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!
Edmond Oklahoma is a very nice place to live. I have lived in Edmond for most of my life and I love it here! There is never a moment I feel unsafe. There are plenty cops in the Edmond Area! The houses are very nice and most of the neighborhoods are well-kept. The people of Edmond are very friendly. The schools are excellent! There is a lot of parent involvement. Most businesses in Edmond are doing very well. There are expensive restaurants, and there are also cheap ones as well. There is lots of landscaping all over Edmond. Lots of the beautiful landscaping is on the medians of busy streets. They are always well-manicured. It may seem that there is a lot of money in Edmond, however it is a place for everyone to feel at home.
