fargo is a great place to raise a family also...great schools, very low crime rate, and lots of activites for all ages. I highly suggest Fargo as a place to make your home!

I <3 it! - 11/22/2010

I love it here in Fargo I am 13 and love playing in the snow with my little sister in the winter! In the Spring I love going for long walks with my dog in the freash air.I love going swimming and biking in the summer with my best friends. In the fall I love taking pictures of the orange leaves on the tree's! so to you people who think Fargo is a bad town with the weather and all! I VERY strongly disagree with you! (not that you care)

New Fargoan - 4/28/2009

Have only lived here little over a year and really enjoy it. Nicest people I've met anywhere. It's a diverse community with many opportunities to serve others in need. Many ways to serve homeless, new immigrants, the young...etc. Community spirit and involvement is very high. The way everyone pitched in to save the city during the flood was beyond words. Great place to raise kids, low crime, and I've heard the school standards are excellent. Many opportunities for sports, arts, theater...etc for kids to stay active. Great Libraries too! If you like the midwest and don't mind a longer (7 month) winter you'll love Fargo!

Great place to live, except in the winter - 12/7/2008

I really enjoy Fargo...most of the time. It's got a great balance of all four seasons; hot in the summer, cold in the winter. If you're into all types of activities, then it's a great place to be. However, I'm not into hunting/fishing/skiing/snowboarding, so cold weather and snow are not my bag. I've lived here my whole life and I'm used to it, but I've gotten more interested in running/outdoor sports, so I would prefer to live somewhere that I can do that year round. Fargo also lacks some nightly entertainment. The bar scene is big, if you're into that (three 4-year post-secondary schools in the area). Not a good representation of big concerts/theater. Fargo has many perks though: low cost of living, low crime rate, no heavy traffic. If you enjoy the winter, then it's a great place to be.

Fargo isn't so bad - 11/9/2008

I've lived in and around Fargo for about 15 years now. It is cheap and the economy is good right now even in the midst of the crisis. If you can get over the fact that it is smaller and that it is cold Fargo is a relatively nice place to live.

Great place to live if you enjoy daily seasonal c - 4/19/2008

Please keep in mind that this review maybe a little premature considering we have only lived here for nine months. The elementary educational system we have found to be excellent. But the cost of living we have not found to be substantially different from the Mountain West where we moved from. The money is just switched to different categories taxes, groceries, medical/dental coverage is higher. The taxes are four times higher on housing. The cost of fresh fruits/vegetables a 1/3 higher and limited. There are no fresh salad bars around here!. The community lives on red meat, potatoes and beer. There's a Happy Harry's liquor store on every corner. The cost to join a public fitness facility is twice as high and limited. If you are not into snowmobiling, hockey, football and living indoors this is not a good place to live in the winter. Blue cross/Blue shield is the (ONLY) choice we have and the premium is comparable with our old coverage,but, the deductible is very high. A good majority of the dental offices do not accept MetLife insurance ,so, you can expect to travel 45miles or more for the nearest dentist. If you are use to living a very healthy, active lifestyle biking, running and being outdoors a good majority of the year this is not a good place to be. But if your main purpose is to find a better educational system for your children its great! A overall better place to raise your children? the jury is still out on that one.

Economy - 3/11/2008

Fargo is a college town so the base wages are lower. Seven dollars to nine dollars per hour is an average starting wage. Jobs are plentiful. Fargo is becoming a "high tech" city. Industry has discovered that there is a plentiful work force. If you can deal with the 30 below tempetures in the winter it is a good place to live.

Great place - 6/11/2007

Overall, Fargo is a very nice place, but the downtown and Island Park are my favorite parts of the city. For its size, Fargo's downtown has a lot to offer and there are more things opening all of the time. The newer sections of the city around West Acres are not very appealing, but as someone who loves old neighborhoods, I'm a bit biased. The newer sections are really not any worse or better than any other suburban area. The more established areas of the city are quite charming, quiet and very family oriented.

"culture" - 3/16/2007

in addition to all the economic reasons that make Fargo a phenomenal place to live, there's been a recent revitalization of the downtown area which has included the addition of art galleries/museums, fine dining, a world class hotel, a fun night scene, and some greatshopping. (if only there was parking to keep up with the cars) i'm always blown away when i hear fargo residents say "there's nothing to do." i find so much to do in this community, i have a hard time choosing between the endless options. if you find a night in town when there's not a concert, a reading, a show, or some event happening here, i'd be surprised.

Born and raised here, Fargo's great. Great people, good job opportunities, safe schools. NDSU has done great things for Fargo. The city is really committed to the constant improvement of the community.

The quality of life in Fargo, ND is the best. Low crime, one of the lowest unemployment rates in the nation, good schools, low cost of living and affordable housing. The winters can get long and very cold, but the past few winters have been pretty mild.

Good & Bad in Fargo - 5/18/2006

Fargo is a great place to live in many respects, but the major drawbacks here are the weather, which is horrible. Also, flying in and out of Fargo is expensive & time consuming. If you are taking a vacation, expect to spend your whole first day just traveling to your destination. Same with the last day of your vacation, you will spend all day and most of the night flying or at an airport waiting for a flight home.

Fargo is a great city to live in. Not only is the cost of living super cheap, it's an all-around great community! Don't let the stigma of North Dakota fool you...it's not winter all year here, and we have all of the modern amenities of any other city. I have talked to people who actually thought Native Americans still live in tee-pees here!!!! Fargo is a great place to raise a family also...great schools, very low crime rate, and lots of activites for all ages. I highly suggest Fargo as a place to make your home!

Fargo is a great place to live! - 5/6/2006

Fargo is a great community all around. Not only is the cost of living super cheap, but there are plenty of things to do here. Don't let the stigma of North Dakota get to you...it's not winter all year, and we have all of the modern amenities any other city would have! I have talked to people who thought we still have Native Americans living in teepees here...WOW!!! Fargo is a great place to raise a family too...schools are great, crime rate is very low, and there are plenty of activities to involve yourself in. I have lived here most of my life, and I hope to raise my family here too.

Super low cost of living - 4/14/2006

I have lived in a number of communities, and Fargo by far has the lowest cost of living. Although I will say that there really isn't much to do here, so you end up spending the money you save to keep the boredom level down.

Fargo is a "best place" - 7/8/2005

I have lived on my own in grand forks ND, fargo ND, duluth MN and minneopolis MN and now I am about to return to fargo, I am 21 and love big city life and alot of action and I never thought I would say fargo can give me more then mlps could. I can make more in mlps but I lose alot of time driving and commuting but if fargo I can get out any night of the week with vary little hassle and there is plenty going on and as a dog owner I cant stand working a hour away from home(only a few miles) I would recomend this hidden town to anybody, its definetly a town on the grow with 13 new people moving in everyday and big business always moving it it offers many jobs and good income rates compared to most citys and the cost of rentals and owning is spectacular.
