OKC, not bad, not bad at all.
Hubby worked in OKC for the last 5 years till his company was bought. We have now relocated back home to Dallas.
I have lived in many many places, so many, I stopped counting years ago. But, I don't think I have ever lived anywhere quite like OKC.
Oklahoma is a very unique state, having their partnerships with the American Indian tribes, Oklahoma laws are very unique. Which is what got me interested in Real Estate Law in the first place.
I also think it's one of the most beautiful states in America as I still own property in Southern Oklahoma, as I have for many many years.
What's great about OKC is it's located right in the middle of the Country. If you like to travel like we do, its so easy to just get in the car & drive anywhere you like in under 10 hours. Santa Fe, Taos, Denver, Boulder, Hot Springs, New Orleans, Padre Island, Pensacola Beach, Kansas, Tennessee etc., we enjoyed the convenience of traveling from OKC to many places quickly & cheaply.
OKC is a very cute little city & it's very cheap to live there. There are several tiny little neighborhoods surrounding downtown to choose from. All so picturesque, you would think it's right out of a Norman Rockwell painting.
Downtown OKC has many cool buildings that I LOVE. Bricktown is very cool with its historic brick buildings like the "Deep Deuce" where Jazz was born.
The Skirvin hotel, the only great hotel in OKC, is one of my favorite hotels in the country. They also have one big skyscraper called "The big penis." You can't miss it. It's the only one.
When we first arrived, asking directions was hilarious. People would say things like, "go down this street & turn by "the big penis" or he works in "the big penis" or meet us on top of "the big penis" LOL There is a cafe/restaurant on top of "the big penis" but it sucks, pun intended.
The story behind "the big penis" is that there was suppose to be two buildings but they couldn't afford to build the other one so they just have the one "big penis" protruding into the sky.
There are not very many great restaurants or much nightlife everything closes by 10pm pretty much. If you are used to living in a big city like Dallas, like we are, you will have to travel to find great shopping & dining. The shopping is terrible. No good clothing stores or grocery stores. Period. Make Amazon your friend.
There are at least 5 great restaurants & this last year things were getting even better in the restaurant scene. I have high hopes in the near future for OKC's restaurant scene.
I have to be honest & admit it was quite boring to live in OKC, however, bc there were not many places to go or eat out very much we did save like a gazillionTrillion pesos. I saved so much moo-la that I even took a 8 month vacation in Mexico.
Most places we have lived we hated. OKC was a pleasant surprise. A great little city that seems to have a great future ahead of it. With the new Convention Center being built & further downtown development in the works, my prediction is it's going to be BOMB in 10 years.
In the meantime, if you like to stay home & save tons of money, this is a great little city to live in.
Good Luck OKC! Thanks for having us, it was very lucrative indeed, but our home, like our hearts, will forever be in Texas.
God bless y'all & God bless Oklahoma.

Do you like big city infrastructure without any of the traffic?
Do you like having a city lifestyle without any of the population?
Do you enjoy having a rich cultural heritage of oil, gold, and Native Americans?
Come give them a try!
I've never seen a city that should be by a river but isn't until I've been to OKC.
Was impressed at how big and how dead it is. Maybe when the Thunder is away, so are the people who live in Oklahoma city.
Not sure but had a good time.
