I love living in Yukon, Oklahoma, so much! I have been doing so ever since I was born, and I've always felt very safe and welcomed here. It seems like everyone in town knows me, even though this town isn't that small! About 40,000 people live in Yukon, and that's no small amount, but it's amazing that it seems like everyone knows each other!
At my current job, even though it's still closed due to COVID-19, I feel such a warm, happy presence from everyone that came into our shop, and that's truly wonderful. Sometimes, people don't feel welcome, but that is not the case in Yukon. When our community goes through heartbreak, we all show our gratitude and love for whoever that person was, and that always warms my heart.
So, to put it short, Yukon is so welcoming, kind, and inclusive to each and every person that lives in its perimeters.

Yukon is a fast growing suburb of Oklahoma City. The town is very quiet and family friendly with an array of elementary schools fit for any growing or looking to grow families. The town itself is full of restaurants, shopping centers, and family fun. As well as healthcare facilities and growing businesses. If you're looking for a "small town" vibe but don't exactly want to give up the perks of city life, Yukon is the place to be!
When I first moved in o Yukon in middle school, I was very nervous because it was a white predominate based area, and their public schools were massive. But when I stated my first day at Yukon middle school, it was fantastic! All the kids and staff were respectful! Yukon as a city is very pleasant. Their crime rate is low, and the city is very clean! I feel safe living in Yukon, and all of my neighbors are nice!
