Why Oklahoma City, OK?

Oklahoma City is unlike any other city in the world. Born in a single day at the sound of a gunshot, Oklahoma City was settled by a historic land run. Angelo Scott, a journalist who staked his claim in the run, wrote at the time about the spirit of the city, saying it has "an attitude that all things are possible if people are willing to take a chance and embrace the future without hesitation or reservation."
That same spirit lives today as the city undergoes a renaissance. Public and private partnerships over the last 10 years have dramatically transformed the face of the city, staking a claim for the future as a pre-eminent American city.
Oklahoma City offers everything you look for in a modern metropolitan community - an abundance of the arts, quality health care, excellence in education and more. And it does so without high costs, energy shortages, smog or traffic congestion. It is a distinctly livable city where you can chase your business dreams and still enjoy a rich quality of life.
