The Big Friendly

Oklahoma City, known to many as the "Big Friendly," represents the political, cultural, and economic engine of the state of Oklahoma.

There's still lots to do: get curious at SKELETONS: Museum of Osteology, get engrossed in the history at Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum, explore the world behind art at National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden.

The Sooner State
Boasting a rich Native American heritage and named after the Choctaw word for "Red People," Oklahoma remains home to about 40 native tribes who speak 25 distinct languages. Though the state remains one of the country's top producers of agricultural products, most of its inhabitants live within two metropolitan areas, Oklahoma City and Tulsa. The state is home to the 500-million-year-old Wichita Mountains, noted for being the site of the oldest national wildlife refuge in the United States. Explore the state's pristine natural areas while on vacation here, but be sure to leave plenty of time to tour its characteristic small towns, known for their food, music, and cultural festivals.
