Oklahoma Apartments and Homes

Overview

Can you even think of Oklahoma without hearing the Rodgers and Hammerstein lyrics: "Oklahoma, where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain/ And the wavin' wheat can sure smell sweet /When the wind comes right behind the rain"? Putting the singing and dancing aside, these lyrics are actually not a bad description of the Sooner State. With its rich plains, cowboy heritage and friendly residents, Oklahoma is more than an O.K. place to search for apartments for rent.

What to Expect

The discovery of oil in this land made a lot of folks rich, but natural-gas production has since surpassed oil in importance to the economy. Other significant industries include meatpacking, food processing and machinery manufacturing. And then, of course, there's agriculture. Oklahoma's farms are best known for their bumper crops of wheat. Other farm products include hay, sorghum, cotton and peanuts, and livestock, including cattle, poultry and hogs.

Oklahoma pays homage to its heritage at interesting destinations like the National Cowboy Hall of Fame in Oklahoma City, the Will Rogers Memorial in Claremore, the Cherokee Cultural Center with its restored Cherokee village, and the restored Fort Gibson Stockade. Residents and visitors will learn a lot about our nation's heritage at each of these fascinating stops.

Where to Explore

One aspect that those looking for apartments in Oklahoma can enjoy is the affordability. The state is one of the most affordable in the country, with a cost of living well below the national average.

Oklahoma City

The state's largest city with more than half a million residents, Oklahoma City has been the state capital since 1910, about 20 years after it was first settled by a rush of homesteaders eager to establish themselves on the frontier. Today, Oklahoma City is a center for the financial industry, livestock market and other industries for the state. The fact that there are oil wells even on the capitol grounds gives you some idea of oil's importance to the city. Residents enjoy cultural attractions such as a symphony orchestra, museums, theater complex, state library and a zoo.

Tulsa

A city that claims to be southern, eastern and western all at once, Tulsa is home to over 400,000 residents, and is the only big city in Oklahoma besides the capital. Big enough to have everything you need but small enough to feel like a small town, Tulsa delivers urban amenities like ballet, museums, shopping and nightlife while maintaining a friendly, down-to-earth sense of community.
