Hit the Trails & Take a Drive up Mount Scott at the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge
The family and I were sitting around trying to think of an activity we can all do together that doesn't cost too much, or even better, free. Well, after we started listing "things to do" hiking came up and everyone agreed we'd hit the trails. It's the perfect day trip, or weekend activity that will get us all outdoors and off the couch.

Looking for something to do? Head to the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge in Lawton, OK.
I've lived in Lawton, Fort Sill for most of my life and have been to the refuge hundreds of times, but there are still plenty of new places to explore. It surprises me how many people who live here that have never been to the mountains, even some who were born here. It's a great place to visit and unwind and there are tons of different places to go, activities, and incredible views to take in. There are tons of things to see and to do.
