Stillwater is a great place. It's a wonderful city especially if you're an OSU Cowboy fan. It gets super busy around football season! The locals enjoy having a break from all the "hustle and bustle" during the summer breaks. Stillwater offers a variety of restaurants, stores and parks. Overall, it's a very friendly city and very accommodating to visitors.

Stillwater is a small college town home to America's brightest orange! Stillwater, Oklahoma, is filled with the friendliest people and overflowing with small town tradition. Theres nothing quite like Stillwater on a football game day; stores close down, streets are shut off, and people from all over come out to support our boys in orange dressing up and tailgating in style. Nights are filled with dancing, movies, and concerts, and pretty days are spent outdoors at boomer lake. Ask anyone and they will agree, Stillwater can't be beat.
I love working in Stillwater, Ok! I work at Hearing Group and we just love the people that come in here. We enjoy the many restaurants in the area and all the events that the city has. I lived here years ago and am considering moving back. There is always something going on especially during the summer and of course the football season!
