Working in Miami
Miami Oklahoma is not a bad town. It is a college town. It does not hold a lot of high paying jobs. Many have to drive to larger cities to find adequate work, but with the cost of living is less expensive as larger cities. It is a good place if you are a student at NEO A&M college. If you like playing pokemon GO there are many pokestops, mostly at the college. Many fast food places to work or eat. Outside of Walmart there is not many "big chain" companies. There is also a train that cuts through the town and if you need to go somewhere across it can be quite a nuisance. However, if you like going to casinos there is plenty of them here. Buffalo Run is one many people go to as well as Stables casino. Both of them provide entertainment such as those looking for live music or stand-up comedy.
Miami is my hometown. I love this town and being a part of this community. I know that I always have people that I can count on if I need something. I have seen people of this community come together for people in a moments notice. I am so thankful for this town and the people of this community.
I have lived in Miami for 40 years now. Miami's economy took a hit in the 80's due to a major tire factory closing their operation. Leadership at that time had never planned on loosing this employer. Miami's economy has never really recovered since that time. Overall the people are friendly and it is a generally safe place to live. We do have a claim to fame with Route 66 passing through town and many tourists stopping on their journeys. The Coleman Theatre Beautiful, a circa 1929 jewel also draws many for tours of the ornate theater.
