Greater Oklahoma City is in the geographic center of North America equidistant from the east and west coasts and major trade partners of Canada and Mexico. The ten county region is at the crossroads of the U.S., sitting at the heart of three major national highways on the NAFTA corridor.
There's a reason Greater Oklahoma City is such a great place for business: Location. The ten county region is positioned within a day's drive of the rapidly-growing south-central region (OK, TX, AR, LA) projected to grow more than 44% during the next 25 years.
Water experts say Oklahoma City has the tastiest tap water on the continent. The city won this year's "Best of the Best" water taste test - an annual competition judged by water drinkers with trained tongues chosen by the American Water Works Association, a leading water research and advocacy group.
