Sallisaw Oklahoma, I've only lived here my entire life so lets see.

The crime is so high because there isn't anything to do.

The cops are crooked and just as shady as criminals.

There's more Dollar Generals, Hotels, auto shops and mmj stores than we need. -

The school system is okay... just okay, since they built the new middle school.

when i was 12 i found a used condom and drug needles on the parking lot ground at the apartment building i lived in.

and a ton of people in this town are users so watch out.

Do Not Come Here.

Just a pass through town, not intended on long stay use.

I'll get out someday.. hopefully...

There is nothing to offer here

Nothing but two types of jails you could go to and a high school, maybe some fast food places to stop by and wait for half an hour oh and a Walmart.

this is just a town to pass by or stay in one of the bed bug infested hotel as you try to pass by. nothing else but people sticking to their roots because they don't want to leave "home"

I have lived in Sallisaw sense 1997. This town's crime rate is not the best and housing is too high if your trying too buy a home. I will be the first too tell you that everybody is up in everyone else's business and everybody is sleeping with everybody else's wife. The good thing,s about Sallisaw is the Farmers market and Cruse night, diamond days and the ppl are both friendly and jerk's. The casino is good for fun and there are places you can work such as slpt, avagen and celphom plus fast food restaurant,s. The view is beautiful and lake Tenkiller is not too far away neither is ft Smith Ark and there are lots off places too work. Every place has its own attitude and too know it you must first become part off it so good luck and may G*d Bless you on your journey where ever you decide too go.
