Oklahoma is a land of diversity from its Native history and breathtaking scenery to its Americana charm, BBQ foods, cowboy culture, and fun and friendly people.
Oklahoma is home to the largest stretch of Route 66 with 643 km that take in the cultural hubs of Oklahoma City and Tulsa, a sea of neon signs, drive-in movie theatres, delicious diners, and quirky roadside attractions. A drive down Route 66 is just one of the ways you can embrace the State’s rich musical heritage in Tulsa alone find The Bob Dylan Center, The Woody Guthrie Center, The Church Studio, and Cain’s Ballroom.
There are 39 Native American tribal headquarters in Oklahoma, more than any other in the U.S. This strong heritage and culture are very much a part of Oklahoma’s identity today.
Oklahoma also has one of the most diverse terrains in the USA with 12 different eco-regions. Oklahoma is home to 30+ state parks, including 5 with newly renovated lodges, a perfect outdoor adventure accompaniment to any self-drive road trip.
Travel Oklahoma engaged Canuckiwi effective January 1st, 2023 as their in market representation firm for Australia and New Zealand.
Oklahoma Tourism & Recreation is excited to further ignite new travel trade, travel media, and in-country travel industry partnerships throughout Australia and New Zealand and are keen in having Canuckiwi lead us in this direction. Oklahoma’s proximity (one hour drive) to Dallas Fort Worth Airport (DFW) coupled with the current direct flights between DFW and Sydney, Melbourne, and Auckland easily allow authentic USA ‘off-the-beaten-path’ multi-state road trip holidays for adventurous Aussies and Kiwis. We look forward to spreading the word via Canuckiwi.
