Williston is a great place to raise children - the community takes great pride in providing for the children's needs both academically and recreational.

We have beautiful summer weather with nice warm days and cool evenings. Spring and fall are lovely and winters vary. Some years we get a lot of snow, but sometimes we may be wondering if we'll have a white Christmas. The hunting and fishing are great. You can be out on the lake in 30 minutes!

Williston has 3 golf courses including the famous "Links of North Dakota" at the Red Mike Recreation Area. It's a very active community with lots of organization to get involved in if you wish. You don't have to worry about being bored when you live in Williston!
