Oklahoma City is easy to navigate, has great active things to do, ie: lakes, extensive sidewalks, parks, and safety. We have had a penny sales tax voted on by all the voting public to upgrade nearly every aspect of the City. Libraries, Fairground, Arenas, sidewalks, Senior activity centers, Roads, and the coolest downtown area. We have The Oklahoma River which provides many sports activities. The Pre-Olympic Rowing event takes place here. Many music venues are in the downtown area as well as our NBA, Thunder, team. Another "play" area is located between Oklahoma City and Edmond (popular town that joins OKC on the North). Top Golf, D-Bat, Main-Event, Cabela's Sports Center, and a lot of food options. Come take a look!

Great city! There is a lot of beautiful stuff in Oklahoma City. Nevertheless, Oklahoma City is known for some crime issues. In my opinion, it depends in what neighborhood you settle in. I personally haven't had violent crimes around my area. For the most part, Oklahoma City is a beautiful, affordable, sporty, and quiet place. The people are usually nice. The main school district in Oklahoma (Oklahoma City Public Schools) Is a decent school district. In a scale of 1 to 10, I would give this 8.5/10
Oklahoma City has alot to offer. It’s a city that is very family friendly, diverse, has many job opportunities and most peoples job commutes are 30 minutes or less. There is a lot to do around the city now compared to 8-10yrs ago! The Thunder coming to Oklahoma City has really helped to change the face of Oklahoma City! At the end of the day when you spend time in Oklahoma City you will meet lots of friendly people who will make you feel at home.
