If you want to find some fun things to do in northeast Oklahoma, look no farther than Osage County.  You will be surprised at what the small towns and local attractions have to offer on your road trip.

It will be a diverse experience as you visit the towns of Skiatook, Hominy, Pawhuska, Fairfax, Barnsdall and more.  It is laid-back restful, outdoor recreation with plenty of lakes, real life cowboys and rodeos, places to eat and sleep, exciting casinos, Osage Nation heritage, museums and the Tallgrass Prairie – perhaps the best example of the prairie ecosystem left in the world.  There is even an English garden in Shidler and each August enjoy classic cars at the Annual One Day Car Show.
