During our trip to Oklahoma we found the state has much to offer for families with children of all ages and interests. Whether  you’re planning to visit for a week or just a weekend, there’s a diverse range of attractions and activities, as well as things to see and do that are ideal for families. Below is a summary of our experiences with some ideas to help you  plan your ideal fun-filled holiday to some of Oklahoma’s best destinations.  

Oklahoma is home to several museums and attractions aimed at challenging children’s minds while treating them to a fun, exciting adventure, and there are many options  for not only an enjoyable outing, but also a chance to get the kids to think about and explore the world around them. The main cities of Oklahoma and Tulsa are loaded with so many family-friendly activities, you'll find everything from roller coasters  and water slides to dinosaurs and baseball, and a whole lot more. If you are looking for outdoor adventure try the vast, recreational Grand Lake o' the Cherokees, the scenic Illinois River or the pristine, blue waters of Broken Bow Lake, you will find  activities of every kind centering around this natural resource. The state has an abundance of beautiful scenery, mountains, waterfalls and forests, fun recreation and everything from buffalo and elk to monkeys and tigers, while the diverse northwest  landscapes include sand dunes, salt plains, canyons and ranches.

Oklahoma City
Jasmine Moran Children's Museum
Leonardo's Discovery Warehouse & Adventure Quest

A hot spot for children is located in the northwestern Oklahoma community of Enid. Leonardo’s Discovery Warehouse ( http://www.leonardos.org ) is a hands-on arts and sciences museum that is fun for all ages. Children can build in the  carpentry shop, create a masterpiece in the art studio, observe snakes, chinchillas and ferrets in the animal area and much more inside the converted warehouse. A great facility here where children can also play as they learn is the outdoor Adventure  Quest science park, which is the largest playground of its kind in the world.

Oklahoma is also home to one of the world’s largest children’s museums. The Jasmine Moran Children’s Museum ( http://jasminemoran.com ) in Seminole has formed one of the world’s largest children’s exhibits where thousands of children come each year to experience the grown-up  world from a kid’s perspective. The museum is uniquely created as an imaginary town where children can actually be the doctor, the judge, the firefighter, the waterworks engineer and so much more.
