Oklahoma has beautiful fall weather! The sweltering summer heat is finally replaced with crisp, cool mornings and chilly evenings. Needing some autumn inspiration? Here are our top five ways to spend an autumn day in Oklahoma:
1. Plant bulbs for next spring. Crocus and daffodils are known to handle Oklahoma’s strong spring winds.
2. Go for a hike. Our favorites are Beavers Bend State Park in Broken Bow and Red Rock Canyon State Park in Hinton.
3. Go to a horse show! Oklahoma City hosts more equine events than any other city in the world. Each fall, it hosts some of the largest national and championship shows in the nation including the Grand National Morgan Show, the AQHA World Show, and the NRHA Reining Futurity.
4. Gather around a bonfire. Share stories, smores, and songs on a chilly fall evening.
5. If the bonfire doesn’t warm you up then sip on a Prairie Fire cocktail! Pour two ounces of your favorite smoky mezcal into a chilled glass, garnish with an orange slice and spend a quiet evening on the back porch.
What are some of your favorite ways to spend the last few weeks of fall?
