American Fidelity is proud to be a Company founded and headquartered in Oklahoma City. For more than 50 years, AFA has made a priority of supporting the community and people in the place it calls home. But what makes our city such a great place to live and work? The first answer you’ll get from locals will almost always be “the people,” and that is probably the correct answer. But what other discoveries await you in our city on the plains? Looking for a little culture in your life? OKC is home to renowned museums such as the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, which houses one of the world’s most comprehensive collection of Dale Chihuly glass, or The National Western & Cowboy Heritage Museum, which contains seemingly endless amounts of Western art, history and culture. Local galleries – like those you’ll find in Oklahoma City’s Paseo Art District – display art from local and national contemporary artists that you may like just enough to take home with you. The Lyric Theatre hosts Broadway-sized productions featuring some of the greatest talent from around the world. Kids and adults both love the excitement that’s found in OKC’s Adventure District. Home to such attractions as Science Museum Oklahoma and the award-winning Oklahoma City Zoo, the Adventure District is home to some of the city’s most popular destinations. Dining and nightlife abound in neighborhoods such as downtown OKC’s Bricktown and the super-hip Plaza District. The Uptown 23rd district is located right around the corner from our Home Office and just so happens to be my favorite place to grab lunch. The Asian District – literally just north of AFA’s Classen location – is world famous for its endless selections of Asian cuisine and culture. Midtown is an excellent place to grab a drink with friends, while the shopping at Classen Curve is unbeatable. Of course, we can’t talk about Oklahoma City and not mention our very own NBA team, the Oklahoma City Thunder! There’s so much more to love about OKC. The people are friendly, the sunsets are beautiful, traffic’s never terrible (well, most of the time), we have a low unemployment rate compared to the rest of the country and the cost of living has to be seen to be believed! American Fidelity firmly believes in doing its part to help make our city great! Whether raising money for Allied Arts, supporting great festivals and events or supporting local charities, AFA realizes the importance of contributing to the city and people that have made our Company the success it is. You can see why we’re proud to call Oklahoma City home. Interested in relocating to OKC? Check out these resources. Already lucky enough to live here? Let us know why you love OKC?
