Oklahoma is an American Midwestern state best known for its lakes, forest and diverse landscape, such as the Great Plains.
The Great Plains are a truly stunning sight, with never-ending grassland rolling into the distance. Also in the state are some truly picturesque lakes and waterfalls to be found, such as Turner Falls, which is a 77-feet-wide waterfall, plunging into a natural swimming pool. Elsewhere, Chickasaw National Recreation Area is a lakefront park with hiking trails.
For culture and nightlife, head to Oklahoma City, the state’s capital. To find out more about the history of pioneers and cowboys visit the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum. For buzzing nightlife, there’s the Bricktown district.
The best time to visit Oklahoma is in the summer months of June, July and August when you can explore the state’s outdoor parks.
