Incredible community that is growing fast and well. The city’s motto, “A great place to grow” is no lie. We have a cool downtown that is adding more amazing restaurants and things to do! The Edmond Railyard food court place is really great so far (and it’s not even finished yet!) It’s a humble town right outside the big city and has many similarities tho OKC. Affordable homes, kid-friendly community, and a “great place to grow”.

I have lived in Edmond, OK for 10 years and I am proud to call it home. It s a very family-friendly area, safe, lots of chain restaurants and shops, incredible schools that people come from out of state to attend, and quick access to anything you need. Anything and everything in Edmond is from 5-15 minutes away from wherever you are. Great neighborhoods, is constantly expanding with new growth and building, and high police patrol. Highly recommend to anyone looking into living here!
It's a great place to raise a family. Great school system. Friendly people. Lots of parks and family friendly activities.
The city planners appreciate art and Terri to incorporate it into the landscape to be enjoyed by everyone who visits.
The nightlife has never been great, but it is improving. There are more places opening up where you can enjoy a drink in a more adult environment.
During the spring and summer, Heard on Hurd takes place. This is a monthly event of food trucks and live entertainment that the whole family can enjoy.
The downtown arts festival takes place every May and draws artists from around the the country. It's a great weekend of fun and activity for three whole family.
There are even wineries in Edmond. Clauran Ridge offers award winning wine, wine tastings, and unique dining experiences in a beautiful setting. Perfect place for stylish weddings and casual get togethers.
