R E A L O K I E REAL OKIE Muskogee is a burly, boot- strapping town that believes living free is worth fighting for. Muskogee served as a crossroads to almost everything, bringing t ogether cowboys and Indians, outlaws and lawmen, slaves and freedmen, oil tycoons and roughnecks, even hippies and manly men. Muskogee is the capital of Okie Nation, a place where it's hip to be real—REAL OKIE. The Muskogee area offers amenities with endless possibility. Factor in an abundance of opportunities for outdoor recreation—think lakes, rivers, golf courses, and festivals. We'll even throw in a beautiful park of blooming azaleas (or twinkling lights), a rich musical history, native culture and art, and even a submarine! Then, just add a serving of barbeque and you've got a meeting & event destination that no one can resist and everyone will remember. Our variety of unique venues offer some- thing for every occasion—a historic movie theater, an old train depot, charming bed & breakfasts, down-home restaurants, a recently renovated civic center, and the best hotels.
