Diverse Community In Every Way 4 rating By Anonymous ( May 14, 2018) What I like most about West Fargo is the atmosphere, I think it has to be the most inclusive and friendliest if any towns I’ve ever lived. The community itself is also extremely diverse, with the added benefit of a great public school system. With everything going on in the cou ...Read More ntry the students are safe and the staff does an excellent job in taking care of them.

Being a community first town, there are a lot of opportunities to meet neighbors. There are gatherings like this in the summer and winter, and regualrular include New Neighbor Nights. We celebrate the different people who moved into the community, in addition to their cultures and some of what we have to offer.

There’s one mall in town as well as a couple of restaurants and stores, of which reflect the diversity in the town. There’s also a sky zoo and one of my favorite things, several movie theaters. We have a fairground close to the cities edge where concerts are held quite often. I love West Fargo, and hope you do to. Read Less
