Living In Oklahoma
Oklahoma is a beautiful and well-kept American secret. Not many people think biodiversity or vibrant cityscapes when they think Oklahoma, but we guarantee you will have plenty of fun stuff to do if you take an assignment in this southern jewel.
The Sooner State’s unique location at the junction of various geographic regions makes it an outdoor PTs playground. It’s got mountains, lakes, forests, rivers, and prairies. And although OK is usually considered hot and humid, you can in fact experience all four seasons within its borders. A few of the natural wonders you may want to check out while you’re on assignment are:
- Wichita Mountains
- Grand Lake
- Natural Falls State Park
- Travertine Creek
- Beavers Bend State Park
- The Bathtub Rocks
If the outdoors aren’t quite your thing, don’t worry, Oklahoma still has much to offer. If you're a history lover, much of American Indian, especially Cherokee history, can be explored here. Tahlequah, Oklahoma is in fact the capital of the 19th-Century Cherokee Nation.
In terms of city escapes, a traveler can find endless venues for entertainment. You can catch a college football game at the Oklahoma Memorial Stadium or visit the world-renowned Eskimo Joe's in Stillwater, OK. You can also delve into the newest trends in Bricktown, downtown OKC. Oh, and don’t leave the state without trying a a fried bologna sandwich or some local BBQ.
