The Unique Town In Oklahoma That’s Anything But Ordinary
Carlton Landing is Oklahoma’s newest town that is anything but ordinary. Situated on the rolling hills overlooking Lake Eufaula, Carlton Landing is a New Urbanist town where you might feel more like you’re in Seaside, Florida than in Eufaula, Oklahoma. Southern Living called this charming eco-friendly town a “storybook town” and we couldn’t agree more.
The moment you enter Carlton Landing you'll feel like you're in a small beach town in Florida. The town was designed so that you never had to leave for anything.
