The Unique, Out-Of-The-Way Beach In Oklahoma That’s Always Worth A Visit

Back in 1917, petroleum prospectors were drilling into the earth of an Oklahoma farm and the ground started to rumble. Out of the hole gushed….water. While the prospectors didn’t find petroleum riches, they uncovered a different kind of treasure. Mineral waters from the failed oil well attempt have created an artesian swimming area that’s the perfect place to beat the summer heat.
It’s called Gage Artesian Beach and it’s worth seeking out.

Here’s what you need to know about this unusual yet refreshing beach.
