Small town, close to cities that have more. Growing all the time. Most things are within walking distance and we have a little bit of public transport - 8-5 M-F no holidays. Schools are really good and teachers care for students and teach, regardless of the low OK pay.

I really like the importance of family in Durant, and although some families are downright terrible, I believe it takes only a little education and social change to make things better. We are not far from making this part of Oklahoma a very productive and great place for families. I hope that I'll be able to initiate some change. Places are cheap around here, and the minimum wage at many places is rising thanks to the local casino being great entrepreneurs.
I like Durant you have the large town feel with a small town attitude. You have plenty of things to do in this town, but people still stop and talk to friends and ask how are you doing or how is your mother. Things that you do not get in larger cities. It is 3 miles from Lake Texoma, has Southeastern Oklahoma State University, and is only 70 miles from Dallas which is good for crazy night life.
