Oklahoma City is the heart of Frontier Country. Largest of the cities in the state, Oklahoma City is a symbol of the mind-set of the whole state. It is laid out with streets that are wide enough, freeways that work, parks that are beautiful, buildings that are clean, business that is prosperous and scenery that is majestic and ever-changing.
Here are interactive maps and a whole lot more information on the Counties of Frontier Country. The cities will be divided up according to counties too.
When the freeways get packed with tourists during rush hour, natives know the side streets are laid off on the square and may get them home even faster. You'll find oil wells, ranches, farms and golf courses in the most unlikely places. Many of the best museums have free admission. Fact of the matter is, Frontier people like that word FREE so much they use it frequently in relation to many of their best events.
Festivals are the biggest cultural event in this region. You've got the Red Earth Native American Cultural Festival, then Medieval Fairs, Hispanic festivals, Greek, Asian, and the Czechs over in Prague and Yukon serve up delicacies like kielbasa sausage and kolaches.
In other parts of the country mountains get smaller with age and gullies get deeper. Not in Frontier Country. All our gullies are routed to fill up a lake somewhere. Lake Thunderbird is about the best one to visit because the dam there is taller than the highest mountain in this region.
Hiway 9 had to be moved over to make room for the lake but everyone agrees it was a nice trade. Sailboats are the favorite means of gliding on the lake. Ski-Doos are out in force though, and the only thing I haven't seen yet is a houseboat.

Arcadia is located 15 miles North of Oklahoma City on Historic Route 66. It is 6 miles East of Interstate 35 (Exit #141). Due to its proximity to major urban areas, Arcadia offers a life style that is close to shopping, entertainment, employment and social activities yet far enough away to perpetuate the rural, small community lifestyle that is so desirable. Home of the 66 foot tall soda pop bottle.
