Lawton is big enough to have quite a few of the big box stores, so shopping in them should give you something to do for a while.

We are looking for an area outside the city that we can have a small homesteads Garden fram but also near shoping and banking and a post office. Where should we look for such an neighborhood? If not lawton please recommend an area near by that allow small farming. Thanks.
Lawton is/isn't in Tornado Paths - they generally tend to start near Lawton and move North East toward Oklahoma City.
Lawton and surrounding towns get more wind and hail damage from storms.

Inside the city limits of Lawton you can grow your own veggies, if you get a house with enough space to do that. Anything more than a cat/dog and you will be out of luck, not allowed.

Outside the city limits there are plenty of small towns that you can get a few acres and have fun farming.
These cities are, Geronimo, Cache, Elgin, Indiahoma (All within 20 miles of Lawton).
Each of these cities have schools and small mom and pop shops, but are within 15-20 minutes of Lawton where there are the big box shops.

Big box shops for Lawton:
West Side of Town - Walmart, Target, Acadamy Sports, Kirklands, Ace Hardware, Tractory Supply, Atwoods, Lowe's and Home Depot

Center of Town - Walmart, Sam's Club, Hobby Lobby, Office Depot, Staples, Ross

East of Town - Central Mall (Dillards, JC Penny's, Victoria Secrets, and the normal small stores for a mall), Dicks Sporting Goods, Bed Bath & Beyond, Kohls, Ulta.
