I've lived in Bartlesville for 30 years. It has the nicest residents and is the perfect, safe town to raise your kids! We recommend Bartlesville to all our friends who don't want big city life, but want the more calm, mid-size city living.

Small town friendly atmosphere. Christian values. Easy to quickly get from place to place. You can cross town in 10-15 minutes! The shopping options are limited, but Owasso is less than a half hour away. So it is no problem to find good shopping there. Bartlesville is also smog free.
Bartlesville Oklahoma used to be a nice town for retirees, employees of Conocophillips, and your run of the mill family. However, in recent years the decline of the town has been anything but gradual. Driving around town you will find an abundance, and current construction, of churches and hotels. Bartlesville is separated into what the locals call the 'East Side' and the 'West Side' and are separated by some type of bridge at every crossing. The High School is # 2,377 in national ranking and 25.1 out of 100 for college readiness. In the past couple of years there has been a rise in crime and the area considered 'most dangerous' in Bartlesville is right by the High School. If you wish for a place to stay for a night or a couple of days there are plenty of Hotels and Motels to choose from. If you wish to move here, the sudden availability of rentals and houses for sale signs should keep you occupied and give you plenty of options.
