Grand Forks (and all of its surrounding communities) has always been a home—a casual and unrushed place, where kids still can walk to school and families truly care about one another—there have never been so many activities, support services and events available to everyone as there are now. “North Dakota Nice” typically refers to the people—who are kind, generous and respectful—I think the phrase really speaks to our state as a whole: North Dakota is a nice place to live.

We found those bigger and better things right here in Grand Forks
We had Grand Forks pegged as a temporary stop on the way to bigger and better things. The truth is, we found those bigger and better things right here in Grand Forks. Everything from the significant professional opportunity, vibrancy, and family friendly atmosphere led to this decision and we are here to stay!
Grand Forks Region Values
Whether it’s a personal or a general desire to give back, Grand Forks region residents truly feel a civic duty. And more important, they act on it, day in and day out. In Grand Forks, not only will my daughter receive the tools and skills to contribute to the world, but also she’ll absorb the values that’ll help her lead the world.
Better a community with cold toes and a warm heart
It’s unbelievable for a community our size. People really love and care about this town. It’s why it bounced back from the flood and will be even better in 20 years. Better a community with cold toes and a warm heart.
This city is gifted at showing hospitality
My husband Max and I moved to Grand Forks in February, and we have been blown away by this city’s hospitality. Sometimes it’s easiest to see the beauty of a place when you are an outsider, seeing it for the first time. This city is gifted at showing hospitality; share that with one another.

No place I would rather be
We have so many wonderful people who devote their time and talents to make this town our home. There is a place for everyone here and to my own surprise there is no place I would rather be. Really, not even in winter!
