Duncan is a small town south of Oklahoma City. The town is a very nice, quiet town. The school here is not the best but the other activities in town are great. Main Street Duncan is one of the main attractions in town. The small businesses along the street are very nice and accept everyone. There is other places in town like fast foods, dance buildings, restaurants, and soccer/football teams. The town overall is a super nice and comfortable and a great place to visit in the future.

I love the people here and how everyone comes together as a community. Id likes to see habitat for humanity to come to help us rebuild all the condemned and abandonr=ed houses rebuilt so we can help get a lot of the homeless people off the streets. I believe that you;d help a lot with cleaning up our community and fighting the war against crime, drugs, homelessness, and abandoned pets
I've lived in Duncan for a little over 13 years. It's a very good town, no crime happens...Ever. literally..It's a great place to raise a family, the only downside is, there isn't much job opportunities, you either work at a bank, fast food place, restuaunt, pharmacy, or Walmart. But I love it because of the lack of crime and good schools. It also has a good comunity! Thumbs up for Duncan 👍
