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

“As a military spouse originally from South Carolina, I was initially apprehensive about our move to Minot. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the vibrant community here. I’ve quickly fallen in love with its small-town charm and big-city amenities. What indeed won me over was the warmth and friendliness of the people. I love raising my children here and am happy to now call Minot my home. “

What I love about Minot

“Born in Minot and raised in North Dakota, I returned to the Magic City after earning my degree. I love this big, small town and all it offers—from a thriving and growing art scene to a downtown bursting with shops and places to experience different flavors. Living in Minot has also allowed me to connect more deeply with my Scandinavian heritage. I am proud to call this place ‘home.'”

What I love about Minot

As someone who grew up in a small town just outside of Minot, the thing I love most is the people in our community. There’s something special about how we work together, and we have a passion for learning about others and always strive to do more. I love the connections that can be made in Minot – whether it’s your first time visiting or you’re a local – we want to know about you and your story

What I love about Minot

“Originally hailing from Connecticut, I found my heart captured by the charm and warmth of Minot. Beyond my professional endeavors, I happily embrace the role of a proud mother to two spirited little boys who infuse my life with boundless joy and adventure. Juggling the demands of work and motherhood may keep me on my toes, but it’s a balancing act that I wouldn’t trade for anything else in the world.”
