We know what you’re thinking: the suburbs are snoozers! But wait just a moment, dear reader. It’s not all huge SUVs with backseat TV screens, chain restaurants, roving packs of opinionated soccer moms, soulless big-box retail and packed Starbucks drive-thrus in OKC’s suburbs. Many take advantage of Oklahoma City’s famously quick commutes and live in popular “suburban” areas that are nonetheless easily accessible, feature lots of new housing product, clean and green lawns and safe, cost-effective subdivisions--and that still feel like a seamless part of the city.
So what’s the real story on OKC’s suburbs? How about good schools, close neighborhood ties and unique community events? If that doesn’t grab you, think open, modern floor plans, sizable yards, shared neighborhood amenities like pools and splashpads and more. The best part? Affordable suburban neighborhoods abound all over the metro. Whether it’s north, south, east or west, in our own cool considerate objective opinion, OKC’s suburbs offer the best of all worlds, especially given Oklahoma City’s low commute times. In Oklahoma City, living in the suburbs doesn’t have to mean living out of the city. Learn more on our website at http://www.abetterlifeokc.com/housing/suburban-neighborhoods/.
