Scenic Drives

Lose yourself in the beauty of Oklahoma's scenic drives. Wind your way through the beautiful Ouachita Mountains in southeast Oklahoma, home of the famous Talimena National Scenic Byway. Twist and turn into picturesque settings of breathtaking foliage in the fall and delicate wildflowers in the spring. Slow down to enjoy the drive along scenic highways and byways that crisscross Oklahoma offering access to the state's natural beauty and charming small towns.

Turn back time with a nostalgic road trip on Route 66 - America's Main Street. Oklahoma boasts the nation's longest driveable stretch of Route 66 with over 400 miles of the Mother Road inside our borders. Visit quirky roadside attractions like the Blue Whale in Catoosa, sample authentic downhome cooking along the way and meet friendly people in Oklahoma's hometowns.

Twist your way up Mount Scott on the Wichita Mountains Scenic Byway for a panoramic vista over the ancient mountain range. Follow winding roads along the wooded riverbanks of the Illinois River or through the incredibly scenic Ouachita National Forest. Gaze out your windows and see majestic bison grazing in the Tallgrass Prairie or watch a Scissor-tailed Flycatcher dart across the sky before you. The scenic drives of Oklahoma showcase one incredible vista after another on our byways and back roads.
