I like Oklahoma City
- I've lived in OKC all my life. I find it very stoic and beautiful (compared to what it used to look like). The people here are great. They have a sense of work ethic and help others in need. I'm only 15 years old, but I find this place fantastic and its improving itself further. I'd give it 2 thumbs up and 5 stars.

Proud to be from OKC
- This is a great city and lots to do do if your from the ages of 10- 16 to 21+.... Everyone is always friendly and helpful but if you are looking for public transport or a free handout this is not your home... You must have a car and a job and you will be fine.....anyone who thinks OKC can't come together needs to look at every May that we are all worried to death.... Bad weather is about 40 days a year nd that's it,as far as are akes look at ten killer,Murray,texoma,eufaula,broken bow,etc... We have gorgeous lakes other thn draper and thunder bird

Always thought I'd Leave
- I was born and raised in OKC and as a teenager and young adult I always swore I would move away. After traveling the world and seeing the rest Iof the states I realized that OKC was the place I needed to be. Yes, the people are amazing, always willing to go out of their way to give you a hand and being genuinely kind to others is the standard. But the city has grown and many diverse areas have come to light. So manyhidden gems in stores and restaurants. Low cost of living and I just bought a beautiful home I couldn't afford anywhere else. The storms are something you learn to live with. Tornados miss you more often then you even see the rain from that storm. But you know that when a big storm hits, strangers will be there to help you pick up the pieces. There are a lot of far right conservatives, but as a democrat I find that there is a place for everyone here and most of the time theres a general respect for opposing political and religious beliefs. just have to seek the like minded.

new to okc
- The people are very polite, with a few nasties. The women are beautiful. A melting pot of people who seem to get along well. Restaurants and good food is everywhere, with every type of food imagined. I have never seen so many schools, pawn shops, churches, and stores on every corner. The sky is beautiful, except when the many storms come.

OK is NOT OKAY
- Oklahoma sucks. i have lived in CA, OR, WA, TX FL, MI, VA, SC and now i live in OK. i have been around the world in the Navy 3 times and to 26 different countries most of them more that once and i do have to say that oklahoma is by far the worst place to live. the people are fat and ignorant, they drive like crap, the weather is horrid 50 out of 52 weeks a yr, education blows, freeways are the worst in the country, the lakes are huge mud puddles the tallest tree is about 20 ft tall i think i would enjoy living in a mud hut in yemen more than living here. Dont even get me started on tornado season... OKC BLOWS avaiod it at all cost. im only here because the military makes me. as soon as i can im outta here. even if its to be a bum in another state.

OKC is OK By Me!
- I had the opportunity to visit OKC in April of '13. Only stayed overnight on my way out to AZ from PA. LOVED the city! It was clean, well-designed, a very manageable size and looked very pretty approaching on I-40 from the east. The new Devon Tower is impressive - and tangeable proof of the city's Renaissance. Bricktown and downtown are awesome. The people are among the friendliest and most helpful I've ever encountered. The restaurants are AWESOME. And the cost of things is really good when compared to the east coast. I'd move there in a heartbeat! I found the people to be very pleasant and easty to talk to. A-Alley and the Asian District were very interesting finds! I'm SO impressed with OKC! All those complaining about "nothing to do" or "obese people" there. Get real! There are SO MANY things to do there! And weight is an issue EVERYWHERE in the US! Get over yourselves. Both coasts SUCK out loud! OKC is the place for me. Just gotta get the wife to buy-in! :)

European Opinion :)
- Hello all. I'm European, wife is American. Being in other states, OH, IL, TX and recently we moved to OKC for work. I really like how polite people are. What I don't like is the way they drive. Very dangerous-fast. Also having the red light AFTER the road junction is very confusing to me, to calculate when I need to start hitting the brake. Also the wind all the time is annoying. I've noticed people are very obese but that's not my issue, it's their life. Country music becomes a little boring too, I wish other kind of music were available. A big pos is the city block structure, very nice planned, easy to find your way around the city. After all, I give more + than - mainly because of people being polite, knowing how Europeans are :-(

oklahoma is okay
- I was brought up in Oklahoma City, it's true Oklahoma don't have a lot to do, but it's the best place to bring up your family. One thing I can tell you Oklahoma is not for single people. If you're not married don't move to Oklahoma, you will stay single for a long time. Good schools and low paying jobs. In expensive college, if you want to own a degree Oklahoma is a good place to own a degree. God Bless everyone that read this.

- I've lived in Oklahoma many many years. Lived in a few other states for a few years. Been around the world a few times. Been to the largest cities in the world. People are basically the same. Yada yada yada. You hate Oklahoma for the politics and religion? The states you love have the most representatives and swear on the bible while tapping their foot in bathrooms or taking bids on open seats. You liberals are doing the same thing the republicans are doing to you. There is no measurable difference between you group of voters. Nothing to do? How much extra cash do you people have to do the things you speak of on a daily, weekly, monthly basis? Lay on the beach? That gets old. The bars and clubs? I didn't know alcohol was different in other states. Drugs? Your right, meth isn't as fancy as cocaine. Culture? You people couldn't care less about culture. Education? One of the lowest, stable unemployment rates in the country. Hey, big people like to eat. Your subjective views are unfounded.

Loved Visiting OKC
- I recently was in Oklahoma City on business....and was pleasantly surprised at how nice it was. The people were very friendly and the city was the cleanest city I have ever been in. It seriously made me think "was this place designed and built by Walt Disney?"....I will be visiting again on work travel...and look forward to it. Downtown area (Bricktown) was really awesome. I cannot say enough about how pleasant the drive through the city was and the people....I love southern hospitality (I am from the Northeast part of country....where most people are self centered and ignorant unfortunately). Oh...and the ladies.....I could not believe how many BEAUTIFUL woman I saw....everywhere I went.....what are you guys feeding the ladies down there? Beauty potions!

been here for two months hate it.
- I moved here from Los Angeles. For a 19 year old from cali this place is dirt its way too cold, there is nothing to do and you have to have a car in order to get around here it sucks. The people are friendly compared to california and the low cost of living is amazing. but I can see why its so dull and boring this state needs more life more buildings more trees more things to do my plan is to get a job here and transfer back to LA I hate oklahoma.

I HATE THE CITY THAT I HAVE BEEN BORN AN
- As much as I have been born,and raised this state,and city is oppressive.The transit is oppressive.The people are oppressive.See this is where people are right about people here being hypocrites see if you need a ride to church you either have to get your own way,because the pastors wont get anybody to pivk anybody up.You have to live in their zone they call it in order to get picked up for church.Some churches don't have vans period.Some churches wont give me a ride period.See you got to be a little kid,a female,have a car,or some other form of transportation in order to get to church.This can also be applied to me just getting around other places other than church.People don't really like givin rides unless you are a blood relative,a close friend,or etc.This has been a hostile state,and environment since I have been born.I wish that I were born in Chicago,New York,Memphis where I could make headway with people,and the transportation would be at my advantage.

been here for 2 years
- I'm from Tucson, Az. I've lived in San Diego, Orlando, Savannah, Phoenix, & been to Mexico & Europe. The only people who like it here are people who have lived here there entire lives. They don't know any better. It is boring & ugly. There are no mountains, forests, oceans & there lakes are brown & gross. People are polite but not open to anyone who is not like them. They are close-minded, ignorant & arrogant. The weather is often bad, so for an outdoor lover like myself it sucks. There are a lot of places to eat & strip malls. The schools in the surrounding areas of OKC are decent. There is a huge emphasis on sports. People here only know sports & church. I cannot wait to leave. It is the ugliest & most boring place I've ever lived.
