Although Blanchard is a small town, it has plenty of the necessities close to home. It's a five minute drive to go to the grocery store, library, dentist, gas station, hardware store, etc. Although it's limited in its selections it still has some variation of restaurants to choose from. For example, Sonic, Subway, Boomerang, a Chinese place, a Mexican place as well as food trucks that show up every now and then. And while it's limited in entertainment and things to do, the town compensates that with held events such as fairs and festivals.
Overall, its a cozy little town that meets the needs of anyone asking for a peaceful quiet life.
Review Blanchard
I have lived in the Blanchard, OK area almost my entire life. I love living out there. I went to Bridge Creek Schools and even my children went there for a few years. It is so peaceful and quiet. I also love that I'm able to see the stars.
Living in Blanchard has been a huge blessing to me. I have been able to grow up with some of my best friends. Not only have I met some of the most influential people in my life, but the majority of my family resides here too. I would definitely choose to live in Blanchard again. I believe that Blanchard will continue to grow, but it will keep it's homey feeling that draws people in.
