Welcome to Moore
Moore is a sizable city – the seventh-largest in Oklahoma, in fact. Yet the community retains a distinct and comfortable sense of place, with an easy lifestyle that holds broad appeal and amenities for every age. It’s scenic, too, with tree-lined streets and shady canopies lending to quiet surroundings.
It’s only 20 minutes from Will Rogers World Airport, Tinker Air Force Base, the University of Oklahoma, and downtown Oklahoma City, the state’s largest municipality, with nearly 600,000 residents.
Moore will continue to be ever-changing as businesses and citizens discover the lifestyle of Moore.
