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.

This is small town America at it's finest! I remember when it was a sleepy little town with windows open and doors unlocked. It has become a growing community for the young and old. Edmond offers all the conveniences of a major city, but still has the feel of a friendly wholesome place to raise your kids. From it's University of Central Oklahoma to outstanding high schools, Edmond offers much to choose from. There is a large selection of retirement communities and major hospitals right here. No matter what lifestyle you are seeking, it can all be found in Edmond. We put a smile on the map with the friendly faces you will encounter when entering any establishment in town. Business thrives here and so do the people. Come check us out!
I love Edmond! I live just on the edge of the Edmond city limits. I have never felt unsafe in Edmond. The shops are great. The variety of coffee shops is amazing. There are several places to buy groceries, depending on your needs. You can find your usual Target or Walmart or go to more health food specialized stores like Sprouts, Natural Grocers and Uptown Grocery. Edmond is a great place to live!
