Established in 1871, Vinita is the second oldest town in Oklahoma and as such, has placed a high priority on preserving its history and heritage. A historic downtown district showcases antiques shops and specialty boutiques, the Eastern Trails Museum offers insight into Vinita's history, and historic Route 66 revs up another layer of charm. Eat at the iconic Clanton's Café, a Route 66 institution since 1927; take a cellar tour at Summerside Vineyards and Winery; or go retro with an evening in a classic Route 66 motel, the Route 66 Inn at Vinita.
Step back in time and enjoy a show at one of Oklahoma’s many historic theaters. Go see a film, concert or performing arts event, or simply take in the stunning architecture that makes these time-honored movie houses true Oklahoma landmarks.
From music festivals to rodeo competitions, community celebrations to Fourth of July spectacles, these beloved events from all over the state provide a glimpse into what Oklahoma summers are all about.
