Moving to Oklahoma?
Good call! Don’t believe the stereotypes -- Oklahoma may be cowboy country, and that wind may indeed come whippin’ down the plains, but there’s also so much to discover and do in the Sooner State. Whether you choose to relocate to bustling Oklahoma City or Tulsa, to a college town like Norman, or to one of the many small rural communities that dot the state, you’ll find a way to feel right at home.
You’ll find a rich mix of cowboy culture, Native culture, and bustling urban life in Oklahoma, depending on where you finally hang your hat. One of the best things about moving to Oklahoma is that it’s affordable. You can definitely get more bang for your buck in terms of housing, daily living expenses, and more than you can in other areas of the country -- even if you choose to live right in the heart of OKC or Tulsa.
Be prepared to keep an eye on the weather, though! Oklahoma weather is notoriously changeable -- bright and clear one moment, with devastating storms and tornadoes popping up seemingly out of nowhere. In exchange, though, you get access to the Arbuckle Mountains and other places of absolutely stunning beauty, and a warm enough climate that you can enjoy the outdoors much of the year.
