Question moving to Sidney Montana/North Dakota. Help! advice? i dont know what i'm doing lol :]

my boyfriend got a job in North Dakota in the oil industry. he'd be living in Sidney and after i finish school i'm going to go down there too. were orriginallly from the Athol, ID area. s oifyou could help that would be so great! XD

Ireally want to open up a coffee shop and my boyfriend says there's not much like that down there. is that true? is there a college near Sidney where students might go to a coffee shop?

i looked into Sidney a little but i couldnt find much. as far as the weather goes, i'm used to really cold temperatures and snow so that's not really a problem.

Are there parks and lakes near by?

if you could help me out that would be awesome! :] thank you so much!

Hey Leah!

I'm originally from the Sidney area, although I currently don't live there. Sidney is pretty small, but from a quick Google search it is larger than the area you're from. Sidney has one local coffee shop and one or two of those little drive-up coffee huts. I'm not sure if there is a lot of excess demand that the Bean Bag can't keep up with. A lot of the oil boom workers who come here are more likely to pick up their coffee at the gas station, although those who bring wives/older children might add some business.

How long before you move up here? Does your boyfriend have housing lined up?

Sidney is located near the Yellowstone River along with smaller damns and lakes. Lots of outdoor activity opportunities. It has a decent public library. Shopping has improved a little, but don't expect anything exciting in the way of clothes. Several bars and most have casinos attached. Religion is mainly Catholic and Lutheran, with a few other strains of Protestant thrown in.

Anything you'd like to ask, please feel free!
