Not for most - 8/9/2018
Been living here for 20 + yrs...

Pros - Safe, decent schools, commute, low unemployment & nice summers.

Cons - Cost of living, taxes (highest in the state), Excessive pricing on flights, due to Minneapolis being the closest major airport (8hrs away), quality of life due to terrible winters. Very few activities for families on a day to day basis & very poorly managed.

Neutral - 1/3 of the population is from a major Air Force Base north of Read More

Please don't listen to the negative reviews for Minot. I've been a resident here for 10 years now, and have lived in the state since 1996. Growing up in Bottineau, ND, Minot was the closest "big city" for us and was often a travel destination for shopping, dining, movies, and so on.

Cost of living - 6/4/2013
OIL BOOM. LOTS OF JOBS. APARTMENTS ARE RENTING FOR $1,000 A BEDROOM. GOOD SCHOOLS, BUT GETTING OVER CROWDED. ALL STREETS IN NEED OF REPAIR. LONG COLD WINTERS. BEAUTIFUL SUMMERS, BUT THEY ARE SHORT. THE COST OF GROCERIES HAVE ABOUT DOUBLED SINCE THE OIL BOOM. A CUP OF YOGRT COSTING $1.00 IN MOST PLACES NOW COST $2.00 HERE. GAS PRICES RUN HIGHER HERE THAN IN MINNESOTA AND WISCONSIN. Read More

Magic City - 6/13/2007
