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!
My only major complaint about Durant, OK at this time is it is growing so fast! Commutes during peak hours can sometimes be frustrating, but it is nothing compared to the city traffic. I am just spoiled and always anxious! :)
