(OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla.) The changing of the seasons ushers in new opportunities for rest and recreation in Oklahoma when fall colors decorate the landscape. As the weather cools, Oklahoma becomes the go-to place to experience glorious fall foliage and family-friendly festivals.   Enjoy a scenic drive through one of the prime foliage areas with the windows down or hike through an outdoor recreational area, watching as the autumn leaves seem to change colors before your eyes. Meander across the tops of ancient mountains and marvel at the breathtaking vistas as you overlook miles of rolling hills set ablaze with spicy fall colors on the Talimena National Scenic Byway. Or explore the Arbuckle Lake and Chickasaw National Recreation Area to gaze upon nature's magnificent colors reflecting on the lake's surface and lining the rippling creeks. Plan your fall escape the first week of November to catch the peak foliage displays.   The Oklahoma land produces a bountiful autumn harvest. So pack up the family and head out for some fun on the farm at pumpkin patches and giant cornfield mazes. Or, schedule a weekend getaway around one of the many fall festivals and celebrations across Oklahoma.   14 Fall Foliage Routes   Boiling Springs State Park Chickasaw National Recreation Area Great Salt Plains State Park Lake Murray State Park Oologah Reservoir Osage Hills State Park Red Rock Adventure Park ‪Robbers Cave State Park‬ Roman Nose State Park Miami to Tahlequah Tahlequah to Sallisaw Talimena National Scenic Byway Kiamichi Trace Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge   November Festivals and Events   Fall Festival at the Orr Family Farm Now – ‪November 9, 2019‬ Orr Family Farm Oklahoma City, OK 73170   Pumpkin Festival at Shepherd's Cross Now - ‪November 9, 2019‬ Shepherd's Cross Claremore, OK 74017   Ardmore Fall Festival Now - ‪November 10, 2019‬ ‪Ardmore Convention Center‬ ‪Ardmore, OK 73401‬   ‪Beavers Bend Folk Festival & Craft Show‬ ‪November 8, 2019 - November 10, 2019‬ ‪Beavers Bend State Park‬ Broken Bow, OK 74728   Fortress of Faith Fall Festival ‪November 9, 2019‬ 198601 N ‪2700 Rd‬ ‪Hastings, OK 73548‬   Fall Foliage Hike ‪November 9, 16 and 23, 2019‬ Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge & Visitor's Center Lawton, OK 73505   Luther Pecan Festival ‪November 16, 2019‬ ‪Main St‬ ‪Luther, OK 73054‬   Turkey Day 5K ‪November 28, 2019‬ Norman High School Norman, OK 73069
