So you can resort to having an above ground pool.

(That's non-negotiable.)

Any particular areas/neighborhoods anyone can recommend?

Thank you for reading.
So did you decide to go look in some other state for what you want?

I have a place near me that fits most of the requirements, except the red highlighted areas (and the basement). Down here in the southwest part of the state is Medicine Park, which definitely is artsy, "bohemian" and "hippie". It's also pricey for what one gets, but there are a number of older, fixer-uppers there which are affordable if that's what one is looking for, and are not McMansions nor are they Stately Wayne Manor. One of my former employees lived there, and he didn't like it because of its decidedly liberal feel, and burgeoning tourism. I like the place myself, but it IS getting a bit crowded on weekends.

The Paseo in OKC. It's the most liberal, "hippie" part of the state. A lot of homes there are older and even have basements since in the early days, OK builders built them.

Right. I already brought up the Paseo and have been there before.

I thought they were one and the same.

You'd be surprised how many old hippies there are living in rural areas and small towns. Every time I go to the weed shop I am surprised at how many people in this small town smoke pot. A lot of the clientele are in their 50s, 60s, and 70s. It's good to know that Oklahoma isn't as conservative as some folks think it is after all they were enough people who wanted medical marijuana for it to pass.

Good luck on finding your bohemian haven.
