Interesting places to visit in Oklahoma

Oklahoma is a true hidden gem of state in the south of USA with stunning landscapes, historic sites and fun attractions so Oklahoma certainly offers more than meets the eye.

Oklahoma is home to the ever so popular Oklahoma's Route 66 filled with historical roadside landmarks, and attractions such as the Oklahoma Route 66 museum which shows an awesome display of vintage American cars.

Oklahoma also boasts many confederate forts, museums such as the Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center, and historic homes such as Sequoyah's Home.

Oklahoma was also the battleground for one of the bloodiest battles in Civil War history, and if you love history tours, you would love touring the actual battleground trails.

To give you an idea of things to see, I made a little list of interesting places to visit in Oklahoma that you're sure to enjoy exploring:

Oklahoma City

Oklahoma City is on my list of interesting places to visit in Oklahoma because of the many interesting things to do and fun attractions such as enjoying a tour onboard a Bricktown water taxi to take in the sights while a enjoying a narrated tour.

A few other attractions in Oklahoma City, I would suggest not missing out include include the: Oklahoma City National Memorial, the Oklahoma State Capitol and the National Cowboy & Western Heritage


The town of Norman is just half hour drive south of Oklahoma City and it’s a top destination worth adding to the list of interesting places to visit in Oklahoma because of the huge dinosaur Skeleton on display at Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History.

The dinosaur skeleton is something like you've never seen, and if you’re traveling with small kids and want to enjoy a fun day out, the museum makes for a cool day out checking out dinosaur exhibits and other displays.


A trip to Oklahoma wouldn’t be complete without visiting and exploring Tulsa’s lovely Art Deco buildings and many museums such as the Philbrook Museum of Art and the Gilcrease Museum where you can to learn about American art and history.

If you’re limited on time when visiting Tulsa, I’d suggest booking one of the Art Deco tours in town to make the most of your visit in Tulsa OK.

Apart from the architecture, beautiful streets and cultural attractions, Tulsa is also on my list of interesting places to visit in Oklahoma because of the gigantic statue of an oil worker called the Golden Driller. You have to see it to believe it!


Muskogee is just an hour’s drive southeast of Tulsa and a great location to base your vacation in Oklahoma as it isn’t too far Oklahoma City either.

Muskogee is also on my list of interesting places to visit because of Fort Gibson Historic Site and Fort Gibson National Cemetery nearby.

The fort itself makes for a very interesting tour, especially if you haven’t been in a fort before, and see a reconstructed log stockade, magazine and barracks.


The town of Checotah is another of the interesting places to visit in Oklahoma as it was one the scene of the bloody Civil War battle – the Honey Springs Battlefield.

If you’re a Civil War enthusiast, you’d love walking around the Interpretive Trails and reading the information markers scattered along the trails

Oklahoma’s Route 66

If you’re in the state for the first time, one of the most interesting places to visit in Oklahoma that wouldn’t want to miss, it’s driving along the famed Oklahoma’s Route 66, which is now designated as Interstate 44.

The actual drive along Oklahoma’s Route 66 would take you a couple of days to complete, although you don't have to do the complete route to get a filled of Route 66's historical significance.

My favorite section of the Oklahoma’s Route 66 it’s actually between Oklahoma City and Vinita because of landmarks such as the Blue Whale in Catoosa, the Francoma Pottery Factory in Sapulpa and the Round Barn in Arcadia.
