   If you are struggling to find your answer, then your current residing city may not be providing you enough. Here are five answers to the question "what can your city do for you," and five reasons to consider moving to Fargo-Moorhead.

1.Location, Location, Location

   Moving to Fargo-Moorhead puts you right in the center of the nation, making it cheaper and faster to get to the cities you need to. For example, from Fargo to Chicago is only 650 miles, and from Fargo to Denver is only 950 miles. The Hector International Airport will convienientlly act as your hub to the rest of the nation and world.

2.Environmentally-friendly city

  Fargo is pleased to act as the largest city for entertainment, industry, and retail in North Dakota, and Western Minnesota. Although Fargo is becoming a major hub, it remains environmentally-friendly. According to The City of Fargo, "nearly 2,100 new street trees are planted each year." The Metro Transit works to reduce emmissions, and the City's waste management works to recycle, and reduce waste.

3.Oodles of Career potential

   According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the unemployment rate in Fargo, ND was 1.6% as of September 2017. In the same year, the national unemployment rate was 4.1%. Grow in your endeavors here, where there are pages and pages of jobs available in million and even billion dollar industries. 

4.Fertile land

   Fargo-Moorhead, and the Red River Valley has been reffered to as the "Breadbasket of the World." Ancient lakes and sediment has given the present-day Red River Valley some of the most fertile soil in the nation. North Dakota leads the nation in production for a dozen crops such as spring wheat and beans. Many of the groceries you will buy in Fargo come from just outside of the town.  

5. Culture built on excellence

   Go ahead and Google Image "Fargo." Go ahead, I'll wait... Chances are you see the Fargo Theater illuminating the night. Fargo-Moorhead is filled with an appreciation of two things, art and college football. On any given fall Saturday, you can window shop many art boutiques, and then cheer on the North Dakota State University Bison, Minnesota State University Moorhead Dragons, or the Concordia Cobbers, as they dominate the gridiron. Fargo-Moorhead is a melting pot for food; you will find knoephla soup, tamales, and everything in between. Fargo is the "City of parks" with outdoor city events that promote a healthy lifestyle.

   The wood chipper is nowhere to be found in the city; however, the community members won't mind filling you in on the nomenclature, Don'tcha know? We hope this will inspire you and yours to plan a trip to Fargo-Moorhead. The city where housing is affordable, the beer and winter is cold, and where the people wouldn't have it any other way, don'tcha know?
