Big enough to offer the lodging and attractions you’re looking for but small enough to exude a friendly, hometown feel, Edmond is a fun-loving city always ready to wow visitors. You’ll find down-home attractions like a U-pick berry farm alongside refined options like spas, wineries and luxury golf clubs. Shop and dine in historic downtown Edmond where shaded sidewalks lined with lampposts lead you to top-notch salons, quaint eateries and modern coffeehouses. The town is home to a fine arts institute, a university jazz studies program and a community orchestra, making it a hub for visual and performing arts. The Armstrong Auditorium is one of Edmond’s most impressive attractions with performances by the Russian National Ballet and the Vienna Boys Choir. Almost 200 restaurants in Edmond boast flavors from traditional to unusual. Surprise your taste buds with Ethiopian fare, or savor homestyle flavors with a chicken fried steak dripping with gravy. Edmond is known for incredible festivals like the week-long patriotic LibertyFest celebration, which draws an annual attendance of more than 125,000 and plays host to the state’s largest hometown Independence Day parade each July 4th. Another top attraction in town is Arcadia Lake, where urban convenience meets outdoor adventure. Lake visitors enjoy picnicking, swimming, boating, hiking and fishing off the heated, covered dock.
