Oklahoma County Reviews

I have lived in Oklahoma County for almost all of my life. There are so many more options for my children and grandchildren than there were for me when I was growing up. The greater metropolitan area has increased the number of stores, restaurants and other venues over the last twenty years providing residents with various types of entertainment. Residents and visitors can check into either an economical motel, a bed & breakfast, or a luxurious hotel, as well as visit a state park, or camp at an area lake for the weekend. Oklahoma County is a great place to live!

There has been a lot of improvements since I have moved to Oklahoma. There has been a lot of buildings that have been revitalized into shops or apartment buildings. The schools, however, have not improved. In order for citizen's children to get a quality education they will have to either homeschool or pay for private school. I really wish the city would concern themselves more with education and less on "what the state's steak should be".
Oklahoma County is a very nice place to live, with lots of things to do and great things to see in the city. Various museums and parks in the heart of Oklahoma City, not to mention such diverse restaurants to dine at. It also has the nice rural side of the country with nice friendly faces always ready to greet you. One of the best things in this county is the price to live here, you get a big bang for your buck it is one the most cheapest places to live.
