This area is one of the cheapest areas to live in in America. With that being said there are also a numerous amount of drugs in the area, mostly methamphetamines. It has its good parts and bad parts, just like any other city or town does. it is home though. I honestly can't imagine living anywhere else. It has a beautiful landscape and history, with a neat story to tell. This area has largely increased in the last several years economically and with population.
Review Arkoma
Crimes in this area aren't significantly high, but when someone does commit a crime it is for weird and/or horrid things. The area is close to a lot of country and wooded areas and it seems more horrifying things happen there. The police here are decent, although they tend to be a little crooked and would let someone bribe them out of a ticket. I don't necessarily feel unsafe in this area unless you land yourself on the wrong side of town which can make someone a little uneasy.
The general atmosphere is laid back. I would choose to live here again, the schools faculty is friendly and easy to deal with. I see this area growing in the near future.
