Museums, heritage centers and outfitters preserve the cowboy spirit while working ranches and lively auctions let you live it. The Western influence is strong in this state, which offers outdoorsy-types many classic cowboy pastimes like roping, riding and hanging out by the campfire. Oklahoma is proud of its Native American roots and gives visitors plenty of ways to connect with that history. From exploring the parks and forests that played host to the earliest American Indians to learning their stories at museums and education centers and staying the night in a traditional tipi, the rich heritage of indigenous peoples surrounds you. Take a wild ride on an ATV in Little Sahara State Park, scuba dive Lake Tenkiller or visit the art galleries and restaurants of downtown Oklahoma City; there’s as much to do inside as there is to do outside in Oklahoma, making it a true something-for-everyone kind of place.
