In Oklahoma, grand American highways run through hills of dusk-red rock, past lakes and forests, leading to cities packed with museums and sports grounds.

Oklahoma is a state where Americana reigns supreme, a place shaped by American Indians, cowboys, pioneers and innovative cities. Drive along Route 66 through dramatic landscapes that hark back to the old west. Stop on your roadtrip in stylish cities and old-world ranches, where you can learn about the layered history of the state.

More than many other states, Oklahoma has a history inextricably tied to the Native American peoples that live here. The 39 different Native American nations based in the state have shaped the history of the region. Visit museums such as the Cherokee Heritage Center and the Five Civilized Tribes Museum to learn about American Indian history.

Explore Oklahoma City, the state capital, where you can enjoy classic American entertainment such as sports matches and cattle markets in Stockyards City. Work on your lasso skills at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum or meet the wildlife of the plains in OKC Zoo.

Enjoy elegant cultural attractions in Tulsa, home of acclaimed galleries such as the Philbrook Museum of Art. The city is a popular destination with music enthusiasts, who relish the stories in the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame and the Woody Guthrie Center.

Oklahoma’s landscapes promise both serenity and adventure. Spend a peaceful day fishing in one of over 200 lakes in the state. Lake Eufaula is the largest, while Lake Texoma tempts anglers with the hope of catching stripers.

Hike, bike or kayak into the wilderness. Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge offers the chance to spot buffalo, elk and deer roaming the plains on hikes up accessible peaks. Climb up or rappel down the colorful cliffs in Red Rock Canyon State Park.

Fly into Oklahoma City to land in the geographic center of the state. Oklahoma is torn between two different climates, combining the dryness of Texas with the humidity of the southeast. Come in summer for festivals and outdoor activities or fall for milder days and a lower chance of tornadoes.
