24/7 Wall St. recently released a list of the fastest growing cities in the US, and while most are in the warmer regions of the country, there are a few in the Midwest and two in North Dakota.

While we are in the dead of winter, and nice warm city does seem very appealing. The top 5 of the fastest growing cities are-

  1. The Villages, FL
  2. Myrtle Beach-Conway-North Myrtle Beach, SC-NC
  3. Midland, TX
  4. Austin, TX
  5. Cape Coral-Fort Myers, FL

There are many things that can cause population growth including warm weather, economy, retirement and jobs.

It would be the jobs that placed two North Dakota cities in the top 20.

#13 is Fargo and #11 Bismarck. A great economy and job growth are the two driving factors that placed North Dakota on the list.

You can see the entire list here.
