I was born in Duncan, raised in Hennessey and Enid and have lived in Texas since 1982. My Husband is originally from the Cushing area and we want to move back to Oklahoma looking at the Eufala area. We want things nice and slow. Less traffic no drama. If all goes as planned we should be ready to move by next spring. Can anyone tell me about Eufala. I want the likes and dislikes. We enjoy being outside and are busy with our church. What are schools like we have one school age child. Thanks in advance.

Eufaula is a neat little town. The downtown area is quaint and you can have some fun shopping. It looks really Christmasmy during the holidays. The lake and surrounding area, obviously, give you many fun outdoor options. If your husband likes to fish he'll have a ball.

Have you looked into Longtown? There's a cool community that backs right up to the eastside of the lake. You should check it out.

It is definitely a slower pace. The culture of Eufaula is typical of most smaller Oklahoma towns...it's mix of Southern and Southwest. I have property just southeast of the Eufaula area so I go through there several times a year. Adelita's is one of my favorite Mexican restaurants.

Welcome back to Oklahoma!

Eufaula is too little to have a Wal-Mart. Maybe that is part of its charm.

There is a Wal-Mart Super Center only about 13 miles away in Checotah. There is a state park there on Eufaula Lake not far from the town of Eufaula. The lake is supposed to have great bass fishing. The lake is quite beautiful in the Eufaula area. Many people see the northern part of the lake where I-40 crosses it. That part is often churned up from rain or wind, and doesn't look so nice. It's much more still down by Eufaula.

Don't know much about Eufaula schools, but I'm sure they are much like other small town Oklahoma schools. They will be safe and caring. They will have the support of the community. Can't guarantee they will score high academically. You should research if that matters to you. In these kinds of schools, it's more about the effort the student puts in than anything else. You get out what you put in. They will provide a good environment and your student (and you) do the rest.

I remember they have a whole hog festival in Eufaula. A quick search shows it's in July. They have music, a parade, a classic car show, a carnival, rodeo, a poker run on lake, and a hog cook-off. Sounds fun and delicious.

Eufaula isn't far from McAlester, and not much further to Muskogee.

I think Eufaula is a nice little town that you might enjoy. Check it out.
