I love living in owasso. Its safe, expanding, friendly, and clean. There are tons of restaurants, shopping centers, and even a trolly. The only thing is there really isnt a night life in owasso, but there is in Tulsa which is only about a 20 minute drive! I have lived here my whole life and wouldnt want to be anywhere else.
As someone who has spent my entire life in Owasso, I cannot complain. The schools are very top notch and they value education. The community is very united in many ideas and the whole city has a very welcoming energy. The only downside of living in Owasso is that even though there is a large amount of commercial and business facilities, it is comprised mainly of neighborhoods and most big business jobs are offered in nearby cities like Tulsa. However, the brisk 20 minute drive to Tulsa, family friendly attitudes, and the variety of shopping centers and restaurants make Owasso a very enjoyable place to live.
