    It is a nice area for outdoor recreation, but it is very limited on shopping. It does not have the opportunity for cultural activities. Overall it is a very beautiful place to live.
    Review Broken Bow
    I do not necessarily worry about living here. The police are not really responsive. Thank goodness there isn't a high crime rate.
    Utilities tend to be high, but rent is reasonable.
