The Best Sight In The World Is Actually A Road Sign That Says Welcome To Oklahoma
Have you ever taken a long road trip, and on your return trip home you had a warm and fuzzy feeling when you crossed state lines and saw the “Welcome to Oklahoma” sign? I recently had this experience after my flight was canceled and I had to rent a car and drive home. The moment I saw the sign, I had the best feeling in the world knowing that I was now back in my home state. If you haven’t traveled out of state in the last few years, you might be surprised to see that our welcome signs all got a new look in 2020.
Welcome to Oklahoma! Nicknamed "The Sooner State," the 10 main entry points into this beautiful state all boast big signs which span 20 feet x 10 feet with the state's new branding and colors. They were all installed in 2020.
The 10 main entry points are located along highways and interstates, but there are also 75 smaller signs in the border areas.
Before the new signs were installed in 2020, you might remember signs that looked like this with the slogan "Discover the Excellence." No matter what our signs look like, one thing is for sure...Oklahoma has a special place in our hearts.
When visitors cross over our borders, they seem to think they'll encounter a tornado. As we have seen our fair share, there's so much more to our beautiful state than wild weather.
We have one of the most diverse topographies in the country, and if you're lucky enough to travel the whole state, you'll get to see its vast beauty.
Oklahoma City and Tulsa are the two largest cities in the state, and are filled with world-class attractions, fabulous restaurants, premier shopping, and natural beauty that catches everyone's attention.
No matter which welcome sign you encounter, one thing is for sure - Oklahoma is a special state filled with friendly people, stunning scenery, and one-of-a-kind attractions. It's home.
