Fargo has a great symphony, community theater and several other amateur theaters. With three colleges and a college population of almost 25,000 students it isn't too provincial. Many large companies has facilities here so there are many people from other places besides ND. Excellent health care facilities, good schools and reasonably good shopping. Fargo has a facility called the Fargodome and has had artists such as; Elton John, Rolling Stones, Billy Joel, Faith Hill, the Eagles, Eric Clapton, Bruce Springsteen, among others perform. They also have a Best of Broadway series.

I have a family that thinks it makes sense to Walk Away from their jobs on the East Coast, plus walk out and let the house fall back to the foreclosure, to head to North Dakota. Better working conditions, plenty of jobs. No one could visit them, 1500 miles away. They will rent apt since the could not buy with foreclosure on record. Is the opportunities all that outstanding in North Dakota to walk away from jobs, even unpleasant, and a nice home to raise a family.

It's not just that the opportunities are better - you have to think about what your walking away from, it's not to hard to walk away from the east coast....
