Durant Reviews

26 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.

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! :)
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.
