|Stillwater, OK : College town charm|
Nestled amid the rolling, cedar-specked hills between Tulsa and Oklahoma City, Stillwater sits about an hour away from Oklahoma’s two largest cities. Calling it home is an eclectic population of about 46,000 from all walks of life.
Stillwater is a true college town with hotspots, places to study and hangouts for college students and adults, too. Eskimo Joe’s is a famous local favorite (try the cheese fries). And, the Strip, a collection of nightspots just south of campus, is always hopping.
Downtown Stillwater offers a glimpse of a historic past while offering unique shopping and delicious dining. Don’t forget downtown after dark — a great place to relax with a warm cappuccino or a crisp glass of wine while listening to the local musicians.
If outdoor activity is your thing, Boomer Lake north of campus features several miles of paths popular with local runners and walkers. Lake McMurtry to the northwest offers 30 miles of mountain bike trails. Lake Carl Blackwell, on the west side of Stillwater, and is known for horseback riding trails and has hosted state trail and endurance rides.
Stillwater also offers the Karsten Creek and the Lakeside golf courses. Other attractions include motocross and ATV parks. The Cooperland Raceway offers exciting, edge-of-your-seat action at a top rated motocross facility.
