The region of central Oklahoma, known as Frontier Country, is a renowned vacation destination.

From the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum and nostalgic Route 66 to the hometowns of country music stars Toby Keith and Garth Brooks, central Oklahoma is undoubtedly the hub of Western culture-with a contemporary flair.

Like the covered wagons and buffalo herds that made the first ruts in Oklahoma’s red dirt, the Native Americans and pioneers who settled central Oklahoma made long-lasting impressions on the culture that shaped the great state.

One hundred years later, Oklahoma’s vibrant history has transformed the wide-open plains into a colorful, world-class destination.

A bit of Southern hospitality combined with Oklahoma pride rolled out the red carpet for Oklahoma’s centennial birthday in 2007, declared by the American Bus Association as the No. 1 event in the nation. 

This year, you’re invited to experience exhilarating festivals, awe-inspiring museums and secret treasured places found only in Central Oklahoma Frontier Country. It’s worth the trip!
