Is Oklahoma a nice place to live?
As with any other state, it depends on what you are seeking in Oklahoma. I was born in Oklahoma, left the state after graduating with a B.S. degree, returned later to earn a Master’s degree, and still own ranch land there. If you are an educator in grades K-12, I would advise you to think carefully about moving there. The education system has been neglected by the House and Senate and Governor for so long that it is in disarray. That is why educators marched on the Capitol not so long ago. College teachers fare better, especially in the engineering fields of study. If you are looking for a job or deciding on a college major, the highest paying jobs are in the medical profession and include surgeons, doctors of internal medicine, ob-gyn, psychiatrists, pediatricians, P.A.’s, and nurse anesthetists, and dentists. Next are architectural engineers and managers, petroleum engineers, CEO’s, company managers, attorneys, computer science and software. Of course, there are many more specialties.,
If you are searching for vacation spots, some of the best outdoor places are Turner Falls, Beaver’s Bend at Broken Bow, Broken Bow Lake, Chickasaw National Recreation Area, Dune Buggies at Little Sahara in Waynoka, Wichita Mountains hike and bike trails, Robber’s Cave (used to be a hideout for robbers}, Natural Falls State Park in West Siloam Springs, Keystone Lake at Sand Springs.
If you are a hunter, consider obtaining a license to hunt deer, quail, or turkeys and a fishing license for one of the beautiful lakes.
For indoor activities, Oklahoma City and Tulsa metropolitan areas have a plethora of museums. Claremore has the Will Rogers Memorial Museum. Perry has the Cherokee Strip Museum. Of course, there are the many casinos and vineyards.
I find Oklahoma to be a friendly place, but as with any place, you have to be a friendly person to find friendly people.
