Welcome to Oklahoma City, capital of the Sooner State!
Our city leaders and citizens have a far-reaching vision that has led to a new frontier of urban innovation. The result of this vision has been a billion-dollar renaissance which helped create a vibrant and energetic city. Projects like the mile-long Bricktown Canal have infused new life into the Southwest's fastest-growing entertainment district. Significant downtown business development has accompanied the renovation of convention, cultural and educational sites. The Metropolitan Area Projects for Kids (MAPS for Kids), a bond and sales tax package, was passed to revitalize the area school districts which included funding a comprehensive reform plan and capital improvements to the public schools.
Oklahoma City boasts many cultural attractions including the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, the Oklahoma City Ballet and the Oklahoma City Museum of Art. Its people enjoy the many area lakes, city parks, theme parks, zoo, golf courses and shopping malls.
Over a million people live in the Oklahoma City MSA with an average income of $53,277 per household. With the most affordable housing the country and exceptional quality of life, it's no wonder that the city was named as one of the Best Place to Live in North America by Place Rated Almanac. It is affordable and desirable … a better living, a better life.
