With record temperatures and no end in sight to the 100 plus degree days we're enduring we could all use a place to cool off. That moody bitch Mother Nature won't give us a reprieve  from the sweltering summer heat so it's time to take matters into our own hands! If you're looking to cool off here's a few suggestions:

Flix Billiards


2607 N.W. Cache Road

If you’re looking for a place to cool off and take a “break” head to Flix Billiards. The A.C. is always crankin’ they’ve got ice cold beer, drink specials,  plenty of standard & regulation size pool tables, foosball, darts and more! It’s a good place to cool off & have a great time doing it. Flix Billiards is open Monday through Friday from 6:00pm to 2:00am / Saturday & Sunday from 4:00pm to 2:00am You must be 21 or older to enter.

Lawton Public Library


110 S.W. 4th Street

Another great place to cool off is the Lawton Public Library located in downtown Lawton. With all kinds of activities going on & various reading programs throughout the summer months it’s the perfect place to take the entire family. There’s always something going on, from story time, puppet shows, family game nights, teen book club & more! Check out a book or two, enjoy the computer lab & media centers or attend one of their many events scheduled for this summer. To get a full listing of events visit the Lawton Public Library online.

Carmike Cinemas


7102 N.W. Cache Road

One of the best places to cool off in Lawton is Carmike Cinemas. With cool air, ice cold soft drinks, a huge selection of concessions & the latest Hollywood releases you can’t go wrong. There’s nothing like going to the movies & kicking back in a cool theater for a couple of hours when it’s 100 plus degrees outside. The hard part is leaving & making it to the car without suffering heat stroke afterwards. For a full listing of movies, show times & ticket prices visit Carmike Cinemas official site.

4.) BRAUM’S:



4435 N.W. Cache Road & 2202 N.W. Gore.

Cool off inside & out at our local Braum’s. With two locations in Lawton you’re not too far away from your favorite ice cream, soft drinks & other flavorful frozen frosty treats. Not just ice cream they have a full breakfast, lunch & dinner menu. Plus a mini grocery store with fresh straight from the farm dairy products and more! Step up to the counter and place your order or go through the drive thru to cool off fast with Braum’s.

Wayne's Drive-In



#7 S.W. Sheridan Road & 6810 N.W. Cache Road.

It’s a Lawton historical monument a throwback to the good old days, Wayne’s Drive-In! I know what you’re thinking “How can you cool off at a drive-In” well crank the A.C. in the car, place your order then eat in the comfort of your air conditioned vehicle or just head to the house. It’s that easy! With endless drink combinations available you can add different flavors to create a soft drink masterpiece of your very own. Not only ice cold drinks Wayne’s Drive-In has one of the best burgers you’ll find anywhere! I’d suggest the double cheese burger, fries and to wash it down a cherry, vanilla, Dr. Pepper. Check out the full menu, hours of operation & more at their official site. Wayne’s Drive-In since 1950
