Water may be in shorter supply in northwestern Oklahoma’s Red Carpet Country, but there are still plenty of amazing places to take a swim, cast your line or take out the boat in this geographically distinct area. Characterized by majestic mesas and wide swaths of shortgrass prairie, Red Carpet Country is home to some of the most unique lakes in Oklahoma. We covered Kaw Lake in Ponca City in our overview of the state's major lakes, so now read all about these high-plains oases and make plans to visit this one-of-a-kind region today.Learn More
Cimmy the Dinosaur
Cimmy the Dinosaur sits outside the Cimarron Heritage Center Museum in Boise City. This metal Apatosaurus, which measures 65 feet long, 35 feet high and weighs thousands of pounds, greets visitors to the museum. Stop to see Cimmy on your way through Boise City for a great photo-op.
Cimmy the Dinosaur was created as a real life representation of a dinosaur that was extracted from Cimarron County in the 1930s. Sometimes referred to as a "Cimarronasaurus," locals soon started calling their new roadside attraction "Cimmy." Stop by during the winter months to see Cimmy adorned with Christmas lights.
Museum closed from 12-1pm and on major holidays.
