NORTHWEST: RED CARPET COUNTRY

Leonardo's Discovery Warehouse is definitely worth this day trip! The castle was amazing! Kids of all ages will absolutely love this! While we toured the town, we found the most wonderful Mexican restaurant, Cafe Garcia! They had an amazing fresh salsa bar! You may not know this, but Enid is the home town of our Lieutenant Governor, Todd Lamb!  

The town of Beaver, Oklahoma got its start in 1879 as a fur-trading post. These days, Beaver is best known for Beaver Dunes State Park. The sand dunes were an absolute blast to see! The locals are more than willing to put on a show for you! If you have a four-wheeler, this is definitely a great place to visit. 

The Alabaster Caverns are in Freedom Oklahoma: a charming town that takes you back to the wild west! The only thing missing was a dirt street and a couple of gunfighters! The caverns were spectacular with guided tours every hour. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and sweet.

Wow! Black Mesa has lots of hiking and great trails! It's also a really great place if you're a bird watcher. If you're the adventurous type, you can actually climb the mesa. It takes about 3 hours to make the ascent and it's quite a workout! 

When in Rome, do as the Romans do! Everyone goes to the local Guymon High School football game on Friday night. While you're in town, check out Hunny's on Main Street for dinner. They're only open Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings, but the ribs are seriously worth it!

Boise City is a charming town with a great little cafe called the Rockin' A Cafe. Everyone in Boise City was so friendly and welcoming. Don't forget to check out the dinosaur bones at the Heritage Museum. This was a great stop-over on our way to Black Mesa State Park.

Boiling Springs State Park was so peaceful and laid back. I loved it! This is a perfect place for families with children of all ages. There are campgrounds, hiking trails, a golf course, a lake for swimming, playgrounds, and outdoor grills. If you like to be surrounded by nature, you'll love this!
