Oklahoma City is a great place to make a fresh start. Entertainment is not as apparent here as it is in other big cities but the avenues to a decent job and education seem openly accessible. I've lived here two years working in the banking, restaurant, and hotel business simultaneously. Originally the goal was to just get a foot in the ground. Now that has been accomplished, I'm seeking to further my education to build a life here. The cost to live is affordable compared to the traffic ridden big cities I was originally accustomed to. It feels like I can actually breather from time to time. Not to say OKC wouldn't benefit from some improvements! Every time I drive through the Arbuckles and Paul's Valley I'm reminded of the history and beauty of the state. While the economic climate is not at its best in terms of state budget constrictions, the social capital of its people make me hopeful for a bright future here.
Review Oklahoma City
Well, I have lived in Oklahoma City for 20+ years and I love it. Oklahoma City is an up and coming city with a new lease on a hip and young lifestyle. Which includes a river walk downtown to rival San Antonio's infamous river walk as well as a one of kind manmade whitewater rafting simulator and outdoor center which also includes a 200 ft zip all open to the public. It also has 3 sepersate districts Deep Duece, Bricktown, Midtown all with amazing boutique shopping local eateries wineries and points of interest such as art galleries, libraries, and shops of all kinds. Another one is the Paseo Arts district where you can take classes in making your own pottery, jewelry and your own clothes too! Not to mention our recently new NBA addition team The Oklahoma City Thunder in the newly remodeled Cox Convention Center. Oklahoma City is a city on the verge of greatness in my eyes so come on down and take a look around for yourself and see what great things yo can find here in OKC!
I love living in Oklahoma City! The heartbeat of the city is food, fun, & people! Our NBA team, the Thunder, is super important to almost any Oklahoman you meet. We are also BIG into college sports! Our downtown & Bricktown offer so much in terms of food & fun it's crazy! You could spend an entire weekend here & not see it all. We have a neighborhood for every type of family & desire. Modern, big, small, cozy, historic, and more. Everyone is sure to find what they're looking for here in Oklahoma City, OK.
