Oklahoma is experiencing a remarkable transformation, evolving into a magnet for millennials seeking affordable living, professional opportunities and a vibrant cultural scene. With a cost of living well below the national average, the Sooner State is attracting young professionals in droves.
Affordability seems to be the main factor in drawing millennials to our state, with most people moving here hailing from Texas, followed by California, Kansas and Arkansas. The COVID-19 pandemic changed both the personal and professional landscapes for many people, and priorities have shifted when it comes to the qualities people are looking for in a place to live.
