Bristow is a quiet town in Oklahoma that is perfect for those who want to settle down and live peacefully. However, those who wish to have a secure job with potential to advance their career and themselves should stay away. It is a community that is deeply rooted in. Those who come from Bristow, Oklahoma generally stay there - forever; as do their kids, grandkids and even great grandkids.
The area is overall pretty good especially compared to other parts of town. I only know of the families around me and they are great people; the other families keep to themselves or are never home. I would possibly move back considering its a safe place to be. I would consider this place as in between the wealthy part and the poor side of town, thought the way things seem to be looking the future doesn't look very bright for the community and town as a whole.
Bristow is a small town with not a lot going on outside of high school athletics. I have to travel for almost everything I want to do. The biggest thing to happen to Bristow in the past few years was the Polar Express train ride at Christmas time but the location of that ride was changed to Stillwater, Ok.
