    Hello North Dakota????

    Advertisements
    Hello everyone! I am going to be moving to North Dakota by next year after I finish school in December of 2017. I am just wondering how everyone likes it up there? I have only visited. Any advice or guidance about living up there would be very much appreciated!!

    I grew up in North Dakota. Let me know if you have particular questions. Mostly be prepared for all weather at all times.

    I have never driven in the snow, like the type you all get up there lol. I little fresh powder yes... but blizzard status nooo haha! That scares me a bit. Also, do you know any good places to visit or go to that would be great for a little get away. I am visiting my DB soon and I'll be there for 12 days. Maybe I could set something up for the two of us and surprise him.

    I would never willingly live in North Dakota, sorry. lol. Get some nice warm winter clothes and expect long winters. But where ever you live its up to you to make the best of it. Im sure there are plenty of things to see and do there.

    Haha! I've heard that from a few people. I'll get to be with my DB though so I'm okay with wherever we are as long as I get to be with him! I have a feeling I'll be in deep freeze mode since I'm not used to that cold of weather lol. Warm clothes will be a must!

    Depending upon the season and if you both have passports the international Peace gardens are fairly close in Canada. In the summer and fall there are rodeos and outdoor plays. There are lots of hiking areas. My favorite in ND is Theodore Roosevelt national park. I'm not sure how much of that can still be hiked. Also, Bismark has some neat areas to explore. It depends upon how much time you both have to do things.

    I'm in Minot. This winter was more blizzards (trust me, we are just seeing color today after 2 days of blowing snow.) I like it here. Just have an open mind.
