Visiting This One Place In Oklahoma Is Like Experiencing A Dream

Most people don’t think there are dreamy places to visit in Oklahoma. They still live under the myth that the state is flat and boring…blanketed with only prairie lands and wheat fields. However, the great state of Oklahoma actually has one of the most diverse topographies of any state in the country.

One dreamy place every Oklahoman should visit is the Talimena Scenic Drive in the Ouachita National Forest in southeastern Oklahoma. The 54-mile drive will take you through the most breathtaking vistas in the state, introduce you to quaint, historic gateway towns and take you exploring on an endless number of trails (if you choose). If you wish to just take a leisurely drive, it will take you about an hour; if you want to spend days in the area, there’s plenty to do. But either way, one thing’s for sure: you’ll have to pinch yourself along the way because it’ll feel like you’ve stepped into a dream. Still doubtful? Take a look…

Have you ever visited this dreamy place? If so, what was your favorite part about it? Please share your thoughts in the comments.
