Discover YUKON OK in OKC Metro 

Living in Yukon OK gives you the best of both worlds:  great city access with suburb quality of life and superior public safety. It's one of the fastest-growing communities in Oklahoma. These reasons and more make Yukon popular with professionals, families, and those with a discerning eye for real estate. With a population of over 27,500 residents, Yukon OK is still considered a small suburb located on the west side of the OKC Metroplex in Canadian County. 
If you are heading West on I-40 or historic Rt 66 you might want to stop and check out this friendly town.


This friendly city is one of the 'bedroom communities' in OKC Metro. It's well known for its robust Bohemian & Czech heritage. Lots of traditional events take place throughout the year to celebrate its heritage and Western tradition:
Chisholm Trail
Chisholm Trail Festival
Czech Festival

Yukon is home to such celebrities as singer Garth Brooks and actor Dale Robertson. And we shouldn't forget our famous Grady the Cow, of course!


YUKON was founded by A.N. Spencer, a cattleman from Texas, in 1891 and named after the Yukon River in Alaska.

Historically Yukon served as an urban center for local farmers and an area of a large milling operation. Yukon's Best Flour sign is still widely recognized. It was restored in 2013 and it brightly shines at night on the top of the iconic flour mill on historical Rt 66.

YUKON OK has been experiencing spectacular growth for over a decade. Still with such dynamic growth the community retained a small-town atmosphere. It prides itself to be friendly and family oriented.
Yukon, OK covers about 25 square miles and its population is about 27,500.

The area continues to grow in both the number of residents as well as retail spaces and a vigorous dining scene. Just recently Yukon welcomed Crest Foods - Oklahoma owned and operated since 1946. 

Being a long-time resident of Yukon OK, I witnessed a lot of great changes and tremendous growth of this town. Sometimes it seems like the progress happens too fast, however, I might be a little nostalgic.

I plan to write more about Yukon's history and its beginnings soon, so please watch for it. Or better yet, subscribe to my blog - LiveAndLoveOKC.com

The main commercial area which runs along Garth Brooks Blvd offers a vast array of shopping and great restaurants. Shop to your heart's desire. When you get tired and need more 'oomph' there is plenty of awesome restaurants to choose from like -  Johnny Carino's, Louies's, Chili's, Logan's, Johnny's, Alfredo's, McAlister Deli, and many more.

Experience great shopping along Historical Route 66 on Main Street ... from unique boutiques, specialty stores, and more small restaurants and cafes.

Stop by the iconic Yukon's Best Flour Mill - imagine that at one point this structure was 'responsible' for the prosperity of the town.

Yukonites are very proud of their giant four-legged ambassadors who reside at Express Ranches Clydesdales. These magnificent horses represent Yukon all over our Nation at special events. 
You might use this incredible facility as a wedding venue to celebrate your special day. It is truly an incredible place  ...
