The Ultimate Guide to Sulphur, Oklahoma
Where to stay
We spent two nights at the Artesian Hotel, but I wish we could have stayed longer. I mean look at that hotel room! Carson absolutely loved the two window seats and of course the indoor/outdoor pool.
The Artesian also has a casino, bathhouse, spa, bar and amazing restaurant.
What to eat
There are so many great restaurants in Sulphur. We started off Friday night at Fat Bully’s Sunset Ridge. Located on the outskirts of town, the restaurant has a large patio (for when it’s not 100) and delicious burgers. I highly recommend the queso for appetizers.
Chickasaw Cultural Center – Try the speciality of the day which is an authentic Indian dish. So good!
Springs at the Artesian – We had breakfast delivered to the room and it was the best omelet I’ve ever had.
We also had dinner on Saturday night. Glad we made reservations, because it is s popular spot in town. I had the salmon which was cooked to perfection and little man dug into the buffalo burger.
Sweet Swirlz – Of course it’s not a vacation unless you stop in for ice cream! Sweet Swirlz is the place to go. They have rows of candy, a yogurt bar and dip & dots.
What to do
Take a hike – Visit the Chickasaw National Recreation Area for a day of hiking more than 30 miles of trails. Viewing the bison or splashing in the creek at Little Niagara Falls.
Chickasaw Cultural Center – Learn all about Native American history through dancing demonstration, museum exhibits and walking around a traditional village. The village was our favorite part and was fascinating to see what a historic village would look like.
Play golf – Play a round of 9-hole golf at Sulphur Hills Golf Course. The course is beautiful and the perfect way to spend the morning.
Trail ride – We took a 2 hour trail ride with Arbuckle Trail Rides through the Chickasaw National Recreation Area and the views were breathtaking. Riding is one of our favorite activities to do together and so glad we were able to ride in Sulphur.
Chickasaw Country made for a wonderful getaway. All the culture, outdoor adventures and luxurious accommodations makes it the best Oklahoma weekend destination!
Thank you to Chickasaw Country for hosting us on this trip! All opinions are my own.
