The Midwest has a reputation for flatlands and fields — but Oklahoma's geography contains 10 distinct geographic regions that range from the Ozark Mountains to deep valleys, and from high plateaus to underground caverns.
The state's biggest cities include Oklahoma City, Tulsa, and Norman — but there are plenty of smaller towns and suburbs to choose from, too. Edmond, Jenks, and Bixby have earned recognition for being especially family-friendly.
Located north of Texas, Oklahoma has hot summers and relatively mild winters that are influenced by the nearby Gulf of Mexico. Though the state is landlocked, Oklahoma holds a nationwide record with approximately 200 man-made lakes.
