This state is a great place to live and raise a family. Not only can you experience city life, but you also have access to lots of natural land in the country. There are 50 national parks in the state that protect forests, grasslands, and prairie land. Oklahoma is also home to the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma and the Cherokee. Due to the excellent housing marketing in Oklahoma, buying your first family home in the state is affordable and easy. You also have lots of greats cities and town to choose from. Below, you will find the best locations in Oklahoma to live and work in!

Tulsa, OK

First up is Tulsa, which is the second-largest city in the state. Dating back to 1828, Tulsa’s rise as a big city was due in part to the oil industry. Tulsa even has the nickname “Oil Capital of the World.” Tulsa has a robust downtown area that features lots of shopping musical venues, businesses and restaurants. But there are also several suburbs, including Broken Arrow, that offer a more laid-back lifestyle. The first step in buying your dream home in Tulsa is deciding in what area of the city you want to live in. If you have kids, try and search popular schools and narrow your search there. Tulsa is also very affordable with the median home price hovering around $295,000.

Oklahoma City, OK

As the capital of the state, Oklahoma City is one of the best places to live in Oklahoma. This big city includes numerous, unique neighborhoods. In downtown Oklahoma City, you can find plenty of apartments and townhomes, while the Bethany neighborhood features good deals on family houses. There are lots of good job opportunities in the city as well as good schools. The best thing about living in Oklahoma City is that you get the perfect mix of city life, with various entertainments and sporting options to enjoy, and greenery to experience, as the city features botanical gardens, a zoo, and even the beautiful Lake Hefner.

Edmond, OK

Last is Edmond, which is a part of the Oklahoma City area. The perk of choosing Edmond is that you are still close to the big city but get to have a more rural lifestyle.
