If you’re looking for a place to live that has big-city amenities and small-town charm, Broken Arrow, Oklahoma the place to be. This is a community that is surrounded by some of the state’s most scenic natural areas, making it an outdoor kind of place. But it also offers many different cultural attractions that draw those who love the arts and entertainment. Also, the business climate is thriving here along with being home to three renowned hospitals. There is an excellent public-school system as well as several private schools.
