The changing of the seasons ushers in new opportunities for rest and recreation in Oklahoma when fall colors decorate the landscape. As the weather cools, Oklahoma becomes the go-to place to experience glorious fall foliage and family-friendly festivals.

Enjoy a scenic drive through one of the prime foliage areas with the windows down or hike through an outdoor recreational area, watching as the autumn leaves seem to change colors before your eyes. Meander across the tops of ancient mountains and marvel at the breathtaking vistas as you overlook miles of rolling hills set ablaze with spicy fall colors on the Talimena National Scenic Byway. Or explore the Arbuckle Lake and Chickasaw National Recreation Area to gaze upon nature's magnificent colors reflecting on the lake's surface and lining the rippling creeks.
