Durant Reviews

23 reviews
All Categories
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.

Durant is a beautiful city in Oklahoma states. Durant has the role of the headquarters of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma and role of the college town since the city has Southeastern Oklahoma State University. Durant is also known as the Magnolia capital of Oklahoma. The city is very peaceful, beautiful, but is developing every day.
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.
