Edmond is a fantastic place to live. During this season of romance, we thought it was fitting to pay tribute to our beautiful city. A sonnet would be lovely, but we couldn’t quite make everything rhyme. So instead, we compiled a list.
These are the top five (non-rhyming) reasons we love living in Edmond:
Excellent Schools – Edmond boasts an outstanding public school system. With 17 elementary schools, six middle schools, and three high schools, just over 22,000 students are being served by some of the top teachers and administrators in the state. As if that’s not enough, Edmond also has a wide selection of private schools. Our kids are a priority, and the quality education system is the number one reason we love living in Edmond.
Variety of Restaurants – You don’t have to drive far to get just about any type of food that catches your fancy. It goes without saying that we have a number of steak houses and burger joints, and those are always popular (and always appreciated!). But when you’re in the mood for something different, Edmond has places where you can get Thai, Indian, Chinese, Italian, Mexican, Mediterranean . . . just about any kind of food you can imagine. For homestyle favorites or more exotic fare, Edmond’s got it all.
Chisholm Creek – The shopping, dining, and entertainment offered at Chisholm Creek, combined with the pedestrian-friendly setting and water features make Chisholm Creek one of our favorite places to visit in Edmond. (Technically, it’s in Oklahoma City, but we’re going to claim this one because it’s so very close.) It’s the perfect place to stroll with an ice cream in hand on a warm summer evening. And the perfect place to chat with a friend over a warm cup of coffee in the winter.
Edmond Parks & Recreation – From Arcadia Lake to the Festival Market Place to the many trails that wind through the city, we love the services provided by Parks & Recreation. Free summer concerts under the stars and an enjoyable round of golf at KickingBird Golf Club. Exciting summer camps for kids and over 30 city parks. What more can we ask for?
Quality of Life – It’s a little hard to quantify, but there’s something about the combination of all these factors that makes for a good life. And not just the things we’ve mentioned here, but also the fact that people are friendly, community life is strong, and everyone is involved and engaged with different organizations, whether it’s a church or another type of non-profit. People care. That’s why, overall, we think that Edmond offers a high quality of life that’s hard to beat.
