Last month, I-35 was either flooded or had a rock slide or both, north of Ardmore, thanks to all the rains. My wife and her friends are headed up to Oklahoma City by car from the Dallas area, and I have been charged with trying to figure out if they should go up the most direct route which is I-35 (passing through Ardmore), or use the longer eastern route of up US-75 through Durant, then taking US and state highways up to Shawnee to take I-40 into Oklahoma City from the east...
Anyone have recent info? I have looked at mapping software, which just says "construction" (there's always construction on the interstates), and the notices at the Oklahoma DOT are a month old...
What is the best and cheapest way to Travel from Will Rogers World Aiport to Alva? Car is not an option for me.
We (retired) live in Wales UK and are planning a holiday in June. (We have travelled fairly extensively in the States and prefer the friendliness of small town America to the bigger 'touristy' cities on the east and west coast). So far nothing is cast in stone except our flight to Fort Worth where we plan to catch the Amtrak up to Oklahoma City to pick up our hire car. We would obviously like to drive along Route 66 towards Tulsa but so far it's all an open book. Having grown up in the era of cowboy films, Dodge City is a must! Can anyone suggest some atmospheric places to visit geared towards the cowboy culture, old cattle trails etc. or if there are any events coming up roughly between 11th - 20th June with live country music, etc.
In Oklahoma there is a place with a stone statue in the middle of a fountain that I am interest in visiting. The statue is of what appears to be a nude woman and what appears to be another nude femail. The older of the women is holding a fish above her head and the water comes out of the fishes mouth.

Hi! I'm traveling to Texas later this summer, and am looking for a new route to try (just for something different.) I'm thinking of cutting through Oklahoma via route 69 (from I-40 down to the border.) Looks like it's about 130 miles - but anyone know the general speed limits? Looks like you pass through a few towns, so I'm sure it slows a little here and there. How fast can you do it in without a stop? 3 hours? Normally, I cross over to I-35 and head south, am I adding a ton of headache and nothing to look at with this change? Little kids on the trip, so I do have to be aware of time.
Thanks in advance!
Hello, I am a big Lucky Magazine fan. It has opened me up to a whole new world of boutiqing. I am 30 years old and of a somewhat modern type of person. Are there any hip boutiques in Bricktown, Oklahoma City? Thanks!
Hello All: It is possible I will be moving to the Muskogee area shortly to work at the VA hospital. Is Muskogee a good, fair, bad place to live? Crime? People? A good place to live close by? Thanks for any input. I appreciate it.
Hello. Wondering if there is an active VT community in Oklahoma?
Not one word about Broken Bow or Beavers Bend. Thats were we're headed. We live in Louisiana and would love some info on where to go to see caves or other spots of interest. Where to eat out and so on. Someone please respond.
Hello everyone, me and my husband will probably be moving to Lawton soon. We'd like to find out as much as we can about the social life/ city life/ activities/schools etc that can help us. Also is there an Aveda Salon in Lawton??

Until last week, the choices that I was given for a transfer were Memphis, TN and Springfield, MO. I had almost made my decision on the two and now have learned that Tulsa and Oklahoma City are among my choices as well. I have been to both cities, but only for brief business trips. Could anyone tell me how it is to live in these places, and recommend areas to live - and to stay away from? I know it gets pretty hot in OC compared to the low 90s that we are used to, but we are also used to high humidity so with the drier climate, the heat may not feel so bad.
We are mainly into the arts (opera, symphony, etc.), want a great high school for my son, want a city that is friendly and accepting, and a city that has at least a relatively low crime rate.
My boyfriend is graduating from boot camp at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. I need somewhere that is resortlike, even a cottage or cabin close by. I have read about Quartz Mountain Resort which sounds nice and Medicine Park. Anyone have advice for us? Also, we plan to travel with mom so we are looking for something with 2 bedrooms. We would like to stay within a budget but it looks like everything is expensive. Thanks for the help. Mahalo.
