Things to do in ARDMORE with kids

Oklahoma! Where the wind comes sweeping down the plain….and where kids fun is right around every corner!

It’s the state of swamps, prairies, forests and sand dunes…the state of western adventures, fascinating history and beautiful state parks.

There are attractions to surprise - like the Selman Bat Caves. There are activities to thrill - like the wild Frontier City. There are WILD experiences with Tiger Safari and GW Exotic Animal Park, and fascinating educational days out with Science Museum Oklahoma and Five Civilized Tribes Museum.  (Oklahoma has an incredible Native American history and present day culture)

Want some places to go with kids that capture that homestyle country Oklahoma culture? There are plenty to pick from, like the sweet Wild Things Farm, TG Farms, and the ever popular State Fair Park.

There are even attractions that will get you DRENCHED! In a state such as Oklahoma in the summer, places like Big Splash Water Park will never let you down!

Get those cowboy hats and cowgirl boots dusted off, and yee haw your way over to the state with the longest stretch of Route 66. Get those kicks!
