Quality of Life
Take a closer look at Oklahoma City and see why more and more people and businesses are building their futures in this young city full of promise.
Over the past decade, Oklahoma City has seen unprecedented growth, and the end is nowhere in sight. Fresh off the largest urban makeover in national history with more than $5 billion invested in new development, Oklahoma City has spruced up, renovated and entered the 21st century with what has become signature gusto.
You'll see our new-found adrenaline reflected in a gleaming downtown; a robust economy; a sparkling, reclaimed river and a neon-lit canal flowing through Bricktown - one of the fastest-growing entertainment districts in the Southwest. Most importantly, you'll find it reflected in the faces of the people who make their homes, lives and livings here.
And we admit it: Oklahoma City may be the biggest small town around – the perfect blend of cosmopolitan advantages with a friendly style. No matter how you like to spend your down time, Oklahoma City has something for everyone. Gaze in awe at the world’s tallest Chihuly glass tower, or climb to the top of one of the region’s tallest rock climbing walls (built in an abandoned grain silo); conquer a skate park designed by Oklahoma City’s own champion BMX racer Mat Hoffman, or skim across Lake Hefner in a sailboat or on a sailboard.
Explore the galleries of our major museums overflowing with treasures or enjoy the organic creativity flowing from dozens of art galleries and performance venues. From sporting events and outdoor adventure, to theatre and ballet, Oklahoma City will dazzle you.
Obviously, we have no shortage of things to brag on ourselves about in Oklahoma City. But see what others are saying about us.
