MckLinky Monday -Trips on a tankful

With Spring Break coming up Mrs. Montgomery from the RHOK asks -"What's some places to visit a few hours from your home?"
Well, as most of you know I live in Tulsa,OK and there are quite a few great things here in Tulsa. With that being said there are quite a few good places to visit not too far away as well -Here's not just 1 idea but, a few...

Going South and East about an hour away is Muskogee,Ok -in fact Muskogee has been named 1 of 12 distinctive destinations -you can even vote to make it number 1 until March 15,2011

I always like to visit Honor Heights park there's also the 5 Civilized Tribes Museum nearby among other attractions.
Another idea is taking a trip down historic Route 66 -You could go East or West -If you go west there's a popular restaurant you might've heard about POPS also near there you can also see Arcadia's Round Barn
And last but not least going even further west about 3-4 hours away is Lawton, Ok - 1 of the main attractions there is the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge where you can see buffalo, hike the mountains,-etc. There's also the historic Mattie Beal Home you can visit.

So, there you have it some fun trips on a tankful in Oklahoma :)

Be sure to join in the MckLinky Monday with the RHOK and share some trips on tankful!

Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge sounds wonderful....more than a tankful for me sad to say.

I used to go on field trips to the Azaela Festival in Muskogee. I grew up in the Pryor/Chouteau area and I'm quite familiar with Muskogee.

However, I haven't ever taken my girls. I need to put that on our Must Do list this year.

Thanks for sharing those great ideas and linking up with us.

I never think to mention Honor Heights. We go there pretty often. It's only 15 minutes from our house. It is really pretty when the azaleas are blooming!

I have got to take Isaiah to Pops! It sounds really fun. I'm thinking a road trip down Route 66 is in order for this summer!

Great suggestions!!
