I may have an opportunity that would have my wife and I relocating to OKC. The office is in the vicinity of the Quail Springs Mall area on the North side. By the time we actually would relocate my youngest would be going off to college so school district is not an issue.

What are some good places to look that would be a reasonable commute to this area? Looking to keep a house under $350k and would like a place with some reasonable quality of life activities, bike trails, golf courses, parks, etc. My wife will not be working so for her its more about easy access to things and social life.

I'm okay with a bit more rural but my wife will want to have more close by. We've looked at Edmond as it seems very similar to where we live now. I would be traveling some so easy access to the airport is a must, and by easy I would say no more than a 45 minute drive.

What are some other area's to consider? I've been to OKC a few times but always on business so haven't really explored much of the area other than having been down to Lawton and Duncan once or twice.

NW of Quail Springs would probably suite you fine. The further N or W you go the more rural it gets.
Quick access to Hwy 74 and the turnpike. Lake Hefner and Bluff Creek are close by for some walking/riding trails. Mitch Park isn't too far away and has trails, a YMCA, and frisbee golf. Arcadia Lake (paid entry) is east of town and has some mountain bike trails though people also run/walk them.

With that office location you are within 10-15 minutes of commuting distance from 75% of the areas that would be desirable for you. The only drawback is that you ARE 20-45 minutes from the Airport depending on where you choose to live and sometimes there is traffic going in the direction of the airport that would slow you down.

If the airport thing is that big an issue, I'd stay as close to HWY 74 as you could. Look at Quail Creek and the Greens, Summerfield
