Local News

Watford City, N.D was voted the nicest place in North Dakota. Reader’s Digest editors sifted through over 1,000 stories of kindness from across America to name 50 finalists, one from each state.

The “North Dakota Nice” nomination was from a woman that moved there from Maine. Read the full nomination here.

Reader’s Digest revealed the 50 “Nicest Places in America,” the result of a national crowd-sourced effort to uncover places where people are kind and treat each other with respect. 

“This year we sifted through over 1,000 stories of places where people stick together because of kindness, and these are the best from each state,” said Reader’s Digest Editor-in-Chief Bruce Kelley. “In doing so, we learned something amazing, which is that no matter what’s going on in the news or social media, the truth is that there’s goodness all around us. We hope these stories lift spirits and inspire all of us to be better neighbors, friends, and family.”
