Places to visit in Oklahoma! Are you planning a road trip with kids? Check out recommendations on the best family friendly tourist attractions in Oklahoma, and share your family's favorites.

Some of the best places to visit in Oklahoma offer hands-on experiences that show the Oklahoma lifestyle. You can take the family for a working stay on a ranch or jump atop horses and head out across the land. There are many u-pick farms where you can get out and pick fresh produce to take back on the RV for the road. At the right time of the year, you can even head out through a corn maze and use your collective creativity to get to the end.

Oklahoma is also the land for extreme sports. If you have ever dreamed of rappelling down the side of a mountain or soaring the blue skies in a hot air balloon, you could make those dreams come true in Oklahoma.

Some would say the best places to visit in Oklahoma are the wineries. Wine is big business in this state and there are many places to take a tour or go for a relaxing wine tasting day trip.

The National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum

Our family's absolute favorite place in Oklahoma City was The National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum. It is a large complex with many historical artifacts and beautiful fine art for the for the family to enjoy. They also have a wonderful designated children's building with fun activities. There, the kids get to explore a "cowboy's way of life" by seeing how they lived and they get to dress up in cowboy and cowgirl gear.

My daughter was so happy they had pink cowgirl boots for her to wear. My son was a little embarrassed to put on the leather chaps but I assured him all real cowboys wear them. I have the best picture of them all decked out and plan on using it for our family Christmas card!

The outdoor area of the complex has beautiful grounds with water fountains and sculptures as well. It is a wonderful place for a picnic. However they do have a cafe on site, and the food looked pretty good.

That all being said, my sons favorite spot was the gift shop where he purchased a cork gun. They have many Indian artifacts and plenty of typical souvenir gift shop items. I definitely plan on returning there the next time we are in Oklahoma City and highly recommend it to anyone who is planning on their own visit. You can check out their web site at http://www.nationalcowboymuseum.org/.
