Living in Mustang OK

May 5, 2021

Just 15 miles southwest of Oklahoma City lies Mustang, a fast-growing suburban community that’s ideal for all types of homeowners—from working professionals and families to retirees and right-sizers. This close-knit town has a unique history, with its founding dating back to the Oklahoma Land Run of 1889. While Mustang’s economy has always been rooted in agriculture, it’s now a popular bedroom community for those working in the Oklahoma City area who want a slower pace of life and a smaller community to live in or raise their families in. Its popularity is why Homes by Taber continues to build new homes in Mustang.

Mustang’s focus on community means you can easily immerse yourself in activities and get to know your neighbors quickly—making it the perfect place to develop new friendships and enjoy new experiences. Mustang has a low crime rate, below both the OKC metro average and the state average. Read on for more information about the things to do around town, easy access to amenities and the highly rated schools that make Mustang such a desirable place to live. 

Activities and attractions

Mustang has ample entertainment and recreational opportunities in and around town, so residents can always find fun ways to spend their time. Wild Horse Park, a 158-acre park, features an aquatic center, large baseball complex, playgrounds, walking and biking trails, fenced dog park, soccer complex and more. One of the most popular attractions in town, it’s the ideal place to get some fresh air and stay active. 

Learn more about the town’s founding and history by taking a trip to the Mustang Historical Museum. Housed in an old brick building, you’ll find historical artifacts from the surrounding communities that date back to the 1800s, family heirlooms from early Mustang residents and other distinct exhibits. 

Every fall, residents and visitors alike participate in Mustang’s Western Days—an annual event featuring a rodeo, chili cook-off, best-dressed cowboy and cowgirl contests, music and more. 

Keeping the town’s rich agricultural history alive, residents and visitors can take their turn picking a variety of seasonal berries at Buffalo Creek Berry Farm or Agape House Berry Farm. Multiple farmers' markets offer great ways to support local businesses and get the freshest produce for your home-cooked meals. 

Speaking of meals, Mustang has plenty of dining options—from burgers and barbecue to pizza and Tex-Mex, there’s something for everyone to enjoy and many delivery services can help make any meal convenient. If you’re looking to taste some locally made wine, SandStone Spring Vineyard is the place to be. 

Highly rated Mustang schools

The residents of Mustang value the importance of a quality public education, which has helped Mustang Public Schools earn high ratings. With a community-focused mission of developing collaborative, self-confident learners, homeowners can rest assured that their children are learning from some of the best teachers in the area. All of the elementary and middle schools funnel up to one high school, Mustang High School, which earned a prestigious “10 out of 10” from GreatSchools for college readiness and has a 94 percent graduation rate. 

Easy access to nearby amenities

Living in Mustang gives homeowners all the perks of a peaceful small-town atmosphere with easy access to big-city amenities. This suburb is a quick drive to downtown Oklahoma City, where you can head for the day to shop, catch a Thunder game, dine at your favorite restaurants, browse galleries in the Paseo Arts District or explore the Myriad Botanical Gardens. Mustang is also conveniently located only ten miles east of Will Rogers World Airport for access to easy travel for work or fun. 

Homes by Taber communities

In addition to all of these perks, moving to Mustang also means you have the opportunity to live in one of our thoughtfully designed Mustang new home communities. And although many homebuilders are struggling to create new inventory right now, we’re proud to have the brand-new community of Canyons coming soon. Canyons will be in the Mustang school district, have plenty of functional floor plans to choose from and boast well-rounded amenities, like a private splash pad, playground, basketball court and pond. This new community is still in development, but those interested can join the VIP list—where you’ll be the first to receive information and updates about Canyons. 

If you’re looking to make the move to Mustang a little sooner, there’s limited available inventory in the Homes by Taber communities of Scissortail Springs and Pine Canyon. But you have to act fast, as our Mustang communities are known to sell out especially quickly. 

When you purchase a proudly overbuilt home from Homes by Taber, you’re getting the most bang for your buck—because we provide over $80,000 worth of upgrades that other builders will charge you for. We don’t believe in overcharging our homeowners for the features that make your new-construction house functional, safe and healthy. A Storm Safe storm shelter, state-of-the-art Healthy Home Technology, custom-built kitchen cabinets and a wood-burning fireplace in the outdoor living space just scratches the surface of what we include in each one of our homes

What are you waiting for? 

Over 20,000 residents have planted their roots in Mustang, and they’re excited to welcome you with open arms.

Our Happy Homeowners

Have lived in my Homes by Taber home for 6 months now. Everything has been great. The warranty group has addressed any issue with my house and surrounding areas while in the construction phase in a very timely manner. They made my first home purchase one that I still enjoy and get compliments on the design and appearance all the time.
