    Oklahoma Guide

    RE-LIVE COWBOY + NATIVE AMERICAN HISTORY

    Oklahoma is a state of indeterminate location and character. While it may lack may not boast the rugged canyons and pastel skies of New Mexico or Arizona, but the Sooner State’s identity is equally distinctive and very much a legacy of the Old West. Today Oklahoma has the second largest Indian population in the United States, and its also has a strong African-American heritage is also strong. Both of these populations provide visitors with rich historic, cultural history and artistic experiences.
    Encounters such as powwows, craft festivals and traditional storytelling all signify theat great cultural history which Oklahoma offers its visitors heritage. Events also pay homage to the cowboys of history, with more than 100 rodeos taking place in Oklahoma each year. in which Modern-day cowboys compete in calf-roping, steer-wrestling and bull-riding events.

    ENJOY THE GREAT OUTDOORS

    The flat, fertile land of the central region is only one part of Oklahoma's diverse terrain. In the east, the prairies give way to rugged mountains and dense forests. This region, today a favourite of rappellers, hikers and equestrians, was once a favourite of outlaws as well. Robbers Cave State Park served as a hideout for such notorious fugitives as Jesse James and Belle Starr. The Broken Bow area is also popular with lovers of the outdoors. Its fly-fishing and boating opportunities also make it a top holiday spot. In the north, the grasslands shift again into one of Oklahoma's most intriguing natural wonders, the Great Salt Plains, literally an 8,690-acre sea of salt, and in the west lie the Beaver Dunes, where adventurous visitors can rev up dune buggies or ARVs and race down sandy slopes

    ABSORB CITY LIFE; FOLLOW LEGENDARY ROUTE 66 + THE OIL PROSPECTORS

    While Oklahoma as a whole tends to be conservative and inspires nostalgia for a slower pace and simpler life, sophistication is not precluded. The vision and sensitivity with which the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum were established, in honour of those who died in the 1995 bombing, attest to this. The city’s National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum is truly world class, and downtown its Bricktown entertainment district and inspiring botanical gardens complete an intriguing picture. So do the state's well-preserved architectural gems, remnants of the Oklahoma oil boom of the 1920s and 1930s. Visitors in search of travel kitsch will find landmarks in roadside architecture, including the Blue Whale and Totem Pole Park.

    Carving a vibrant path through the state, from the Kansas to the Texas state lines, Route 66 takes in Tulsa, Oklahoma City and Elk City - abundant with Mother Road attractions, from diners to museums, antique stores to quirky shops of all kinds.

    It is safe to say that Oklahoma is a destination offering visitors vibrant culture, colourful history and a great feeling of the Old West.
