OKC Day/Weekend Road Trips Bucket List 2019

ROAD TRIP ROAD TRIP ROAD TRIP. I am always looking for a place that I can jump in my car and drive to. Whether it’s an hour long drive or six, I love it and seeing new things. So I thought it best this to be the last topic in my OKC Bucket List Series. I am listing out some of the cool places you can road trip to or visit for the weekend that are super close to OKC!

**Three things before we get into it. Please skip if you read the last couple of blogs in the series!

First, I LOVE Oklahoma City and I’ve been here a lot of times. This series is a fresh list of places that I haven’t been to. I’ve either heard about them from people here, seen them on social media, or I’ve passed them since I’ve been here!

Secondly, with that in mind, there are sooo many places that won’t be on this list, so don’t feel like this is all there is here. Trust me, it’s not even a dent. OKC is soo big and I’m learning new things and about new places every day!

Thirdly, this list is NOT in a specific order of which is best or which I want to try first. It’s random.**
