We are relocating to OK due to a job change. The job is in Red Rock, but we are looking into Ponca City and Stillwater to live. I have researched the schools on line (my daughter won't start school for a couple of years though). I have found good info on elementary schools, but what about the rest of the town? Any info would be helpful.

Well, Stillwater is the fastest growing city in Oklahoma that's outside of an Oklahoma metro area(around 45,000) while Ponca City is losing population. If you're into attending college sports, then Stillwater wins out easily with Oklahoma State University dominating the town.

Stillwater is great for being closer than Ponca City to Oklahoma's two biggest cities, Oklahoma City and Tulsa, both around an hour away. Since Ponca City is a lot closer to Kansas, Stillwater is more Oklahoma oriented.

A good number of new stores and restaurants have opened in Stillwater in recent years that probably can't be found in Ponca City. A pleasant new strip mall called Lakeview Point is a major example of what's been happening.

In Stillwater, on the north side is Boomer Lake Park, a a very nice mile long by 1/2 mile wide park with a sidewalk that goes around the lake.

To be closer to Red Rock there are a number of housing additons on the far north side of Stillwater that might be suitable for you. Richmond Elementary school will be handy as well. If you choose Stillwater, beat the mad college rush and congestion that starts the 2nd half of August.

I wish you a very smooth and pleasant move getting settled in Oklahoma.
