I'm still trying to work out what drives anyone to move to Fargo.
I had been considering moving to this town for a little while now and TBH I can't come up with more than a few concrete plus points, with minus points seeming to make a longer list and the items in that minus list being more significant.
I think there must be some sheep mentality going on with dreamer type folks, or something like that.
I don't think having a reasonable day-to-day life for 4-5 months a year is worth it.
Surely ,many people move for a better quality of life, not to lessen what quality they can have.
So many people on this forum say don't come here if you don't have a place to live in already (how is this possible?) or don't hope to get anything more than a $8 an hour jobs if you're not moving top Fargo because of a job.
It seems that the city won't grow much to cope with demand and I have seen my own city refusing to change its backward and parochial ways when lots of people moved here.
It seems you are confusing Fargo with the western part of the state. Fargo doesnt have a housing issue like the oil regions and the Fargo area has the infrastructure for continued growth.....like it always has through the 90s. Fargo isnt the promise land of oil jobs....but it is very typical of most 100k-200k metro areas in terms of opportunites....with bonus of being clean and much less crime than many cities it's size. Though you begin to wonder with the news of late...
I went after all. The watering holes are outstanding, the people are fun and friendly, and the shopping is surprisingly good! The University has a lot going on, if you Fargoans aren't too aware! Town seemed to be bustling.
Sadly, I left my camera in the car most of the time. Fargo's sweet though! I love your state! I even drove out to Valley City and a little further than that to see some quite interesting topography and charming little towns. Who knew North Dakota actually had... stuff!?
Visited this past weekend from Winnipeg, and I love it. Beautiful prairie city, lots of very nice folks, and some great shopping. I will definitely visit your city again. Most folks only go as far as Grand Forks, but I think the extra hour is definitely worth it.
Cause its cold?
cause its white???
cause I said so???
All the white people, come on now!
