    Reviewer kdlauney, “I didn’t have children while living at Grand Forks so I can’t answer that. But I have heard that the Family Activity Center on base is great for mom’s and babies/toddlers who aren’t old enough for school. It’s a place you can go to socialize your child with other kids around their age, where they can enjoy doing crafts and playing with others.”

    Reviewer kdlauney, “The Commissary is pretty small, and their produce department was awful! I usually ended up going to Target and grocery shopping there. Also, if you’re new to the area do yourself a favor and Urbanspoon restaurants in the area. Mi Mexico is the best Mexican (or Qadoba), Little Bankok has really good thai and sushi (we were stationed in CA for 5 years so I know my sushi and even I was pleasantly surprised), and Babylon had really good swarmas. L&M is the meat market in the area and they have some of the best meats… all I’m saying is you have to try them (their beer batter for fish is wonderful).”
