Best Scenic Drives in Oklahoma

July 06, 2021

What are some of the most beautiful country roads in Oklahoma?  

People often underestimate the amazingness of Oklahoma – especially folks who’ve never visited before. If only they knew just how enchanting this state is! Any road that takes you through the Ouachita Mountains is guaranteed to be a stunner, and you read that right: there are mountains in Oklahoma! The Wichita Mountains Scenic Byway is another breathtaking drive through underappreciate wilderness, and we also really love following alongside the Illinois River on any country road we can find.  

What are the best, most beautiful drives in Oklahoma?  

Oklahoma is smack-dab in the middle of the United States, and that means lots of tourists coming in and out all day, every day. One of the best drives in Oklahoma is popular among tourists, as it’s all a stretch of the famous old Route 66. We’re also big fans of the Talimena National Scenic Byway, which is so beautiful that, well, it got a name! A drive through the amazing Tallgrass Prairie is also always a great time.  

Are there any scenic road trips in Oklahoma that I can take?  

In a word: plenty! Being in such a beautiful state is awesome for those of us who like to soak it all in. We recommend something like this amazing Oklahoma waterfall road trip, during which you’ll see up to five incredible cascades. You also can’t beat an incredible Oklahoma natural wonders road trip. There are plenty more options than just “nature” trips, of course, like our haunted places road trip, or one of our ghost town road trips only for the brave.
