Allen is small and pretty boring. Everyone knows everyone, this is a good thing and also a bad thing. There's not much to do, but watch grass grow and that's pretty fun. I love Allen and love living here!
Review Allen
Allen is a quiet small town in Rural Oklahoma. It is just big enough for a few stores and a school. I am very pleased living here in this wonderful community. I've never felt more comfortable anywhere else!
Humid summers, Bitter winters, gorgeous fall and spring.
