Not sure if you have looked our way, but the Southwest part of Ok is really nice too, or at least I think it is. lol


The Wichita Wildlife Refuge is here and several lakes (Lake Lawtonka and Lake Ellsworth) to enjoy fishing and boating.

Oklahoma City is only 45 minutes away while Dallas/ Fort Worth is about 3 hours.


Good luck on the search for your new home

But that is the part of the state where 100s start up first before summer and leave last.

That's not always a bad thing. (From someone who grew up in the Phoenix area.) There's slightly less humidity so it feels about the same as OKC or Ardmore, a bit less oppressive than Poteau where my SIL lives.

I talked with a man yesterday who lives in Eufaula. He drives to Muskogee to play bridge twice a week. He retired there several years ago and his main comment was to say taxes on his home went up this year, so that's not much help. He did add there probably wouldn't be any jobs available.

I wouldn't expect much in the way of jobs openings in such a small town as Eufaula.

Lake Eufaula is a nice place to live only if your on the lake and do not mind driving to either Muskogee or McAlester which case I'd pick Muskogee. Personally either city wouldn't be on my list but I do like lake Eufaula for it recreation not it's town.

I actually like the town of Eufaula. More upbeat than most towns.

The counties we are now interested in are Bryan, Choctaw, Love, Marshall, McIntosh and Okmulgee. We still of course plan to make a trip to these counties just to "check out" the area. Any thoughts or views would be greatly appreciated! Laurie and Bob
