Welcome to the Redbud City of Oklahoma. Shawnee is a town small in size, but big on personality. Here, southwestern flair, spectacular sunsets, wide-open spaces, and deep Native American roots combine with a friendly reputation that creates an authentically Oklahoman experience.
Shawnee is home to the only ancient Egyptian mummies in Oklahoma, the International Finals Youth Rodeo, four Native American tribes, and over a dozen bald eagles. Centrally located just 40 miles east of Oklahoma City, it's a great destination for a weekend trip or your next meeting or event.
Once you're in town, stop by the Visit Shawnee Visitor Information Center for visitor maps, brochures, souveniers or recommendations. The friendly staff is the best source for information on Shawnee and can point you in the right direction for the best shopping and dining experiences in town. The small gift shop features Shawnee and Oklahoma T-shirts, locally-made goods, and other souvenir items.
