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. Despite the consistent growth, Moore has been able to maintain an easy lifestyle that holds broad appeal for every age. It’s scenic, too, with tree-lined streets and shady canopies lending to quiet surroundings.
Poised conveniently on Interstate 35, the largest route North-South in the central United States, Moore is a prime location. Being centrally located, Moore is only 20 minutes from Will Rogers World Airport and the Oklahoma City Metro with nearly, 600,000 residents. Tinker Air Force Base and the University of Oklahoma, two of the metro's largest employers, are quick commute away.
Moore will continue to be ever-changing as businesses and citizens discover the lifestyle of Moore.
