Time at the Chickasaw Cultural Center near OKC

We spent a few days in Oklahoma City with good friends Kirk and Susan.  Kirk and I got to play some golf together and we had dinner at their place and enjoyed some hang time together.  They have a new grandbaby and we got to see her as well.  And see Mandy and meet Ty.  It was a great time.

On Sunday, we took a short drive out to the Chickasaw Visitor Center, Chickasaw National Recreation Area and the Chickasaw Cultural Center.
All three sites were fairly close to each other.  We started at the Visitor Center and got the impression of a very well done and informative center.
That was followed up with some time seeing and orientation video and displays over at the National Recreation Center main building.
 Next it was time for a short hike out on the grounds to take in some of the great scenery.
 We saw this fellow perched up on a branch.  He was observing the proceedings as we observed him.
 His head is on a swivel.  Fascinating.

This bridge was right near the start/end of the hike at the information center.
Along the way we got a couple of couples' photos.

Next, we went over to the Cultural Center and had a buffalo burger for lunch, then wandered through the museum and grounds.

It was a very impressive time at the Cultural Center and one of the most well done displays and we have seen in a long time.  It was a wonderful day with good friends.

Thanks for joining us on the Roadrunner Chronicles.


  1. Great tour! I lived in OKC for four years and visited Chickasaw back in the 70's but do not remember the center.
