Oklahoma City (OK) Senior Living Communities

With nearly 300 senior living options, a low cost of living, and plenty of things to do, Oklahoma City makes a great retirement city.

The overall cost of living is 11% below the national average. Combine this with the low cost of senior living options and Oklahoma City makes an attractive retirement option. For example, the average cost of a one-bedroom in an Oklahoma assisted living facility is $2,800, says a recent Genworth Financial survey on long-term care. A private room in a nursing home averages $155 a day, while a semi-private averages $135 a day.

Downtown’s 17-acre Myriad Botanical Gardens features a sunken lake and a living plant museum with tropical plants, flowers and exotic animals.

Oklahoma City’s cultural offerings include the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, Oklahoma City Ballet, Civic Center Music Hall and the Stage Center for the Performing Arts. And there’s the Science Museum Oklahoma, the International Photography Hall of Fame, and the Jim Thorpe Museum and Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame.

The 45th Infantry Division Museum, Oklahoma City Zoo, Southern Plains Indian Museum, and Shakespeare in the Park are just a few of the local attractions. Stroll the Bricktown Canal and Entertainment District where you’ll find shops, dining and the American Banjo Museum.

The city pays tribute to its past with The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, the 10-acre Harn Homestead Museum, and the 215,000-square-foot Oklahoma History Center that showcases the state’s history from their 39 Native American tribes to the Gemini 6 space capsule.

For a taste of authentic cowboy living, visit Stockyards City where you’ll find an enormous cattle auction, western shops, and restaurants.
