On the western edge of Pawnee, Oklahoma, atop Blue Hawk Peak sits the Pawnee Bill Ranch and Museum, the well-preserved dream home and ranch of Gordon Lillie (a.k.a. Pawnee Bill) and his wife, May Lillie. This picturesque historic site offers a wagon-load of family fun. Each June, the ranch puts on Pawnee Bill's Wild West Show, an extravaganza in the Wild West show tradition. Other events such as the Oklahoma Steam Tractor and Gas Engine Show and the Pawnee Indian Veteran's Powwow keep the town hopping. Downtown Pawnee is replete with century-old native stone buildings, unique shops and outstanding eateries such as Click's Steakhouse. Don't miss the well-appointed Pawnee County Historical Society Museum with its special area devoted to Pawnee native Chester Gould, creator of the Dick Tracy comic strip.
