Durant could really benefit economically if it could attract more stable businesses, and diversify their business opportunities. Street repairs are rare. Entertainment and nightlife are non-existent, aside from the casino life. It does offer attractive land lots for farmers or ranchers, lots of property on the outskirts of town and potential to grow larger, if the city would welcome more businesses to take root. Durant is currently focused on local markets. Good town for someone wanting to retire.

This is an industrial town. There are very limited activities for families and/or social activities. Limited parks with no shade and high temperatures make it impossible for families with small children to play outdoors during summertime. There are very few restaurants and most of the residents will drive to Sherman, Texas for dining and entertainment. Durant does have a portion of Lake Texoma running through it, so fishing is an option. For the most part, this is a place where people live who are involved in certain industries (casino, steel mill, medical, etc.,), and not for young singles or families.
I love going to school here, i am a freshman at SOSU. I am originally from Texas but coming here to Durant is just like home. I love going to see main street and getting to explore the city more when i have the time. Its definitely my home away from home!
