EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. Minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding, and rewarding, programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Consider the many cultures that call Oklahoma home as you trace the history and traditions of the Old West. Delve into Oklahoma City’s first major industry at the Stock Yards and explore the culture of the Old West at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum. Learn from a cowboy expert about trail drives, cowboy traditions and rodeos, and consider the legacy of Will Rogers at his memorial museum. Enjoy an array of other field trips and experiences, including an architectural exploration of Guthrie, Oklahoma’s first state capital.


• Visit the Stock Yards — still the world's largest stocker and feeder cattle market — for a glimpse of Oklahoma City's industrial past.
• Sample traditional Amish fare during a family-style dinner at an Amish home in Chouteau.
• At Spiro Mounds, discover what this important site teaches us about the Mississippian culture that spread along the lower Mississippi between the 800s and 1500s.
