I would try Sioux Falls or Rapid City in South Dakota first. No state income tax and no worse off than Fargo, and quite a bit warmer.

Smile Moving to North Dakota?

North Dakota is the friendliest state with the lowest unemployment and crime rates, making it very desireable to many people who care about these points. Are you set on living in the city? If not, you can find housing cheaper in the more rural areas. Housing in the town we live is about $30,00-$40,000 cheaper than a comparable house in Fargo. Granted we are in the middle of the state. It has its benefits as the major cities are each about 2-3 hours in four directions. Smaller cities with large retail stores are within 30-50 minutes. You can buy most things you need right here in town, though. We have three gas/convenience stores, 1 grocery, 1 pharmacy, clinic/hospital, a school, movie theatre, a coffee shop that serves food, a diner, a Dairy Queen, a pizza & sub place, 2 bars, 5 churches, 3 banks, a newspaper, a library, a bowling alley.....If you are the entrepreneurial type, you can be your own boss, doing freelance work on-site, at home or on-line. That seems to work well for a lot of people here. We have short term furnished or long term rentals available. [Mod cut] if you think you might like to live in a village near a huge lake with great fishing and boating. It is a fishing, birding and duck and goose hunter's paradise. Perfect for someone who wants to control their life's pace. Life can be as busy or a quiet as you wish here.
