Weatherford with the Gals
The pavement of Route 66 runs directly through Weatherford's downtown and like the historical Mother Road, this town is a classic.

A college town with a population of around 10,000, Weatherford offers ladies an Oklahoma getaway infused with small-town charm. In Weatherford, you’ll experience serious leisure time and lasting memories with the ladies you love.
Morning - Kickstart your day with a hearty homestyle breakfast at The Mark Restaurant. Then decide how to while away the morning - maybe a dip in the indoor pool if you're staying at the local Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites, or a visit to the Thomas Stafford Air & Space Museum if your bunch is adventurous.
Lunch - Indulge your appetite with some choice local grub. Fab meals are on the menu at the Downtown Diner and The Cup serves up yummy dishes with local art on display. For an offbeat option, eat lunch in jail. Special arrangements can be made for an arresting Weatherford police officer to escort your ladies to a mid-day meal in lock-up. It’s likely to be a lunch you’ll never forget — with pictures to prove you were there.

Afternoon - Set aside a hefty chunk of time for some serious shopping. Choose from one-of-a-kind antiques, home furnishings and current picks within It’s All About Moi at Miss Trudy’s and Uptown Marketplace. Lift your spirits at the bauble-filled Kelley Jewelers, western Oklahoma’s premier jewelry store and enjoy a special viewing of “chocolate pearls.” Afterwards, relax and let the clothing come to you with a private fashion show at The Kloset.
Evening - Dinnertime demands a visit to Lucille’s Roadhouse. The original Lucille’s, a historic Route 66 gas station, is now closed, but this homage to the successful 1920s landmark is open for business and serves up heaping American favorites. Filled with Route 66 memorabilia, Lucille’s is divided into a 1950s-style grill, a steakhouse and a lounge.
