Things to do
One of the most popular things to do in Oklahoma is to Visit the Holy City. The Holy City is 66 acre area made for reenactments of the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. There are many buildings and other structures that are very similar to the one's in biblical times. It is located in the Wichita Mountain's Wildlife Refugee. The back of the Holy City overlooks some beautiful mountains. When the Holy City first started there were only a few cast members and buildings, but by 1934, there were 150 cast members and many more structures. The place is open several months throughout the year, but the famous pageant occurs at Easter.
The Golden Driller
The Golden Driller is a 76 foot tall statue made of steel and concrete. The statue is actually the 3rd one made since 1953. The first one was a small statue made of brass and had a large grin. It was built by an Texas oilfield supply company . After the Golden Driller became so popular, they made anther one and then later, another one. The last one was built in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1966. Later a Texas supply company bought it and put Tulsa on the bet buckle. It had a very serious face and stronger, tougher build. It is also a mustard color instead of gold color. This is a very popular and amazing statue.
The Old Round Barn
The Old Round Barn is a great tourist attraction in Arcadia, Oklahoma. It was originally built in 1898 as a simple barn for cattle, but the bottom was the part that was used as a barn, where the top was used for dances and celebrations. Many people came to see this wonderful round barn. After a while though, the barn started to wear away and in 1988 the roof fell in. It was going to be an estimated $165,000 to restore the barn. A group of men called the Over-The-Hill gang restored it for only $65,000! It is now an amazing architectural phenomena and a great site to see in Oklahoma.
