Hi James,
I suggest you contact the Oklahoma Tourist Dept. and get your free tourist book of the area and look thru the different areas and things to see & do that correspond to your route/travels..Oklahoma is a very diverse geographical state,so different areas have different highlights.. then you can match up the things that are available with your interests.
Norman ( a little South of Oklahoma City) is a super pretty College town with a vibrant music scene and EXCELLENT pizza at HIDEAWAY PIZZA on Campus Corner area.The Bluedoor is the BEST place for music in Oklahoma City and TAP WORKS in BRICKTOWN area of OKCITY has lots of beers from EVERYwhere!! ..
If you pinpoint when in summer you're coming thru..i can let you know about Music festivals in the area at that time.
also going south on interstate 35 to Texas..i recommend TURNER FALLS/Sulphur/Davis area..beautiful and there's a new Indian cultural Center there as well that is worth a visit to.. the Chickasha Cultural Center..
I would be happy to 'guide" you thru some of "my area" highlights IF I know WHEN you will be coming thru..
happy trails..
Marie Soleil in beautiful rural Blanchard,Ok..

Hi James,

Tulsa is a fun place to go to. There are many fun things to do downtown.

If you would be interested in going a bit off the beaten path, a place to go to during the summer is Talequah. There is a play that is performed there throughout the summer that recounts the Trail of Tears that the Cherokees endured while being moved to OK.

Let me know what you plans are.

Thanks!

Bret

No problem! I just looked up where Lafayette Hill is. It's not too far from where I had an apt. several years ago. I was in Morrisville, and had a job across the DE river in NJ. I haven't had a real hoaggie in ages. Miss them! Can't get the real deal around here. When I go back there, I frequent a place in Claymont, DE to get my hoaggies. Yum!

Anyway, depending on how my job situation goes, I hope I get to meet you.

Hi James,

Just keep in mind it's HOT and humid here in August ;-) But don't let that stop you.

If you do go to Tahlequah, some people enjoy a canoe or raft trip down the Illinois River there - it's not any white water rafting experience, it's just kind of a nice 'plodding along' pace.

Are you going to hit the old Route 66? It'll take you through a lot of small towns.

are you going early, mid or late August?

The Labor Day weekend is the Cherokee National Holiday in Tahlequah and the Dusk Til Dawn Blues Festival in a small town called Rentiesville.

I believe there is a travelok website that is pretty good too.

It all depends on what you want to see...

Does anyone remember what month Rocklahoma is in?
