Stillwater is home to Oklahoma State University, and is a town flourishing with super shopping and entertainment for you and your gal pals.

Afternoon - Rendezvous at Zannotti’s Wine Bar. This drinking destination pops the cork on palette-pleasing vino options. Add hors d’oeuvres to your experience and soak up the casual ambiance.
After refreshing yourselves, it's time for shopping at Bradford Plaza, Lakeview Pointe, Pioneer Square and downtown. With popular national stores as well as distinctive local boutiques, this is a shopping trip that guarantees gasp-worthy buys.
Evening - No trip to Stillwater is finished without a meal at the town’s “jumpin’ little juke joint” — Eskimo Joe’s. Try the original establishment or for a more worldly menu, or venture over to Mexico Joe’s, the company’s sister restaurant, for some Sonoran-style south-of-the-border eats. Eskimo Joe's often has live music, so stay and dance, or hit The Strip to enjoy another nightlife center in Stillwater.
Morning - Settle in for breakfast at Red Rock Bakery. Hot-from-the-oven pastries, such as cinnamon rolls, apple fritters and sausage rolls, are an ideal wake-up regimen. Choose from a variety of breads and pastries — the locals say “yum” to the fresh doughnuts. Then hit the streets for day two of retail therapy.
Afternoon - When you work up an appetite for lunch, dine at Old School Bagel Cafe for tasty made-to-order bagel sandwiches in an enticing atmosphere. Next, take your girls for a tour of the attractively-appointed Woodland Park Vineyard and spend some reflective time in the rose and herb gardens. Taste handcrafted estate wines, then browse through the gift shop and art gallery.
Evening - Finish off your stay in Stillwater with a group dinner at Freddie Paul's Steakhouse, a local hot spot that is family owned and operated, featuring steaks, seafood and more. You’ll delight in discussing the highlights of your getaway over a hefty meal and a delectable dessert.
