Summer Break

Lake Murray Water Sports & Mini Golf

Summer Break Adventure

Do a cannonball into a sun-soaked natural pool beneath a pouring waterfall.

Go ziplining in the mountains, the countryside or over a downtown river.

Enjoy a round of mini golf and a sno-cone after a fun-filled day on the lake.

Two of the most promising words in the English language are “summer” and “break.” But when put together, they rival practically any other combination of syllables.

Then followed that beautiful season … summer … filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light.– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Free as a Bird

Oklahoma summers blaze with a fury of adventure that can’t be denied. The waters flow, the red dirt bakes in the sun and the air is filled with the thrill of taking the season day by day.

To lie sometimes on the grass under the trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.– John Lubbuck

Lazy Days of Summer

Feel your cares float away with the current under Turner Falls.

Order the biggest milkshake on the menu at Bedré Café.

Enjoy more thrills than you can imagine with RIVERSPORT Rapids and Adventures on the Oklahoma River.

Escape into an urban oasis with Myriad Botanical Gardens.

Cheer on Energy FC at a home game inside Taft Stadium.

Let the Good Times Roll

Revel in the spirit of the season. It’s going to be an unforgettable summer on Adventure Road.
