What I love about Minot

“I’m a North Dakota girl and Minot has been my home for over 20 years. For me, Minot is the perfect size community. It’s small enough so I can get to any place in town within 15 minutes but large enough to have access to excellent shopping, dining, and entertainment options. I love the grit that the people of Minot have! We are a resilient community that has survived and thrived through some tough times. The future is bright in Minot and I’m grateful to call it home.”

What I love about Minot

“Minot has been my home for most of my life, so I have LOTS of reasons to love Minot! But I can easily say that hands down what I love most about Minot is the people who live here! I love how kind and caring the people are and I admire the community’s ability to come together and help one another, both during times of adversity and times of triumph.  Minot has also proven to be an excellent place for my children to grow up with great schools, parks, and activities for us to enjoy all year round! We are lucky to call Minot home, and to be a part of this wonderful, growing community!”

What I love about Minot

“As a proud military spouse, originally from South Carolina, I must admit that I was very upset when my husband let me know we were being stationed in Minot, ND.  What I have discovered though is that this town absolutely does not deserve the unfair reputation it’s been given. Coming from a city of almost half a million, I was resigned to losing out on the restaurants, conveniences, and things to do, that I had grown accustomed to.  However, one of the many things that pleasantly surprised me when I arrived was the abundance of delicious restaurants, variety of shopping, and a list of events and goings-on, that could rival the “big city” that I came from.  More than anything though, I fell in love with the people of Minot. I discovered a helpful and pleasant demeanor throughout all of my interactions around town, from our shop owners and public servants to my coworkers and neighbors.  It did not take long before I started to feel less like I was at a stationing and more like I was at home. I adore the people of Minot and I have fallen in love with the small-town feel while appreciating the big town amenities.  The kindness and welcoming nature of this community has been overwhelming and not only am I excited to be a part of this amazing, growing place, but am proud to call Minot my home.”
