Review of Norman, Oklahoma

Norman, OK
Star Rating - 10/5/2006
Norman is overall a very nice community. The University of Oklahoma is located in our city and is a vibrant, growing educational facility. While sometimes it seems the tail (the University) wags the dog (the city), the benefits of having the University outweigh the negatives. The cost of living is reasonable; traffic can be a problem during rush hour; shopping is adequate and we are close to OKC with larger and more varied shopping opportunities; good restaurants, both chain and local. Crime is fairly low, but could easily escalate due to population growth. Politically, the city is diverse and perhaps leans slightly to the left, but being located in the Bible Belt, we remain basically conservative. Among the housing markets within central metro area, Norman is one of the more competitve.
