Benefits of Living in Oklahoma

Leaving your life in New York and moving to Oklahoma is a significant change, but you’ll be excited about everything the Sooner State has to offer. Oklahoma is a massive land with wide-open natural beauty, unbelievable food, cowboy attitudes and low-traffic cities. Transitioning to Oklahoma life may take some time, but soon, you’ll be sporting cowboy boots while listening to authentic country music. You can examine the benefits of becoming an Oklahoma resident in the following sections.

Oklahoma has

Favorable Living Costs

Oklahoma ranks 3rd in the country for the lowest cost of living, and that is a welcome change from the high prices of New York. You’ll spend much less on transportation, restaurants, groceries and housing. With lower prices, you can spend a night out on the town without worrying about breaking your budget. Recently, Oklahoma has experienced a surge of out-of-state residents flocking to the state to take advantage of the red-hot real estate market.

Oklahoma has a

Booming Real Estate Market

The money you spent on housing in the north will go much further in Oklahoma. Compared to the national average of over $230,000, Oklahoma’s median home cost is only $124,800. When you compare Oklahoma’s house prices to those in New York, you’ll find that OK is over 80% cheaper than the Empire State. That enormous difference means you can purchase a much larger property at a more reasonable price.

With more out-of-state migrations entering the state every day, the housing prices are rising, and you may want to take advantage of the housing prices while they last.

Get Ready for

A Different Climate

Unlike New York, Oklahoma experiences more volatile weather conditions, and its southwestern location is a sharp contrast to the conditions up north. Native residents often joke that in a single day, you may see each of the four seasons. Summers in the state are blistering with 90° days and some temperatures reaching the triple digits. The eastern portion of the state is subtropical, but the western side has less humidity and more arid conditions.

You should be prepared for hot summers, but the good news is Oklahoma has over 300 days of sunshine a year. Enjoying the outdoors is a way of life in the state, and with cool, mild winters, you can leave your cold-weather attire back in New York.

Beware of Tornadoes

New York has an occasional tornado, but it doesn’t compare to Oklahoma’s frequency and scope of tornadic activity. Most tornadoes occur between April and June, and on average, the state sees around 50 tornadoes a year. Although it’s considered to be located in Tornado Alley, Oklahoma has half as many tornadoes every year as Texas. If you need advice on how to prepare for tornado season, ask a native. Oklahoma’s residents are accustomed to extreme weather, and they can give invaluable advice on how to protect yourself in a storm.

Barbecue Anyone?

The cuisine in Oklahoma features some southern favorites like chicken-fried steak and fried chicken, but the state’s population is incredibly proud of its barbecue. Although Missouri would dispute the claim, Oklahoma barbecue chefs claim to have the best barbecue in the country. You can see several nearby states’ influence on the OK barbecue style, but the smoked hog and delicious brisket are sure to make you forget the food in New York.


Unique Art Scene

If you appreciate fine art, Oklahoma is an exceptional place to live. The state holds several art festivals every year, including the famous Festival of the Arts in Oklahoma City. For six days in April, you can walk around the city and admire sculptures, photography, paintings and live performances. The event is free to the public and features over 140 artists with their works displayed in long rows of outdoor booths. A horde of food trucks and musical acts add to the festivities and attract a large audience from around the country.

Oklahomans Love

College Sports and the OKC Thunder

Although the state’s nickname, “The Sooner State,” came from the settlers who staked claims in the territory before Oklahoma became a state, most residents think of football when they hear the term. The Oklahoma Sooner and Oklahoma Cowboys are beloved by the citizens and a national source of pride.

The Oklahoma City Thunder is another great source of pride, and you may be lucky enough to catch Kevin Durant skillfully take on another top-ranked NBA team.


The Western Landscape

With more unique ecological zones than any state in the country, Oklahoma is an outdoor paradise. The central area of the state, defined by the Red Beds Plains, features picturesque rolling hills composed of shale and red sandstone. The northwest is the flattest area known as the High Plains, and the northwest includes the incomparable Gypsum Hills. Sparkling gypsum caps the hilltops in this area, and the region extends into several counties in Kansas.


Oklahoma Museums

Oklahoma has plenty of museums and exhibits to keep you entertained. In Oklahoma City, you can visit the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum to view a replica of a cattle town, Native American artifacts, antique firearms and a collection of paintings and sculptures from famous Western artists. The city also features the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum. The museum is a memorial to the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing victims, and it includes moving testimonials from the survivors and rescuers.

Traveling to Oklahoma from the Empire State will be an exciting adventure, and you can trust White Glove Moving to move your belongings to the Sooner State carefully and efficiently.
