Where To Stay

Updated May 21, 2003


October is indisputably the best month to experience all southeastern Oklahoma has to offer. The threat of spring storms is a distant memory, the heat and humidity of summer is mercifully over, and the cold winds of winter have yet to blow in snow and ice storms.


The halcyon days of October with its mild temperatures, crisp air, clean air and kaleidoscope of yellow, rust, burgundy and red foliage are the perfect time for day trips, weekend get-away or extended stays. When making plans to attend Hartshorne's Hard Times Festival allow yourself an extra day or two to revel in the beauty and tranquility of the season.
