Blue Highways Adventure

Journey down a scenic highway to a local favorite.

Go with the flow when you take a wrong turn.

Roll the windows down and feel your cares float off in the breeze.

Take a look at a classic road map and identify the blue highways of Adventure Road, those side roads and back roads that lead to destinations unknown. Adventure isn’t one size fits all — consider this your golden chance to get off the beaten path.

The soul of a journey is liberty, perfect liberty, to think, feel, do just as one pleases.– William Hazlitt

Over the Horizon

In an area that’s a hundred miles long and a hundred miles wide, there’s no shortage of Oklahoma byways to explore. Opt for the left turn or the road with no name, and you’re sure to end up somewhere amazingly unexpected.

Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.– Miriam Beard
