Plan a visit to the fast-growing city of Bixby for a small-town feel near big city attractions. Take a stroll around the Washington Irving Memorial Park & Arboretum, go fishing at Lake Bixhoma or pick fresh berries at Gibson Gardens. In the fall, Carmichael’s Pumpkin Patch offers a pumpkin patch, corn maze and adorable petting zoo. Bixby offers a wealth of dining opportunities. Savastano’s Pizzeria is a popular pick for authentic Chicago-style pizza with a deep dish measuring two inches high, 14 inches in diameter and weighing eight pounds. Another local favorite is the Apple Barrel cafe and its thick-cut pork chops, smothered chicken fried steak and sweet strawberry crepes.
