I had a really lovely and memorable experience when I stayed in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. I had gone to Broken Arrow to attend a Bible College for two years between 2002 - 2004. The people in the City of Broken Arrow were very nice and friendly. The people were warm, courteous and friendly from people you meet at the post office, bank, school, supermarket, church and recreation centers.

We often enjoyed dinner at Chedars Restaurant with friends and acquaintances. The Rooftop Bar also had great food, good service and a great view. There is also the Broken Arrow Community Playhouse with unusual and interesting plays, dance and performances. At Christmas time people will come to experience the lovely RHEMA Christmas lights. So beautiful to behold. Every Christmas the RHEMA Christmas lights gets even more impressive.
