I moved to Yukon, OK in 2002. When I moved here it was small. Almost 20 years later it has really grown with large neighborhoods,a new high school hosting 9-12 grades, major super markets and stores like Target, Sprouts, Academy Sports, Walmart and a brand new Neighborhood Walmart and more in our new strip malls and shopping areas. It will not be difficult to find a quick bite to eat on Garth Brooks Blvd having everything from fried chicken, Chinese, Italian, Mexican, and Japanese cuisine all in one area! Yukon is great in location neighboring cities and towns like Bethany, Mustang, and El Reno.

Nice-ish ,slow small town outside of OKC area. Schools are low in diversity and are full of bully type mindset in the students,teaching staff. Lacks teacher involvement in reaching out to students to create a positive changes in student lives, every student program at the school is expensive ranging from $50-250. Lacks gifted student classes and activities. Lacks entertainment or nightlife. Lacks warmth in the community as a whole as well as diversity. If your use to a active, outgoing, culturally diverse lifestyle then this isn't the place for you. And a big negative is that they are always drilling for oil which have now started causing earthquakes more often. Upside about this city is that you have plenty of time think,read,start projects at home and have plenty of time to finish them, plenty of time to catch up on Television shows and movies and best of all if you don't like talking to people where you live then this a great place for that too.
I have lived in Yukon my whole life. In just the short span of my life i have seen my hometown expand. Many new housing areas, restaurant, hotels, shopping centers, etc. I really love it here the people are for the most part super nice and always happy to help. The school system has been changing up a little bit since building new schools, but they handled everything very well. This year our high school football team has been doing better than past years. Our rugby team that i once was apart of is awesome, second in state for the last four years. I see greatness for the future of Yukon and hope to raise my kids in this great city.
