TRAVELOK.COM Oklahoma’s official tourism website can show you how to plan your one-of-a-kind adventure in the Sooner State.

OUR TIME TO SHINE Beginning on page 15, we’ll show you a few of the people and places that make Oklahoma special—and make us proud to call this state home. The first section is presented by theme—Outdoor Adventure and Route 66, for example—while the second, beginning on page 51, highlights each of our six travel regions. TO FIND A SPECIFIC ATTRACTION OR CITY Comprehensive listings of attractions like museums, historic sites, and amusement parks begin on page 89 and are

arranged alphabetically by city. You’ll also find an attractions and city index on pages 178-184. TO FIND A PLACE TO STAY Accommodations are listed alphabetically by city beginning on page 154 and are colorcoded by type: hotels and motels, bed and breakfasts, and cabins, cottages, and guest ranches. Accommodation chains, such as Courtyard by Marriott, are grouped together. TO FIND STATE PARKS AND CASINOS Offering both attractions and accommodations, state parks

and casinos are presented in two grids on pages 174-177. OTHER TIPS For travel tools to use while in Oklahoma, turn to pages 8-9; you’ll find a primer on the resources available at TravelOK.com on page 11; and take a peek at pages 12-13 for other free brochures tailored to your interest. CALL AHEAD We’ve done our best to provide the most recent, up-to-date information available on Oklahoma’s travel destinations, but it’s always a good idea to call ahead to confirm your itinerary.

HISTORY

OKLAHOMA

LADIES FIRST In the early 20th century, women flew airplanes, but they didn’t race them until the first National Women’s Air Derby in August 1929. Observing many of the 20 pilots checking their compacts one last time before boarding their planes, Will Rogers dubbed the event “The Powder Puff Derby.” The camaraderie that emerged during the nine-day flight from Santa Monica to Cleveland inspired the creation of a formal organization to support women in aviation. That November, The Ninety-Nines was formed, named for its 99 charter members. Amelia Earhart became its first elected president in 1931. The organization has grown to include nearly 5,000 members in 44 countries, and since 1975, its international headquarters has been at Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City. Located on the second floor of their offices, the NinetyNines Museum of Women Pilots chronicles the role of female aviators in aeronautics through its library, archives, and artifacts like the “lucky” bracelet Amelia Earhart left behind on her final flight.

FORT SILL, LISHA NEWMAN/OKLAHOMA TOURISM

ON THE BATTLEFRONT With 5,000 members in the cavalry and infantry, African American military personnel known as buffalo soldiers accounted for 10 percent of the forces charged with maintaining peace on the western frontier during the Indian War period of the latter 19th century. During the Civil War, their infantry units were stationed at Fort Gibson near Muskogee (918/4784088 or okhistory.org), and the 10th Cavalry aided in the construction of Fort Sill near Lawton in the 1870s (580/442-5123 or sill-www.army.mil/museum). El Reno’s Fort Reno (405/262-3987 or fortreno.org) and Fort Supply, near Woodward (580/766-3767 or okhistory.org), also served as outposts for black units.

Not only did he conceive of what has become a legendary transcontinental highway with more drivable miles in Oklahoma than any other state, he coined the term “Main Street of America” and became known as the Father of Route 66. Later, Lucille Hamons’ hospitality as a service station proprietor earned her the title “Mother of the Mother Road,” placing

Rising from the southwestern Oklahoma prairies, the stately, rugged Wichita Mountains are one of America’s oldest mountain ranges. Here, visitors can wander among bison, longhorn cattle herds, elk, deer, and prairie dogs on the nearly 60,000-acre Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge (580/429-3222 or fws.gov/refuge/wichita_mountains), take in a stunning panorama atop 2,464-foot-tall Mount Scott, and watch an Easter passion play at the Holy City of the Wichitas (580/429-3361 or theholycitylawton. com). Opportunities for hiking, camping, rock climbing, mountain biking, and rappelling make the Wichitas a one-of-a-kind destination.

OUACHITA, WASHITA, WICHITA— WHICH IS IT? Although all three derive from the Native American word, in Oklahoma they have distinct meanings. Wichita (wich-i-tah) denotes the Plains tribe headquartered in southwest Oklahoma, the mountains in the same area, and the city in Kansas. Ouachita (wosh-i-taw) takes the French spelling of the tribe’s name and refers to the mountain range spanning Oklahoma and Arkansas. Pronounced identically, Washita is the spelling adopted by the former military post, Fort Washita, outside Durant.

Southeastern Oklahoma is known for lush, green hills and natural beauty, and its most prominent jewel is the Ouachita National Forest (www.fs.usda.gov/ouachita). Oklahoma’s portion of the protected area it shares with Arkansas—351,068 acres—is a bounty for mountain bikers, hikers, equestrians, and hang gliders. Bisecting the forest across the Ouachita Mountains is the Talimena Scenic Drive (talimenascenicdrive.com). With 54 miles of panoramic views and historic sites between Talihina, Oklahoma, and Mena, Arkansas, the drive is an inspiring introduction to the region.

Natural rock formations like “Wedding Party” and “Old Maid” crown the area’s buttes and shrubs, and the cool, arid climate draws resilient species like cholla cacti and bighorn sheep.
