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.
Blanchard has been my home for years. I have attended Blanchard schools for fourteen years and it is an excellent place for an education. The town is fairly quite. The town puts on fun and exciting celebrations for all holidays. There are never any issues with safety. Kids are everywhere but never cause any trouble. There are enough small businesses to sustain a family and Norman and Chickasa are no more than thirty minutes away. You have everything you want and need in a home without any costs.
