98 Luxury Apartments Owasso Presents Our Guide to Fall in OK

98 Apartments has some of the most beautiful apartments for rent in Owasso, and our community only gets better looking in the fall. From eastern Oklahoma and spreading through western Arkansas, the leaves they are a-changin’. The spectrum of red, green, and orange colors are beautiful this time of year, and we’re hitting autumn’s sweet spot when colorful leaves cover both the ground below and the trees above. Long walks turn into contests to see who can crunch the most leaves, and even the most boring car rides can become scenic drives during the fall in Oklahoma.

The most vibrant colors emerge after warm sunny days turn into cool nights. Sound like anyplace you know? Yes, Oklahoma has the perfect climate for leaf-changing enthusiasts. You’ll probably see more than a couple out-of-towners with their cameras out in the coming weeks. It's okay, they’re just here to enjoy the beauty of our great state, and we think you should join them! The team at 98 Apartments in Owasso is here to tell you about some of our favorite ways to get the most out of this stunning season.

The Talimena National Scenic Byway

The Talimena National Scenic Byway is an hour and 10 minute drive through the Ouchita National Forest that winds along the ridge of Rich Mountain and Winding Stair Mountain. Of course, stopping to take a few pictures will lengthen that drive considerably, but you’ll hardly notice the time when the brightest colors of fall fly by you on both sides of the road.

Unlike America’s famous mountain ranges like the Sierra Nevada, Rocky Mountains and Appalachian Mountains, the Ouchita Mountains run east to west instead of north to south. This orientation means the mountains are home to a unique mix of foliage that would not otherwise appear on north to south oriented mountains. Fall leaves on unique trees? Sign us up.

Talihina Fall Foliage Festival

This little town of about 1,000 people has been inviting the rest of Oklahoma to celebrate the fall colors every October for more than 25 years. Held on the grounds of the local school, the two day Fall Foliage Festival features food booths, crafts and live entertainment. Don’t miss Saturday’s Wild West shootout re-enactment, where performers relive some of the showdowns between outlaws and sheriffs that almost certainly took place all over Oklahoma in the 1800s. Changing leaves are pretty, but wild west shootouts are the far more exciting fall event.

Beavers Bend Folk Festival & Craft Show

Forest Heritage Center Museum at Beavers Bend State Park north of Broken Bow hosts a festival and craft show every year to commemorate the changing of the seasons. The 23rd annual Beavers Bend Folk Festival takes place November 11th, 12th and 13th this year, drawing nearly 17,000 attendees over three days. If you decide to check this festival out, get ready to chow down. More than 70 vendors will be on site selling a wide variety of fall treats including pork-o-bobs, Indian tacos, smoked turkey legs and more. If your sweet tooth has been acting up lately, you can dig into the caramel apples and funnel cakes before indulging in the fresh apple cider made on the festival grounds.

Turkey Mountain trails in Tulsa

There’s always a fun and healthy event happening at Turkey Mountain. For the fitness freaks out there, this urban wilderness area is a blessing in the autumn months. Where else can you combine yoga classes, mountain biking and fall colors? Check out their website for a full list of upcoming events.
