Hello all,
I value your input.
Is Pawnee, OK a good place to live? I would be working at the IHS, Pawnee Indian Health Center.
In addition to the area - as a single male, is there much of a social scene or opportunities to meet single women ? Just asking...
Thank you in advance for your input.
-John

It's a more Indian that usual Oklahoma town and is a rather stagnant place. It's set in a fairly pretty area. It has an attractive old courthouse downtown surrounded by store buildings, some stores still open having had survived the onslaught of Wal-Marts from bigger nearby towns, such as Cushing and Stillwater.

Probably the best way to meet women in Oklahoma small towns is by going to church. Or volunteer for something that draws women volunteers as well, or something good that gets you out of the house.

I would imagine for entertainment that most single Pawnee people go to Stillwater or Tulsa.

The town of Pawnee is pleasant. There is a pretty good steak house, a Sonic, a burger joint, and a cafe in the Pawnee casino. Cheathams is closed. Keith was a 3rd generation merchant who occupied the south side of the plaza and decided to shut down before he went broke. Yes, Wal-mart was more than he could take.

But you are 20 miles from Stillwater, so shopping, nightlife with an incredible array of some of Oklahoma's most beautiful college co-eds, lots of athletic opportunities, and lots of other things to do, whether it is music (Stillwater is home of the Red Dirt genre of music), hunting, fishing, cars (Hallet racing circuit is in Pawnee County), dining (LOTS of steak houses in the region as well as some good ethnic food places), boating (Pawnee County borders Keystone Lake)......all while retaining a low low cost of housing and energy.

Other than that it will bore you..............

Yeah, I think the name of the steakhouse is Click's. I, too, have heard it's good and have been wanting to go there to try it out.

Years ago there used to be a Piggly Wiggly in Pawnee, across the street from the courthouse. One of my earliest memories as a little kid was getting lost in there and crying while my mother was getting groceries.

Thought I would bump this to see about getting some info. I've got a possible job opportunity here, but wondered if a lot of people who work in the area live in Stillwater. It seems like a reasonable commute to me.

Stillwater seems more my speed. I grew up in a smaller town and although it's nice, I think I'd do better in a somewhat bigger small town--I've visited Stillwater several times and liked it, and have some family living in the area [though most of my people are in the eastern part of the state.]

The person I spoke with today said that many people who work in the Pawnee area commute from Stillwater. Pawnee itself apparently does not offer much as far as housing.

Starting to look like I may be heading to the area later this summer.

BTW, you know you're in Oklahoma when the size of a town is described by the division of the football team [2A, 3A, etc...] Pawnee is 2A. The town I grew up in was 4A, so I guess Pawnee is pretty small compared to that.

Maybe 2A is a bit small, but you are less than 20 miles to T Boone Pickens Stadium.............

Got the phone call today, so I will be heading there at some point this summer. Still have a lot of paperwork and stuff to process. Definitely living in Stillwater.
