If you’re moving to Odessa from another spot in Texas, you may already know that it’s known for football and friendly people. If you’re moving to Odessa from out-of-state, you may have only heard of its oil and natural resources. Although these things are all a big part of the city of Odessa, it also has a lot more to offer.

Odessa has a growing population, but still retains its pastoral atmosphere. With low crime rates, neighborly ways and sense of community, it’s a great place to raise a family. From cozy neighborhoods to urban dwellings, Odessa is truly a modern city with small-town southern charm.

Football is King (but not the only game in town).
After moving to Odessa, you can enjoy the natural beauty found in each of the 35 parks. You can also catch a play at Shakespeare Theater or hear a symphony with The Midland-Odessa Symphony & Chorale. But to experience a true Texas tradition, take in a high school football game.

Ratliff Stadium was featured in Friday Night Lights, a movie based on a true story of the Permian Panthers. This high school football team has won the State Championship six times and continues to fight for the title every year. People of all ages come out to cheer this great team.

Business is Booming.
Even now, a number of commercial businesses are moving to Odessa, adding more things to do in the city and creating many new jobs. Not only is the Odessa economy getting back on its feet, but with Midland only about 20 minutes away, residents can easily commute to work there as well.
