Our Region

It seems like you can't open a national economic development publication today without seeing a mention or two of Oklahoma City. Our quality-of-life-fueled renaissance and booming resilience during the national economic downturn helped set the stage for our current momentum that simply hasn't slowed down. Everyone from Forbes, The Business Journals, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Standard and Poor's and many more have praised Oklahoma City's business climate and quality of place.

The Greater Oklahoma City region is composed of a 10-county area and a number of communities offering everything from world-class scientific research, cultural opportunities, professional sports, art and hot urban lifestyles to new suburban developments, retail hotspots and big yards to small-town charm, thriving main streets and rural bucolic bliss. 

We're confident that the more you get to know our region, the more you will agree with numerous national experts and voices (and us) that all say Greater Oklahoma City is the perfect place to live, work and play.
