    With a population today of approximately 50,000 people, Enid was founded in 1893 after the Cherokee Strip Land Run. President Grover Cleveland designated September 16, 1893 as the date of the "run" for 6 million acres. On that day, 100,000 people gathered for the land run into the Cherokee Outlet. The potential settlers awaited cavalry soldiers' gunshots to start the biggest land rush in the United States with over 40,000 homesteads claimed. Originally named "Skeleton Station," the name was changed to Enid from a character named Enid, in Alfred, Lord Tennyson's Idylls of the King.

  • Are you wondering what Enid is all about? The details below are in my opinion only. I hope it helps to paint the picture for you.

    The weather is extreme here. It is usually either very hot or very cold, and windy or perfect. Or, it can be all four in one day! I always send my kids to school with a sweatshirt they can peel off by the lunch hour! Enid doesn't seem to have many issues with tornadoes. We get high winds and hail, but that is about it. I have lived here for over 19 years, and have never had to go down into the storm shelter. I do recommend tornado insurance just in case. If you want peace of mind, you can add a storm shelter in a garage or outside a home for $3,000 or more depending on the size.

    The crime in Enid is relatively low. I feel super safe here. It's a great place to raise a family or retire! When we were stationed in Korea, I knew over a dozen people that had once been stationed in Enid at Vance Air Force Base that someday wanted to return to Enid because it was one of their favorite places to live.

    The people are so nice here! There is a church on every corner and people are friendly, neighborly, and welcoming! I have a lot of military clients move to Enid because of the Air Force Base here and I warn them to allow an extra five minutes just to talk to the cashier at the grocery store because they will talk to your ear off! I am from the west coast and so it was a noticeable change for me. The crime here mostly consists of domestic disputes, drug or alcohol-related incidents, and petty theft. I rarely hear about a murder or break-in, but most people lock their doors at night now. I would not leave any vehicles unlocked with purses or other valuables in them because they could get stolen. We rarely see homeless people on the northwest side of town. Once in a while, one might wander in that direction but will be removed after a day or two.

    Enid consists of a farming/agricultural, oil, and gas community with two big hospitals and Vance Air Force Base. Due to the base, there is a lot of turnover, but for the most part, everyone is welcoming! Vance AFB is primarily a pilot training base with supporting operations. Here, the base is involved with the community and gives back. The locals appreciate the military families stationed here and thank them for their service often! Don't forget to ask for your "military discount" at restaurants and businesses that are offered!

    Enid is the "hub" of central Oklahoma. We are surrounded by a bunch of small towns, so everybody will drive to Enid to shop at Lowe's, Walmart, Academy, and more. They also come to eat out at restaurants, breweries, and to participate in other events or activities. Enid is a perfect size, yet growing. Traffic is tolerable, with only a handful of stoplights to pass through. There's a 15-20 minute radius in any direction to get across town.

    We like to make a day trip to Oklahoma City or Edmond to shop or hit the larger stores and other restaurants! It's about an hour and 10 minutes away. Wichita, Kansas and Tulsa are only a couple of hours away. Furthermore, there are several options of airports to search for affordable travel. We fly out of OKC, Wichita, or Tulsa and sometimes Dallas or Houston, depending on where you're going!

    Enid is growing to the northwest and northeast. That's where the newer development and neighborhoods are. There's limited inventory too for homes if you want newer. They just can't build them fast enough!

    We only have two public school districts in Enid, then the surrounding towns have their own smaller schools. There are private schools in Enid to include (elementary level): Emmanuel, St. Francis, Cimarron Montessori, (Middle and High School) Oklahoma Bible Academy. The NW and NE Chisholm School District currently require that you live in the district in order to send your student(s) there. Chisholm is currently an A+ rated public school for all levels: elementary, middle, and high school. Enid Public Schools have several great elementary schools (on the NW side of town) and there are several middle schools, but only one is average (also on the NW side.) Enid High School has an F rating and it's the only high school in the Enid District for now.

    So you see, there is a huge demand to live on the NW side of town and even more of a demand to live in the Chisholm School District if schools ratings are of importance. However, it's important to know which school district will fit your student's needs the best because the Chisholm vs Enid Middle and High Schools offer two very different extracurricular/athletic options. Only Enid offers soccer, wrestling, swimming, and tennis. Enid also has a more serious band program as well as accelerated classes that count towards college credits. Chisholm has accelerated courses too, but they don't count for college credits. The last thing to mention is that Enid Middle and High are much larger in size and diversity than the smaller Chisholm District.

    I'm not a political person, but it's safe to say that Oklahoma is more of a Republican state. We like to have our right to bear arms and be able to protect ourselves. It's very common for people to have a concealed carry license or you'll just see people with their holsters on. I guess that's why we don't have many problems! There are lots of hunters and farmers too.

    Really, in my opinion, Enid is more country than city, but everything you need is nearby!

    The 90 degree weather is now upon us! Summer is not officially here yet, but with the temperatures sky-rocketing, it might as well be. The best way to beat the summer heat is by cooling off in some nice, cool water. One of the best places to do that is at Enid's own Splash Zone. Splash Zone is a rather small, fairly priced, family friendly water park here in Enid. It has a large pool, a few different water rides, a lazy river, and a shallow children's play area. The park also has a concession stand in case you get hungry or thirsty, plenty of chairs to lay out on, and many pavilions available for use. Splash Zone is a perfect place to cool off for the day without having to drive too far or spend an arm and a leg to get in!
  • The longer I live in Enid, (going on four years now) the fonder I grow of the downtown area. My day feels happier if I can get all of my meetings, eating and shopping done downtown rather than venturing out to the big chain stores and traffic on Garriott. Speaking of happy, one of my favorite little shops for finding perfect gifts, or just killing a little time is the Felt Bird on Independence. The owners are marvelous people and the merchandise is, well, quirky. They have everything from Enid t-shirts and Toms to jewelry, home decor, humor gifts and more. They offer a military discount and best of all, are open on Mondays when many other downtown stores are closed!

  • When I'm in the mood for Italian (or I ask my daughter where she wants to go eat for lunch), Napoli's is at the top of the list. The location is top-notch: downtown, and directly across the street from the Enid Convention Center and the David Allen Memorial Ball Park. The historic building provides a great atmosphere, the service is friendly, prices are reasonable and last but not least, the food is always tasty! They bring out fresh, warm bread right away and this is no doubt why my daughter is hooked....me too, really. If you find yourself in Enid and in the mood for some great Italian food, check out Napoli's!
