Travel Planning Links
Here are some of the sites that have helped me plan trips and find routes over the years, and helped me put this collection together.
Trails.com – Includes trails and scenic drives. A lot of the information is hidden behind a paywall. However, most of that information (at least in Oklahoma and Arkasas) is available in Don Kurz’s book Scenic Driving the Ozarks. It’s out of print, but easy to find.
TravelOK.com – Official travel site of the Oklahoma Department of Tourism.
America’s Byways – Official US Department of Transportation site for scenic drives and byways.
OnlyInYourState.com – Has all manner of articles on scenic drives, road trips, trivia, and roadside attractions.
ChickasawCountry.com – Covers tourism in the south-central part of Oklahoma.
ChoctawCountry.com – Covers tourism in the southeast corner of Oklahoma.
RedCarpetCountry.com – Tourism for northwest Oklahoma and panhandle.
GreenCountryOK.com – Tourism site for northeast Oklahoma, including Tulsa.
OKTourism.com – Tourism site for central Oklahoma, including Oklahoma City.
GreatPlainsCountry.com – Tourism for southwest Oklahoma.
YourMechanic.com – Touring is not really the point of this site, but they do have some good articles on scenic drives.
AtlasObscura.com – Articles about odd and unusual attractions.
RoadsideAmerica.com – Articles about odd and unusual roadside attractions.
