As Oklahoma's 6th largest city, Edmond is a great place to visit. Conveniently located along Route 77 and Interstate 35, the city is easily accessible for driving travelers. The attitude of the residents in the city is spectacular. Although it doesn't really constitute being the "South", they certainly reflect southern charm and hospitality.
Golfers will absolutely love visiting Edmond. The area is gorgeous in the aspect of scenery and boasts at least 5 great golf courses. There is also Arcadia Lake nearby which is a great place for summer fun. Camping, hunting, hiking, fishing and water sports are all options afforded visitors to the Lake or the surrounding park. Unfortunately there are not many other attractions in Edmond with an indoor theme.
Plenty of overnight accommodations are found in the city of Edmond. I stayed at the Stafford Inn and found it to be affordable and comfortable. For a quiet and relaxing dinner, travelers will enjoy Boulevard Steakhouse. The food, staff and ambient atmosphere make an excellent combination. Another excellent dining venue is Cafe 501, featuring an atmosphere of retro simplicity mixed with modern elegance. Menu selections are extensive enough to meet the preferences of any palate.
