IMO I wouldn't live in MWC or Del City, but I know a lot of people in my office live in the Moore area and like it a lot. I live in Jones, which is pretty small and about 25 north of the base, but you'd really have to like small town life to like it there! Choctaw is a closer drive and is growing quite rapidly. Homes are reasonably priced and there are a lot of new businesses sprouting up. It's a quick drive to work or OKC, but you still get the country living feel.

A word on Google maps: We bought a house in a new subdivision in Moore and it is not on any online maps yet. The streets were cut by the developer so they have not been updated for the map (or GPS), and our neighborhood has been developing for 3 or 4 years now. When we tried to find a rendering, the map always defaults to another address because it is thinking we made a mistake in our input. When we try to manually move the map to our neighborhood, it is still shown as an empty field (maybe farmland in its past life?) so make sure you know exactly where you are building when you do your search for areas around Moore.

What might help better answer your question is how much you have to spend on a house to buy or rent. In Del City or Midwest City, you can find some VERY nice homes, but you'll pay a little more for the ones close to base. Typically, favorite areas for Tinker AFB personnel are Moore, Midwest City, Choctaw, and Edmond; all have their good and bad.

Moore is a fine city. My niece and her husband live there; they love it.

We live on Bryant, in the area that was hit by the '99 tornado, so I'm told. Lots of new homes, prices are really good, my kids all attend Moore schools, and I'm satisfied with their education. The base traffic isn't really a problem, my husband gets to work within 15 minutes. However, the newer neighborhoods have no trees

You should report that through the links on Google Maps. Mine was off for a time and it's now showing correctly both for satellite and roads.

To the OP...Moore is closest. But others really aren't that much farther.

Default relocating to tinker AFB

I agree with everyone on this post. You probably don't want to live in Midwest City or Del City except for the far east side of MWC. There is more commercial development on that side so running to the store isn't the problem it used to be.

If your fiance is going to work with military personnel, check and see if they will check the military preferred housing list. It recommends housing areas for military families and takes crime into consideration. Also check the Crime Tracker website where you can type in an address and it will put up a map of local crime. Look at type of crimes not just number of crimes. All areas have crime so look specifically at the types of crime where the victim has to be present. For example, robberies and assaults are more dangerous than car thefts. Check Watchdog family website for registered sex offenders. You can google both sites, I don't think I can post the links here.

Good luck with your move and new job!

If you truly wanted to stay away from the big towns, head out toward McLoud. There are some wonderful new developments going in and the schools are great. It is about 20 minutes to Tinker.
