Bartlesville is a growing town in Northwestern Oklahoma with a lot of culture and promise. It is known as a retirement town but there are many activities to participate in! Downtown Bartlesville has many historic buildings. Frank Lloyd Wrights "Price Tower" is located here. The Community Center always has fun events and shows to attend. There is a Phillips 66 museum that is wonderful for all ages. The mall has several clothing shops for all ages. Students spend Friday and Saturday nights socializing there. The school system is rated 6A and has always done well.
I loved how safe the city was. The Pathfinder is a biking and walking path that winds its way through the city. I loved taking walks on it with my family. The high school even does some training for their track team on that path. The community encourages the arts and cultural expression and discovery. There are concerts and art shows, opportunities for kids to get involved with musicals and festivals for people of different ethnicities and cultures. The school system is amazing and there are churches available for every denomination. The city is a place where people of different cultures, backgrounds and ethnicities are welcomed and find their home.
Everyone is friendly in this town. There are just enough things in Bartlesville to stay entertained, but not so many that one would be distracted from academics, professional, or child-rearing endeavors. Much like the rest of Oklahoma, I would like to see more allowances in the funding of education in Bartlesville.
