Oklahoma City boasts clean air. Low crime. Easy commutes. Friendly people. New and renovated schools. An award-winning, family favorite zoo and a fantastic hands-on science museum. Fresh farmers markets and trendy local coffee shops. An exciting, dynamic arts and music scene. A cradle of entrepreneurship. More than 300 days of the sunshine per year. A great sense of community. Even an NBA team calls OKC home. But what's different about Oklahoma City? For starters, you can still dream big. Far from losing that pioneer spirit that took our city from a population of zero to 10,000 with the sharp report of a starter's pistol, we thrive on it. Here, a renewed emphasis on public improvements and large-scale projects has helped propel our renaissance and make OKC a big-league city, while also keeping us a great place to live, work, and play. This enterprise and energy are evident everywhere, whether you're kayaking on the Oklahoma River, checking out the Chihuly glass exhibit at the Museum of Art, or cheering on the Oklahoma City Thunder. From hot urban hustle to sociable and safe suburbia, Oklahoma City not only makes it all possible but makes it easy. OKC, it's truly a better living and a better life.
