Midwest City is part of the Oklahoma City Metropolitan Area. Tinker Air Force Base is at the center of the commercial district. There are many restaurants and attractions located around the base to keep the residents busy. Development in MWC has hit a boom in the last few years. The Reed Center, which was built in 2003, has set the footing for many business in the area. The new Town Center Plaza is a main shopping district in the area. It houses business such as Lowe's, Target, Home Depot and Best Buy.
With the convenience that this city has to offer combined with the proximity of Tinker AFB, it is easy to understand why many Oklahomans choose Midwest City for their hometown.
