    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!

    Spring is in the air! You can tell it’s spring by the warmer air, the pretty blooms on the trees, the flowers being planted all around, and the green stain of weed killer being sprayed on lawns. Spring is an all around fun time. The weather is perfect to be outside doing all kinds of activities. Baseball and softball games are starting, walkers and runners and hitting the walking trails, and many people are enjoying the sunshine from their front porches. It is a beautiful time of year!

    With spring quickly approaching, buyers are lining up for a change of scenery. Maybe it's first-time buyers armed with tax return money ready to buy that starter home, or a PCS-ing military family looking for a place to call home for the next few years. Whatever the reason, spring is the season to get on the move!

    While which home to buy is an important aspect, as a parent the real question for me is, "Where should my kids go to school?". The internet is full of information on the A-F Report Card and Common Core vs PASS. So, it can be hard to sift through all the information and make a decision.

    Let me just tell you, Enid is home to many schools: Emmanuel Christian, Oklahoma Bible Academy, Cimarron Montessori, Chisholm, and Enid Public just to name a few. There are also outlying districts that are within a short drive of Enid-proper. As a former educator, I believe you should tour the schools you may be interested in sending your children. Meet with teachers, administration, attend an event and find the school that is right for your family.
    It is well worth the effort to ensure your child is in the right school for your family!

    With the standard February-Oklahoma weather fluctuating between bitter winter and early spring, any day warm enough is a day for Enid Walking Trail! This section of the trail is near Meadow Lake Park, a diversion from days inside. You can frequently see families strolling along the trail or individuals running or biking. This is a great addition to Enid, and if you give it a chance, you'll see why so many enjoy a day "warm enough" out on the trail!
  • If you're a runner and looking to move to Enid, rest assured, there are trails to run, clubs to join and racing events for you. Most serious runners are familiar with the Enid Running Club; they welcome runners of all different ages, sizes and capability. See the link below for current meeting places and times, but you can count on at least one run per week. They are usually up and at 'em earlier than I care to be, but I always see them at the races throughout the year. They have some fun weekly runs including the Pub Run that ends at Callahan's Pub in down town.

    Enid's annual events include the JWL's Warm Your Heart fun run in February, the Red Dirt Run of Honor for Memorial Day, The Cherokee Strip Great Land Run in September to celebrate Enid's birthday, and the Candy Cane Dash just to name a few. You can also prepare for the Memorial marathon in Oklahoma City, just a two hour drive south of Enid.
  • If you're from another part of the country, you may think that winter in Oklahoma is probably mild, at least that's what this Colorado born and bred girl thought when I moved here three years ago. Not true, necessarily. While Enid only sees snow one or two times a year, and even then, probably not more than a few inches, temperatures can be wicked. The thermometer may say 30 degrees, but I swear it feels colder. Oklahoma, and Enid for sure, has more humidity and wind than many northern states and so the cold temps defiantly carry a punch. Oklahoma also sports "ice storms" which can take down trees and power lines in the winter months. There is a clear four-seasons here, and if you're moving to the area, don't ditch your winter gear. While we may not be knee-deep in snow, you'll still have more than enough opportunity to make use of your cold-weather accouterments.
  • Just yesterday I was sitting in construction traffic on one of Enid's main roads, Owen K. Garriott. I almost laughed out loud when I realized I was getting frustrated because I was in line behind eight other cars. Eight cars! Only in Enid is eight cars considered a traffic jam and I'm reminded of that every time I'm driving in Oklahoma City or Tulsa.

    Buyers often ask what the commute time is from one neighborhood to a local business. That is one of the beauties of Enid; anywhere is within no more than 20 minutes of anywhere else in town, maybe 30 minutes if you hit "rush hour." What Enid lacks in major retailers or restaurant chains, it more than makes up for in traffic, or lack thereof. I have been truly spoiled here and will miss Enid's simpler ways when we one day move to another part of the country.
  • Looking for grass-fed beef and local, fresh produce? Look no more! Rowdy Stickhorse is my go-to clean eating shop. From handmade goat's milk soaps to non-GMO sweet potatoes, this is the place in Northwest Oklahoma to find amazing beef steaks as well as natural alternatives for standard cleaning products. Whether I need a quick non-GMO meal on the go or a homeopathic solution for a cold, Rowdy Stickhorse is my first stop.

    Five80 is a great place, not just to hang out, it has great vintage charm, but it is also a way to give back. 10% of profits from Five80 go to local causes while 90% of profits fund digging water wells in Africa. Most recently, the leaders of this mission have worked to open a local outreach ministry. So grab a cup of java and help our community and our world!
  • Every parent in Enid knows about Leonardo's Children's Museum. Many likely have a membership, but at the very least, it's a place they visit once or twice a year. The museum is in the downtown area and is chock-full of hands-on exhibits and play areas designed to teach children about art and science. There is also an outdoor play area called Adventure Quest (they could easily call it The Giant Wooden Castle, in my opinion) that is a fantastic place for kids and adults alike to play. Leonardo's can host birthday parties as well as venue adult parties and fundraisers throughout the year. If you visit Enid for just a short time, or decide to call Enid home for years, you need to check out Leonardo's while you're here!
  • Enid just hosted a pretty big event; The 2014 Fireball Run. The Fireball Run is a reality-series race across America where teams compete to win, drum roll, please a plastic sign. Yep, it’s a philanthropic race to raise money and awareness for America's missing children. This year, Enid has a team both in the race led by Dr. David Vanhooser and Aaron Brownlee, and is a stop along the route.

    Enid was chosen because it is viewed as a progressive city with significant growth on the horizon. The event brought Enid a lot of attention both from world-wide viewers on the web, as well as the race participants themselves, many of which are American business leaders, visionaries and investors.
  • Out of town buyers are always interested in Enid schools and rightfully so since school districts can play an important roll in location value and resale potential of a home. Enid is an "open" school district meaning that you can enroll your children in any school you wish, provided there is room and you are willing to provide transportation to and from class each day. Having said that, the only way to guarantee your child a spot in a specific school is to live in that school's district. There are several schools that are always in high demand including Chisholm schools and Prairie View Elementary. I encourage buyers to conduct their own research to decide which school is the best fit for their children.

    For many, Enid's private schools are an excellent choice as well. Private school prices are much more affordable in Enid than in other parts of the country. We chose Cimarron Montessori for my daughter but there are several to choose from. Click the link below to view the district map.
  • As a former graphic designer, logos always catch my eye and I have to say, The City of Enid has one of the best. A few years ago, the city's logo was updated by Kevin Friesen with Friesen Design in Enid, and it reflects the city's history; the Cherokee Strip Land Run in 1893. Oklahoma had several land runs during that time, but this one was the largest and is how Enid was born. If you look closely, the "I" in Enid is a graphic depiction of a land stake and flag. You'll see the logo all over town, but my favorite is the large display on the south side of the event center; it welcomes everyone to the downtown area that may be driving in from the interstate.
  • Enid's Woodring Regional Airport is a great place for pilots passing through, as well as local pilots and instructor/student pilots from Vance Air Force Base, but it is also an important place for the citizens of Enid. Woodring is the location of Enid's new Vietnam War Memorial (a reduced scale replica of the memorial in D.C.) as well as memorial walls for Enid's own fallen warriors. Each year on Memorial Day weekend runners come to the airport to participate in Enid's Red Dirt Run of Honor. Runners sign up for either a 5k or half marathon to commemorate a fallen loved one or veteran from the community. It's easy to see that Enid is proud of its military members, past and present.
