OKCTalk has done a great job gathering information for what is up and coming in The Paseo District. We had to share!

The Paseo is one of Oklahoma City's first urban districts, blending arts and culture and eclectic businesses and surrounded by an interesting mix of housing of all types.

After decades of watching other districts like The Plaza and Midtown and neighoring Uptown get all the attention with lots of new restaurants, bars and retail, The Paseo is now in the middle of a new wave of expansion and redevelopment that is bringing new life and interest to the area, along with growing crowds.

One of the district's anchors and biggest draws, the well-loved Picasso Cafe, continues it's popular run after a modest but impactful renovation.

Our friends at Zillow shared this amazing story of a family converting a school bus into their home and we love how they embodied our mantra of "It's not just where you live... It's how you live".

The wheels on the bus go round and round — and then might stop for family dinner, if you’re Gabriel and Debbie Mayes.
