“We are so excited about this new Oklahoma Travel Guide,” said Oklahoma Lt. Gov. Matt Pinnell, who is also the state’s Secretary of Tourism & Branding. “It showcases all of the things that make our state such a special place to live and visit. Readers will learn about our awesome stretch of Route 66, our unique American Indian and Western heritage and our incredible outdoors experiences. If you want to see America, you’ve got to see Oklahoma, and this guide gives travelers a road map for how to do that.”
