New to OKC? Explore the Better Life Blog

Wednesday, June 24, 2015

If you're new to Oklahoma City and want to know where to live, this week's posts on The Better Life Blog will help you. This blog, found on the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber's A Better Life OKC website, is geared toward people who have recently moved to Oklahoma City, but it's also a great resource for anyone who wants to explore the community and state.

Separate posts this week feature housing in different areas of the city:

Won't You Be My Neighbor? -- Read about living in or near downtown, including in Oklahoma City's Central Business District, Bricktown, Deep Deuce and Midtown, all of which offer new and developing options for urban living. And there's even a new public elementary school for those with children.

Living in the Past -- Take a look at some of Oklahoma City's historic neighborhoods, including Crown Heights, Mesta Park/Heritage Hills, Jefferson Park and Historic Capitol Hill.

Sticking With the Suburbs -- Explore some of the outlying areas in the Greater Oklahoma City region, with options to the north and south, surrounded by retail and schools, choices that include a variety of home and land sizes and a little farther out if you're interested.

Pastoral Paradise -- Go even further out if you're looking for more land and quiet living, whether you are looking at Surrey Hills/Piedmont/Deer Creek in northwest Oklahoma City; West Bethany/Mustang/Yukon in west Oklahoma City; and Midwest City/Choctaw/Jones/Nicoma Park/Lake Aluma to the east.

While you're on The Better LIfe Blog site, keep reading for a comprehensive look at the events, places, culture, history, activities, recreation and all the things that make Oklahoma City home. Soon you'll feel like you know the place. It's a great resource for learning your way around if you're new, or exploring new areas if you're been here awhile.
