Even though I've lived here in Lawton for a pretty long time, when I get the occasional house guest, I usually struggle coming up with things to keep them entertained.

Before you hop on that notion that "there's nothing to do in Lawton," that's just not true. There are no boring places, only boring people.

Keep in mind, this quick list isn't something that is set in stone. I'm sure in time, together, we'll think of new and different things to add to the list as we remember or new things come to the area.

I realize the elephant in the room is the refuge as a whole. That's fine, but telling someone "Oh yeah, go see the mountains" isn't the best way to encourage someone to see all it has to offer. We're gonna have to break it down a little into the must-see portions vs what you can just view off the highway rolling through it.

If I've missed something that you really enjoy, and it seems like something that would have legitimate mass appeal, feel free to give me a shout so I can add it to the list.

This should not only be a great reference tool for those who are brand new to Lawton - Fort Sill, but also a good reminder to those like us that have been there, done that, and forgotten about it over the years.
