We’re back! We’ve moved the blog to WordPress, and we’re ready to get back to touring this great state! Kicking off our return to the web is this great article written by guest blogger Kristi, who recently visited Black Mesa in the Oklahoma panhandle. The Black Mesa, I have come to discover, is one of … Continue reading
Don’t you just love fall? My family just got back from a trip (actually outside of Oklahoma this time) and the delightful fall weather welcomed us home. Our first weekend back, we headed out to the pumpkin patch – one of our favorite autumn traditions.
We took the family to the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum recently. I had been to the Memorial several times, but not the museum. The admission price of $10 for adults and $6 for children always seemed a little high to me. For our family, that’s $32, and that’s just because the baby doesn’t … Continue reading
We hit the State Fair last night, Okie Tourist style, with stroller and bags and all the things it seems to take to make a family outing complete. We tried to do it on the cheap, although we spent $21 on corndogs, lemonade and chicken-on-a-stick to feed our family of 5. Not bad. Of course, … Continue reading

We just figured out who is the lucky winner of four free Frontier City tickets! This being our first drawing, we wanted it to be as fair as possible. We went through each post and numbered each comment in the order it was received. Then we weeded out the relatives’ comments and any doubles on … Continue reading
I have to get this out in the open first. This review may be slightly biased because I seriously love Frontier City. Read more » Original post blogged on b2evolution.

All you have to do is comment on any of the reviews or posts on The Okie Tourist. On Sept. 12, we’ll draw one name from all commenters and … Continue reading
I have to admit – I was a little worried before our visit to White Water Bay this weekend. I did my regular online search beforehand, and the reviews I saw didn’t shine a good light on the place. I read about broken rides, awful lines, smelly astroturf and rude staff. But we gathered up … Continue reading
