Stroud is situated virtually midway between Tulsa and Oklahoma City and at the juncture of historic Route 66 and State Highway 99. No self-respecting Route 66 road warrior will want to miss dining at the iconic Rock Café, built in 1939 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. At the elegant Tatanka Ranch, complete with a lodge, guest house, cabins, rock-scaped pool and spa, fishing ponds and horse trails, take the notion of relaxing higher on 1,000 acres of pristine countryside. Wine aficionados can sip the day away amid vineyards and wineries such as Sparks Vineyard & Winery and Stableridge Vineyards & Winery.
