Oklahoma Tourism & Visitor Guide
Welcome to Oklahoma!
Oklahoma has a deep-rooted Native American history. In fact, the name Oklahoma was derived from two Choctaw Indian words: okla meaning people and humma meaning red. Once the land of Cowboys and Indians, the state has kept detailed documentation of its cultural history in museums, such as the Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa and the National Cowboy Hall of Fame and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City. With state parks, mountains, plains and forests, Oklahoma's landscape is almost as varied as its culture. Rising sharply from the grassy plains in West Oklahoma are ancient mountains that extend southwest, providing a haven for outdoor recreational enthusiasts, especially in Fort Cobb Lake State Park. Also of interest is the Museum of the Great Plains in Lawton, which features exhibits about the cattle industry and the fur trade. In East Oklahoma, Claremore boasts the Will Rogers Memorial Museum and Birthplace, as well as the Woolaroc Ranch, Museum and Wildlife Preserve in Bartlesville.
