Holidays in Oklahoma

Against the sweeping backdrop of the Great Plains, the Sooner State sits right in the heart of the USA. Holidays to Oklahoma are all about getting back to the days of the Old West, where buffalo grazed on the prairie and Stetson toting cowboys drove their cattle. In fact, driving through the open range, you might be forgiven for thinking you had gone back in time. The buffalo still graze, the cowboys still herd cattle and where Native Americans do have powwows.

Oklahoma gets its name from the ‘Okla Homma’, the Red People, a title given by the Choctaw Indians to the native population. But there are now 39 Indian Nation tribal headquarters represented in the state, a fact that can be traced back to the early 19th century, when President Jefferson earmarked the land west of the Mississippi as Indian Territory. The Trail of Tears marks the route these forcibly relocated tribes would have taken into the state and there are many cultural centres and fascinating museums to discover.

On the other side of the Wild West coin, cowboys also feature prominently on Oklahoma holidays. Whether you want to saddle up and ride the ranch, buy your next pair of Wranglers and cowboy boots or watch cattle being auctioned at the Oklahoma City National Stockyards, there are plenty of opportunities to immerse yourself in cowboy culture. And if country music is your thing, there are some great venues to strut your Western wear and hear live bands play.

Other highlights of Oklahoma include beautiful scenic byways as well as the Mother Road, Route 66, linking iconic sights and myriad atmospheric old towns. So, saddle up or fill up your tank and make sure you pack the camera so that you can get ready to enjoy some of Oklahoma’s Old West attractions.

Top destinations for your next Oklahoma Holiday

​​

Powwows

There are more than 30 powwows taking place each year in Oklahoma, many of them open to the public. These events are a great way to learn more about Native American culture, with dance competitions, traditional music and stalls selling traditional food and crafts. If you want to find out more, the Cherokee Heritage Center in Tahlequah, just southeast of Tulsa, the Standing Bear Memorial Park & Museum in Ponca City, and the modern multimedia Chickasaw Cultural Center in Sulphur are fascinating places to visit.

Route 66

Nothing conjures up the open road more than Route 66 and Oklahoma State boasts a large chunk of this famous highway. Watch out for the Blue Whale in Catooga, the Round Barn in Arcadia and the Totem Pole Park in Foyil. You might also like to stop for a look at the National Route 66 Museum in Elk City or a glass of pop at POPS, a petrol station/ diner offering almost 600 different varieties of soft drink to go with your hot dog or hamburger.

Woolaroc

Outside Bartlesville, in the rolling Osage Hills of Osage County, Woolaroc was once the summer home of oil industrialist Frank Phillips. There’s a wonderful museum collection of Native American artwork, artefacts and Western-themed paintings, and the drive here is through unspoilt prairie dotted with buffalo and pronghorn. Afterwards, consider a drive on to the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve, north of Pawhuska.
