Muskogee is a city filled with surprises. Where else can you find celebrated Native American art, the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame and a medieval castle? Just like the song “Okie from Muskogee,” this charming city proves even squares can have a ball with a variety of attractions and three nearby lakes: Fort Gibson Lake, Lake Eufaula and Lake Tenkiller.
Plan your visit to Muskogee in the spring for a delightful stroll through Honor Heights Park where acres of blooming azaleas entice visitors each April for the annual Azalea Festival. The park also puts on a holiday light display that has to be seen to be believed. Be sure to check out the Castle of Muskogee for their annual Renaissance Festival, Boare’s Heade Feaste and Castle Christmas events. Experience Muskogee’s Native American history at the Five Civilized Tribes Museum, located in the former Indian agency building, and the Tiger Art Gallery featuring the works of Native American artist Dana Tiger and other Tiger family artists including the renowned Jerome Tiger. And hit the town for a little nightlife including craft brews at The Rail Taproom in the historic Katy District or the Muskogee Brewing Company located in the historic 1904 Fire Station 1 building.
