Yeah, Tahlequah is one of those Oklahoma towns people don't bad mouth. Maybe there needs to be a Top 5 list of Oklahoma towns that people don't bad mouth. Nominations for that list that most come to mind: Bartlesville, Durant, Tahlequah, Grove and Stillwater. If some people think it needs expanded to a Top Ten list, I wouldn't be surprised.

I do agree that the Tahlequah/Grove/Grand Lake region is (IMO) the prettiest part of the state, but there is something to be said for the stark, rugged beauty of the far West of Oklahoma too. The Wichitas, etc.

I'll throw Enid into the mix as well, and if you're looking for a funky is-this-really-Oklahoma place, think Medicne Park.

B-Ville, Guthrie, Duncan, Altus, Owasso, 'Skog, Newcastle, & Ardmore are all great towns. I could go on, but these are the first to come to mind.

I may be a bit biased, but Durant has always been a favorite of mine even before I moved there. I would always look forward to visiting Durant; my grandparents and many family members live there. I moved to Durant with my mom and sister in 2003 when I was 12 and absolutely loved it, and still love it! The education and healthcare systems are great, as is the economy. You have the Medical Center of Southeastern Oklahoma and many other facilities centered around the hospital, and, of course, Southeastern Oklahoma State University and the headquarters of the Choctaw Nation.

Other towns that I love are Tahlequah, McAlester, and Guthrie. Durant takes the #1 spot for me.

I've been working western Oklahoma for the last 5 or 6 years. Weatherford seems to be the annointed town out there. Alva is also known as a good community in NW Oklahoma.

I may live in Tulsa but part of me will always be in far Southeast Oklahoma. McCurtain County,Choctaw County and Bryan County all have some of the most wonderful country anywhere. Durant seems to be one of the most prosperous areas in the state, thanks in large part to Chief Greg Pyle and the Choctaw Nation as well as SEOSU and a lot of hard working people in the area. I once lived in the building (O.P.C) that is now the Tribal headquarters there and find it hard to believe what has happened to Do-Rant in 40 short years. Hugo, Valliant, and Broken Bow all have great lakes nearby as does Durant but they also have some of greatest scenery and hunting anywhere. My butt may be in Tulsa and I do like it here, but my heart is always somewhere in Southeast Oklahoma.

I am hoping that soon we can move to a smaller town somewhere, or maybe live out in the boonies and work in a smaller town nearby. My job will allow me the opportunity to transfer anywhere in the state, but I won't be able to really make a move like that until early next year.
