Lawton is the fifth most populous city in Oklahoma and is the county seat of Comanche County. Located in southwestern Oklahoma, Lawton’s landscape consists of prairie, few trees, and flat topography with gently rolling hills. Lawton has a humid subtropical climate and lies in Tornado Alley. Going back in history, Fort Sill was established in 1869. The federal government gained control of over 2,000,000 acres of surplus Indian land in 1901, which is when Lawton was established and designated as the Comanche County seat. Both Fort Sill and Lawton experienced major growth when the United States entered into World War I. Today Lawton has a population of 96,867 and the racial makeup of the city is 60.3% White, 21.4% African American, 12.6% Hispanic, and 2.6% Asian (2010 Census). Unfortunately Lawton’s crime rate is so high that it is among the top five most dangerous cities in Oklahoma. When it comes to the economy, Fort Sill is the largest employer in the city. Other sectors of the economy include manufacturing, health care, retail, higher education, and government. Lawton is home to Cameron University, the largest university in southwest Oklahoma. Lawton is also home to 80 parks and recreation areas and is located near three major lakes.

Ardmore is a city in Oklahoma and is the county seat of Carter County. Ardmore is located in one of the most oil-rich regions of the United States and was named after Ardmore, Pennsylvania. Going back in history, Ardmore was established in 1887 when the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway passed through the area. When one of the largest oil fields ever produced in Oklahoma was discovered in 1913, Carter County became the largest oil-producing county in the state and Ardmore became an energy center for the region. Today Ardmore has a population of 24,283 and the racial makeup of the city is 73.0% White, 11.3% African American, 3.7% Hispanic, and 1.0% Asian (2010 Census). For such a small city, the crime rate is extremely high, which makes Ardmore the most dangerous city in Oklahoma. When it comes to the economy, Ardmore is the principal hub of trade for a ten-county region of South Central Oklahoma. Points of interest in the city include the Tucker Tower Nature Center, the Greater Southwest Historical Museum, the Ardmore Regional Park, the Lake Murray State Park, and the Gold Mountain Casino.
