Oklahoma is a beautiful state with so much to see and do, from the relaxed and charming Tulsa, to the more frenetic Oklahoma City with its lively Bricktown district. Whether you're roughing it in a tent in one of our state parks, or riding the length of historic Route 66, travel in Oklahoma is rewarding. We've tried to make it even more so with our Know It: Staycations guide, by giving you the knowledge to make the most out of your Oklahoma Staycation.
With money being tight for many Oklahomans, more people are planning “staycations,” the newest form of a vacation that costs less.
Staycation is defined by the Urban Dictionary as “a vacation that is spent at one’s home enjoying all that home and one’s home environment has to offer.” Many wonder exactly what that is, since the typical point of a vacation is to travel. However, it’s possible to get away even when staying close.
