At HOME on the Prairie

Over the years we have worked with several people who are relocating to the Oklahoma City area, coming here for various jobs.

They often ask, “What does Oklahoma have to offer?” Oklahoma has a lot of great areas to explore across the entire state.

Alice recently visited Woolaroc museum and wildlife preserve, which is in Bartlesville.

There are also many other attractions in the NE corner of the state, like Grand lake, Keystone, Lake Eufaula and Tenkiller.  

In the NW corner of the state, there is Gloss Mountain, Little Sahara, Great Salt Plains and Roman Nose.  

In the SE, there’s Beavers Bend, Clayton Lake, Robbers Cave and Talimena.

In the SW, there’s Ft Cobb, Great Plains and Red Rock Canyon.  

And in the central part of the state, there is Lake Murray, Lake Texoma and Lake Thunderbird.   

The Oklahoma State Tourism Department has a great website where you can get brochures, handbooks and maps at the click of a button…and all for free.

If you have any friends or family relocating to Oklahoma, have them give Alice or me a call, we would love to help them out!

See ya next time!
