I've lived here my entire life! Edmond is a cute little town that while isn't particularly exciting is safe and quaint. There is a lot of traffic but call me nostalgic I just enjoy the area a lot. People around here are as nice as conservative southerners can be, airs pretty clean. No one knows how to drive in rain or snow but they at least move out of the way. Also it's. A touch hard to find jobs in town, but that's mostly due to the college.

I love Edmond. There is always something interesting going on downtown. There's culture, lots of interesting shops and restaurants, but it still has a small town feel. Everything I need is nearby. I love the amount of parks, and they are all beautiful! Most of the city is extremely well kept and clean and there are sidewalks everywhere!
Overall, Edmond is a great place to live, whether you are a college student, family with young kids, or someone looking for a place to retire. Edmond has grown quite rapidly in the last decade and has expanded with many different housing options, including retirement and assisted living communities and apartments geared toward students. Edmond public schools consistently earn high letter grades on the federal rating scale, and many families move to Edmond just for the educational opportunities. The dining and entertainment options here have expanded greatly, offering both top dollar and more affordable picks for residents. Edmond also has several well-maintained parks, hiking trails, and a dog park that I frequent often and personally love. My few complaints would be the traffic- since Edmond's population has risen above 900,000, drive home traffic has gotten considerably worse, and you have to watch out for inconsiderate drivers.
