    Fun-filled vacations in Norman

    With lots of museums, athletic events and parklands to explore, Norman draws travelers to central Oklahoma for fun-filled vacations in a college town. There are tons of places to shop and dine around here, but the big-city amenities of Oklahoma's state capital are just a quick drive away, too, so you'll never run out of things to do. After you've picked out the perfect Norman vacation rental, perhaps close to the University of Oklahoma campus if you've come for a special event, it's off for family-friendly activities at bowling alleys and amusement centers or evenings out at the wine bars and coffee shops along walkable Main Street.

    Sporting action in Norman

    With a couple of major universities and a professional basketball team in the area, there are plenty of opportunities for sports fans to catch thrilling athletic competitions. Whether it's tailgating before a football game, grilling hamburgers and munching on nachos in the cool fall air or cheering on your favorite team from the stands, you'll find lots of ways to enjoy the action. Just be sure to book your Norman vacation rental early if you plan to visit on home game weekends, when the town fills up.

    Touring the museums in Norman

    Thanks to the university in Norman, there are plenty of cultural attractions to explore, including an array of museums around the historic campus. Pop into the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History to learn about the state's heritage through a series of fascinating exhibits. The kid-friendly interactive space here will entertain young guests, with playful hands-on activities. The collections at the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art contain 1000s of pieces from Asia, Europe and the Americas. The National Weather Center is also located here and you can tour the facilities with a guide if you book ahead.

    Fall fun in Norman

    There's no better time to visit Norman than fall, when the cool air brings colorful leaves to the trees, and football season means tons of events and cheer in the air. You typically won't need a coat until winter, as fall temperatures tend to average in the 60s and 70s during the day, but chilly nights might call for boots and scarves as you head out on the town, or cups of hot cider in the kitchen of your Norman vacation rental. If you plan to visit in fall, be sure to book your rental early on the weekends of home games, as the town will fill up with football fans.

    Get back to nature in Norman

    Just outside the city, it's easy to get back to nature at some of the local lakes that dot the area. In Norman, you can head to Lake Thunderbird State Park, which sits on the shores of a body of water with the same name. Here, you'll find a couple of marinas with ramps to get your boats in the water, as well as swimming beaches that are perfect for dips in the waves during the heat of summer. If you take to the hiking and biking trails in the park, keep your eyes peeled for some of the wildlife that lives here.
