There are plenty of places to getaway for a short weekend without having to spend time traveling on your precious days off. Here are a few to consider:
Sequoyah State Park
51 Miles From Tulsa
Sequoyah State Park offers beautiful views of the lake, stables, aand a Floyd Farley designed, 18-hole, par 70, 5,860 yard golf course. The campgrounds are wooded and there is plenty of wildlife to see. The park is not far from Tahlequah, so if you would like a little nightlife or good restaurants, you don't have far to go.
