I hate to say it but I've always thought that Seminole is kind of scroungy. It was a 1920s oil boom roughneck town that kind of slowly withered away. There are some nice areas of town but the older areas and the downtown are pretty rundown. It is a pretty green place in that it is in the trees, and it's close proximity to Ada is a plus.

LOL, I agree using walmart as a gauge is hilarious.

But OTOH, we live in a rural area, and we actually travel to Seminole to hit their walmart, and other stores because most of the surrounding small towns don't have any of the FF places or a grocery store that is affordable.

Seminole is not bad and not great in my opinion. It's sort of the lessor of two evils. It has a community college and a GREAT Italian restaurant. Now THAT was a surprise!


Of course many people prefer either city, small town, or rural. Seminole is not small town, I think of any town with a population under 1000 to be a small town, although I am not sure how others gauge a small town.

We go to the vet there and sometimes go to church there. So I have nothing really bad to say about Seminole except it like all other towns in OK has a meth problem. But that goes without sayung.
