Whether you’re relocating to a new city to be closer to family, friends or for a new job, living in Yukon could be a positive experience compared to other cities in Oklahoma if you know where to look. With useful information like crime, cost of living, weather, education, housing and other key data points, finding the best places to live in Yukon and in the areas around Yukon is a much easier task.

Using data and statistics Yukon has received a livability score of 83 out of 100. This score is ranked in the 97th percentile when compared to all other cities. This is a terrific score, as Yukon ranks well in multiple categories! Yukon has also earned the rare honor of ranking in the top 10 percentile among all cities. If we consider each of the categories individually, we see that Yukon ranks well for amenities (A-), crime (A-), cost of living (A-) and education (A+). The bad news for Yukon, there are some categories for which it does not score well, this includes: housing (D-).

Conveniently located amenities and interesting attractions are a great way to continuously enjoy Yukon on a regular basis. Knowing that there are an abundance of amenities and things to do can ensure that you always have access to nearby grocery stores, restaurants and coffee shops.

Crime rates can be the deciding factor for anyone looking to relocate to a new area. Yukon gets top scores for their low violent crime rates of 137 crimes per 100,000 residents, which are significantly lower than the national average.

The average school test scores in Yukon are 80%. This far exceeds the national average and ensures that this educational system will provide your children with the skills and the tools they need to thrive.

Assuming that Yukon meets all of your requirements, the next most important item to examine is the affordability of real estate in Yukon. Everything else becomes a lot less important if it turns out that home prices in Yukon are simply unattainable. The median home price for Yukon homes is $130,500, which is 7.6% higher than the Oklahoma average. If we take a closer look at the affordability of homes in Yukon, we’ll see that the home price to income ratio is 2, which is 20% lower than the Oklahoma average. Knowing if your home will appreciate on a long term or even a short term basis should be factored into your decision making. An increase in your home’s value can be a good way to generate tax-free equity that can create long term financial security. In the past year, appreciation rates for homes in the Yukon area were 3.6% and 5 year appreciation rates were 3%.

I have been living in Yukon for 7 years now, and used to live in Maryland. I am 37 years old. Married. Came here because of the Military.

Pros:
1. Low cost of living. One can buy a nice house here for 175k. However, all home builders, like Mexican tele-novella producers, have become predictable and boring. There is no aesthetic appeal.
2. Close to OKC and the Downtown attractions like going to see a Thunder game. From where I live, close to I-40, one can be in Downtown in 12 minutes and there is very little traffic.
3. Schools are good, thought not excellent. Like everywhere else, I have seen many teachers here that don't care much and seem to have become teachers just to have a job. A brand new HS was just built and looks beautiful.
4. Food prices, like everywhere in Oklahoma, food is cheap.
5. Natural gas and gasoline prices are cheap, as well. So heating up your house in the winter is cheap as well as driving to work.
6. Low crime, though lately there has been an increase in break-ins. Overall, however, crime is low.
7. If you are religious, it wont take you long to make friends and get that 'social support' that attending a church tends to provide one with.
8. More businesses are moving in every month. Indeed, in the last 5 years Yukon has become more like a real American suburb and not just a municipality where police officers would write speeding tickets to an unsuspected passer by.
9. The annual Christmas light show.
10. The job market, even with the collapse of oil prices, there are still plenty of jobs around.


CONS:
1. Too damn conservative and religious. Most people here, and in all Oklahoma for that matter, see themselves holier than a Victorian nun in a nudist beach and think of Ronald Reagan as a semi-god.
2. Our city council and mayor are too old and don't seem to have the vision to beautify the city with sidewalks, parks, and trees.
3. The weather. Ice storms. Tornados. Too damn windy. And lately, though up to now small, earthquakes have become a daily occurrence.
4. The soil. If you enjoy gardening, the soil here is nothing but clay. Specially recently compacted clay, its the worse.
5. Not enough good and/or diverse restaurants. Beside fast-food, a few American chain restaurants that are now passé, and a host of bad Mexican restaurants, there are no good places like other cities in the east coast or like in Dallas.
6. No culture of reading or watching a foreign film, for example. Indeed, there is not even a good theater in town. Most young people go to OKC to watch a movie.
7. Though generally most residents here are accepting, there is still a strong sentiment of anti gay, anti immigrant, and (of course) now anti Muslim in general.
8. Tabaco chewing. Why would anyone, specially young people, would want to walk around with a ball of Tabaco in their mouth and a spit bottle on one hand is hard to comprehend.
9. Low paying jobs. It you don't have specialized training, most jobs only pay 8 to 9 dollars per hour.
10. Local News and their so called expert scientists weather people.

Yukon, OK is to me one of the best places you could live in America. Great people, great schools, and low cost of living. The housing is inexpensive compared to other places and the property taxes are in line.

The people here go to Church and still pray in school. ( it's our right). We are a conservative community that believes in God, family, country, loyality, honesty and the right to bare arms. We love America.

We do not have a very deverse population caused by what we believe in I guess, but we love all people and welcome those who are hard working God fearing true blooded lovers of this country,
