Enid Apartments For Rent
Knock. Knock. Who’s there? Enid. Enid who? “Enid” okay to live in an Enid OK apartment?
You are most definitely right; this place is A-OK! A great place to raise a family, get an education, or even ride a bike around the block – this is Enid, Oklahoma, a quirky little town that was named after a character in Lord Tennyson’s poem, Idylls of the King. “Enid the Fair” was quite beautiful – so much so that she inspired the man in charge of the railroad station at the time (then called Skeleton Station) to rename the station to Enid.
Well. That’s one story. The other claims it has something to do with cowboys playing a practical joke and reversing a chuck wagon sign that read “DINE.” However, the romantic story involving the fair and just heroine of Tennyson’s poem is more widely accepted.
Enid offers great shopping and amazing attractions sure to draw you in. Enid is friendly, upbeat, and positive. Does that sound too good to be true? It isn’t! You’ll be very happy you chose to rent an apartment in Enid – here’s why!
