The Sooner State welcomes its fall visitors. This time of year, Norman is abuzz with excitement as their beloved University of Oklahoma Sooners football team fights for national supremacy. Catch a game at Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium as they rumble through the Big 12 conference. In-state rival Oklahoma State University Cowboys are in Stillwater. Here, fans can visit Boone Pickens Stadium for the old-fashioned college game day experience. Look for a tailgate party, and create your own Oklahoma football experience.
Basketball fans are also in luck as a visit to Oklahoma City means you're in Thunder country. Follow the crowds to Chesapeake Energy Arena to see NBA's Thunder run-and-gun their way into the playoffs. Autumn also yields an abundance of fall festivals in Oklahoma, including the Oklahoma State Fair and Tulsa State Fair in September, and the Beavers Bend Folk Festival in November – just some of the family-fun you'll have in OK.
Another fun afternoon needs only a visit to the Stafford Air & Space Museum, found in Weatherford. Venture to southern Oklahoma for a visit to smaller towns like Broken Bow and its Gene Autry Museum. Visitors also enjoy a trip west through Great Plains country for some fall fun along the Chisholm Trail.
