Our southwestern flair, spectacular sunsets, wide-open spaces, and deep Native American roots combine with our friendly reputation to create an authentically Oklahoman experience. Shawnee, is home to the only ancient Egyptian mummies in Oklahoma, the International Finals Youth Rodeo, four Native American tribes, and over a dozen Bald Eagles. Centrally located just 40 miles east of Oklahoma City, we’re a great destination for a weekend trip or your next meeting or event.

VISITOR INFORMATION CENTER

Our friendly staff is the best source for information on Shawnee; we can point you in the right direction for the best shopping and dining experiences in town.

In 1941, the state legislature designated Shawnee as Oklahoma’s “Redbud City.” Redbud Trees can be found blooming throughout the community in the spring.
