A smart suburban spot on Oklahoma City's northern border, Edmond sits proudly along scenic Route 66, America's so-called "Mother Road". Exuding a hometown feel, the city is perhaps best known for its splendid collection of public art, but the appeal doesn't end there. Edmond vacation rentals are the perfect choice for travelers interested in culture and the performing arts, not to mention a popular option for foodies and outdoor enthusiasts. Whether hanging out in the city's historic downtown or making a splash at Arcadia Lake, visitors find that fond memories are easy to make.

Things to do

Endless entertainment in Edmond

With an abundance of attractions on the doorstep of your Edmond vacation rental, you'll find entertainment comes easy during your stay. Free entry to the Barnett Field Splash Pad right through summer ensures family fun is readily available, while those looking for a more refined pastime can check out the Edmond Historical Society Museum, housed in a sandstone building once occupied by the Oklahoma National Guard, or watch an elegant ballet performance at the Armstrong Auditorium. In nearby Oklahoma City, Stockyards City and the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum serve up an authentic slice of the American West.

Activities

Explore historic downtown Edmond

Rarely are streetscapes more attractive than the one found in historic downtown Edmond. Once a simple stop on the Santa Fe Railroad, this revitalized patch now boasts an array of unique boutiques, eclectic antique stores and sophisticated dining spots. Sculpted artworks in bronze, steel and glass dot the landscape all year round, while Halloween and Christmas, as well as annual celebrations such as LibertyFest and the Downtown Edmond Arts Festival add a little something special into the mix. Colorful decorations, twinkling lights and a seemingly-endless supply of fun, all can be found in Edmond.

Weather

Fanciful fall in Edmond

Although there are no distinct high or low seasons in Oklahoma, travelers do tend to extol the virtues of a stay during the fall months of October and November, thus avoiding the hot and humid summers and chilly winters. Rich autumnal colors and lively festivals add to the appeal, so it's worth booking your Edmond vacation rental a little in advance if fall takes your fancy. On the other hand, sunseekers can look forward to temperatures in the 90s on sunny days in July and August, perfect weather for taking in a show at Mitch Park Amphitheater.

Natural features

Lake living in Edmond

If you're keen to squeeze in a spot of outdoor time, Arcadia Lake delivers the goods, with more than 25 miles of shoreline, lush surrounding parks and paddleboat rentals. Equestrian trails are also available, as are routes for hiking and mountain biking. If you'd like to catch a glimpse of the local wildlife, including the Carolina chickadee and large white-tailed deer, it can pay to head to the lake early in the morning. Be sure to check out Spring Creek Park on the lake's western shore, where highlights include the Caddo Pavilion, Storybook Forest and a pretty beach that is perfect for swimming.
