This gallery on the University of Oklahoma campus has become well known in art circles for its fine collections. The space is open and very minimalist; nice lighting and unobtrusive beige walls allow viewers to focus on the pieces and not on the environment. Four main collections are housed here: contemporary, the Oscar Jacobson American Indian Art Collection, the Oklahoma State Department collection, and the Santa Fe Indian School. There are also special exhibits held throughout the year to display traveling collections. Closed on Mondays.
Enjoy a day of old west adventure at this riding stable that offers open riding and guided trail rides on 30 professionally trained horses through 500 acres of historic land and hickory forest. Hay rides are also available. Reservations are required.
This is one of the easiest courses you will find in the area. The fairways are flat with very few trees to block your shot, and the course itself is pretty short. This is a great place for beginners (or those who have played for years but still at the nascent stage). There is also a driving range and two putting greens. The fees are pretty nominal and there is a discount for seniors and juniors.
Part of a state park, this centrally-located lake is surrounded by tall oak trees. It is about an hour's drive from the city, just east of Norman. In addition to activities like boating, swimming and water skiing, Thunderbird has facilities for camping and picnicking. The lake is stocked with fish, predominately bass and catfish. The grounds have areas for archery and for hunting all kinds of game, including deer, rabbit and squirrel and several kinds of waterfowl.
