A High Quality of Life for a Low Cost of Living
Thanks to a movie and popular TV show of the same name, Fargo is on the map! But we're much more than funny accents and woodchippers. With a population of nearly 230,000, the metro area boasts many of the amenities of a larger metro - such as sports, arts, and world-class entertainment - with the attributes of a smaller city - such as low crime rates, affordable housing, and a sense of camaraderie. It boasts one of the nation's lowest unemployment rates and a stable economy. Add to that a low cost of living, a high quality of life, safe neighborhoods, clean air, and a thriving local community and you'll soon realize that the area is an ideal place to live and work.
An Honest, Educated, Diverse, and Friendly Workforce
The high availability of jobs and strong entrepreneurial spirit make this area an attractive place to work. Others around the nation seem to agree! In 2015, the region was named the #1 best-performing small metro in the nation for the second year in a row by the Milken Institute. In 2016, Fargo was listed in NerdWallet's top 10 best cities for young entrepreneurs.
A Captivating Metropolitan Area for Everyone
Culturally vibrant restaurants, cozy coffee shops, distinctive cafes and galleries, relaxing lounges, spirited nightlife, unconventional museums, historical and modern theaters, an assortment of shopping places, a quaint downtown, and multi-purpose parks all vitalize the area.
