The people around Broken Arrow are very nice and the restaurants are also excellent! In addition to restaurants and people, the "noise pollution" is very low compared to more populated cities. The only thing that could be improved would be the recycling service in Broken Arrow.

Broken Arrow is a very enjoyable place to live. Broken Arrow is one of those towns where you feel it has a little bit of everything. There are plenty of places to shop, eat, and hang around town. However, the north side of town has more to offer than the south side of town. The north side is almost fully developed with the majority of housing, shops, and restaurants being located there. The south side still needs some attention when it comes to restaurants and shops; although, the south has a few nature parks and a sports complex that are available. Besides the north and the south, the city is a great place to live overall. The city leaders and the city people are nice enough. The schools have a ton of spirit and are pretty great with no real problems are ever heard about them. The best part of the city is that you get a taste of a bigger city but small enough that a person will not get overwhelmed.
I've grown up here for the past 17 years, and I can honestly say that it is one of the most boring places on planet Earth. Although I can't wait to leave for college I've realized things I've never thought about it before. The streets are easy to navigate, I can get anything I want within a 10-20 minute drive, and the people are like no other. A lot of Broken Arrow resident's views may be conservative but you can find people with views similar to yours almost anywhere. Broken Arrow is new enough that diversity may not be apparent but it certainly is there. It's new enough that it's not entirely hick but still maintains that southern charm. As I near my end here, I realize that this will always be home. No matter where I end up I will always remember Broken Arrow as a place of family.
