Oklahoma has an impressive amount of diversity in regard to its landscape. Within its borders, travelers can see plains, forests, lakes and mountains while driving in their rental car. Along with this natural diversity, Oklahoma also has an array of attractions for tourists to take part in. Given Oklahoma's significance to the history of both cowboys and western expansion, as well as the relocation of American Indians, monuments to both can be found throughout the state such as the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum and the Cherokee Heritage Center.
Route 66 is considered to be the "Main Street of America" due to being one of the first interstate highways to exist in the country. Starting in Illinois and ending in California, the highway was built in 1926 and goes through some of the country's Midwestern states like Oklahoma. Given that constructing the road was such an accomplishment at its time, museums that explain this feat can be found along the route - one of which is in Oklahoma. Feel free to stop by if you happen to be driving down Route 66 on your way out west in your rental car.
Given that there aren't many professional sports teams in the state of Oklahoma, the locals fully appreciate the one that they have. The NBA's Oklahoma City Thunder have been considered to have one of the most loyal fan-bases in the entire league since the team came over from Seattle in 2008. One of the reasons for this is believed to be that sports fans in Oklahoma were forced to mainly be fans of college sports, which has a different level of intensity than professional sports. Once they got a professional sports team, they carried that energy over, which isn't all that difficult when you have a team with the talent that they've had in recent years. If you get a chance to, get your hands on some Thunder tickets to see what the energy in the arena is like.
