I agree dedzkidz that Edmond is awesome. We've only been here for about 4 weeks now but our new neighbors have been friendly and the elementary school has been great. I live in a "fancy" subdivision according to my co-workers but I haven't had any issues with people being snobby or rude.

I will also add, that many of the folks working in the med center choose to live in Edmond, because of the convenience. There are quite a few doctors and nurses, as well as other med center personnel living in my neighborhood.

It's a very family oriented town. There are lots of parks, a great library and a city water park. There is every kind of sports you would want and all kinds of kids programs. There's an arts institute which offers art classes for kids.

To give you an idea of the commute time, several months ago my parents were visiting from out of town. My dad had a medical emergency and had to be taken to the hospital by ambulance. This happened around 7:30-7:45 in the morning on a weekday, so traffic was at its heaviest. My mom and I left my house in my car and drove to the med center to meet the ambulance. We made it, without speeding, in about 20 minutes. Typically, OKC does not have really bad traffic. Typically, traffic moves along quickly. Most of the time you will be driving at the speed limit (or faster). Of course, if there's a wreck or something, all bets are off. But that would be the case, no matter where you were.

I currently live in Edmond and my husband is a fellow at OuHSC, we also have 2 kids. Edmond is a great place to live, we rent a small 3 bedroom house for 1300$. Our community had 3 playgrounds and a splashpad. Plenty of Mother's Day outs nearby that can be a good start for a pre school. Edmond Real Estate, Norman Homes, Moore Investment Property - Sterling Property Management is a good site to look for a rental.
