101 Main St
Waynoka, OK

A prime example of Oklahoma's diverse terrain, Little Sahara State Park boasts over 1,600 acres of sand dunes, ranging in height from 25 to 75 feet. The vast dunes have formed over time from terrace deposits, remnants of prehistoric times when the Cimarron River flowed over the entire area. The main attraction at Little Sahara State Park is dune buggy and ATV riding across the sand dunes. Visitors can either bring their own ATV or rent one off-site by a private vendor. Either way, visitors will have a blast in this mini-desert atmosphere, known as one of the best riding spots for ATVs in the Midwest.


Greenwood Historical District

Greenwood Ave
Tulsa, OK

The Greenwood District was once one of the most affluent African American communities in the United States with a population of over 10,000 people. The area thrived, and the main thoroughfare through the area on Greenwood Avenue was known as “Black Wall Street” by the 1920s. Black doctors, lawyers and businessmen had their offices along this street. In 1921, the Tulsa Race Riot became one of the worst acts of violence spurned by racism in American history. During the mid-1920s, the area was rebuilt and soon thrived again. You can learn about the vast and interesting history of the Greenwood District at the Greenwood Cultural Center and the Mabel B. Little Heritage House. The Guess Building survived the Race Riot and is now on the National Register of Historic Places, and the John Hope Franklin Reconciliation Park is a beautiful and moving memorialization of those who were affected by the 1921 riot.
