Filled with attractions, cultural diversity and all of the amenities of large city inside the quaintness of a small town, Muskogee remains a place where tourists and visitors travel to and where others relocate to raise a family or enjoy their golden years of retirement. We are only moments away from the Tulsa International Airport with the enjoyable Tulsa scenery, as well as thriving suburban areas such as Broken Arrow, Wagoner, and Jenks, Oklahoma respectively. There is practically something to do for people of all ages including bowling, fishing and boating, golfing, two large screen movie theaters, and gaming. Residents enjoy a multitude of local attractions for everyone such as the Love-Hatbox Sports Complex which has eight softball fields, ten baseball fields, two football fields, the Centennial Trail for walking or biking, Picnic Pavilion, and an outdoor skate park; the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame & Museum, Muskogee Fairgrounds; Outlaw Motor Speedway that is one of the top ranked dirt tracks in the United States. It is a 3/8th mile semi-banked Oklahoma clay dirt race track used for Stockcar, Sprint, Late Models and Open Wheel Modified racing. Notable racing events during the season are, NASCAR in Oklahoma, and Fall Brawl; River Country Family Water Park, a family aquatic center, features the Frog Pond, a zero depth-entry leisure pool with over 100,000 gallons of crystal clear water, Crawdad Corner, a fully accessible interactive water playground designed with the little ones in mind, Willow Crick, a lazy river, two twistin n turnin body slides that plop into the Frog Pond, and Buzzards Bluff Climbing Wall. For information on our many other attractions and venues visit http://muskogeechamber.org/. Muskogee is also home to several colleges and universities including Northeastern State University (http://www.nsuok.edu/Muskogee.aspx), the historic Bacone College (http://www.bacone.edu/), and Connors State College (http://connorsstate.edu/).
Muskogee is rich in Okie Pride and we share that pride with the world through a song Okie from Muskogee. We are known for our beautiful azalea gardens that bloom in a glorious profusion of color each April, and sparkle with Christmas color each December with our Garden of Lights and Christmas Kingdom. Known as the Three Forks, this region was the hub for the settlement and development of what became Indian Territory. The Five Civilized Tribes ended their Trail of Tears in one of Americas most poignant dramas here at Fort Gibson, the first western military outpost. During the Civil War, Union troops including the First Kansas (African-American) Infantry occupied Fort Gibson and faced the cannons of the Cherokee Mounted Rifles at Confederate Fort Davis just across the Arkansas River. Oklahoma holds the distinction of having more historically black towns than any other state. Towns such as Rentiesville, Boley, and Langston set out the welcome mat for the Annual Black Towns Tour so visitors can learn about their unique place in history where African Americans of a century ago came to find a better life in the Promised Land.
