Area Overview

Blanchard, Oklahoma is a fast growing community about 30 minutes south of the Oklahoma City metro area. Blanchard has a small town feel with festivals, parades, community events and so much more. We also enjoy a short drive to the metro when needed, but have the beauty of a more rural lifestyle with acreage available if desired. Residents enjoy the friendliness and close knit feeling of our community. We enjoy several restaurants with southern "home" cooking, a fresh, made as you order burrito/taco grill and many more. We have several boutiques in our quaint, historic downtown area for your shopping pleasures too!
