Fargo, North Dakota

Fargo is a small city, around 90000 people in size. However, there is much going on due to college students that go to school here. The town doesn't have much entertainment to offer, but it has tons of stores and business'. The city is very nice during the summer, with bright sunny weather and not too hot. Winter is when it sucks though, It is snowing all the time and a bummer. (I guess depending on the person, I hate the cold) Overall, its a nice place to live for awhile, but not worth moving to forever.
