The wide open landscapes of the Oklahoman countryside frame an ideal backdrop for breathtaking sunrises and sunsets. Discover the beauty of our state by visiting one of the thirty-five Oklahoma State Parks or by exploring outdoor activities such as biking, fishing, camping, and more. Lake Thunderbird, situated on the eastern edge of Norman, offers water sports, horseback and bike trails, as well as picnic areas. In addition to the great outdoors, Oklahomans take great pride in the history and culture of the people who call the Heartland their home. Tour the tastes of the region at Norman wineries and Oklahoman breweries. Take the Norman Art Walk or experience local cuisine and cultural events of the nearby capital Oklahoma City.
