Mandan, ND - Big City In Big North Dakota

I recently moved out of Mandan, ND, and I found it to be a nice town to live in for a while. Mandan, ND is located across the river from New Brunswick, and so it is one of the few placed in North Dakota where I could go to enjoy an active nightlife. However, I still found the city to be small.

The best places in Mandan, ND are the bars near the Missouri River. Places like the Last Call Bar were a regular destination, and I loved to go on a walk near the river after a night out with my friends. This area was right next to downtown New Brunswick, and I ended up living there so I could feel like I was in a city.

I found living in Mandan, ND to be a good thing to do after college. I got a job working at the local hospital, and I liked being able to live their as a young professional. I ended up moving for a better job in a bigger city.
