Whether hanging out on the banks of the river or on Old Glory’s porch, taking a walk or visiting the Hochatown Petting Zoo, adults of all ages can rediscover the world through children’s eyes in these parts of Oklahoma.
It is by far one of my favorite things to do - rediscover the little things in life. And Broken Bow is just the place to do it.
We first started renting cabins in the area via Indian Princesses. I then booked a family reunion for my husband’s family. My mom and dad (Old Glory’s owners) wanted to check it out. It is now our happy place, our home away from home. And although we did ride four wheelers, horses and the mini train, the sweetest moments were the tiny discoveries and the memories of time spent with family - some of them with whom we are still making memories, while others we had our last interaction with in Broken Bow.
With each new birth in the family and each new friend we invite, many times it feels like the first time in Broken Bow. My youngest nephew Liam finds joy in each and every berry he picks, my assistant Jenny’s (the brains and brawn behind this site) daughter Marlee entertains us as she gets walked by Ruffles around the country block, and the older cousins have a few (not always so sweet but no-doubt entertaining) discoveries of their own.
Instead of getting irritated, I instead choose the joy when my nephew wants me to come look at the bluest blueberry (even if I’ve inspected 30 others) he has yet to discover or cry when Ruffles pulls Marlee to her knees or lecture the kids when I hear their old stories of late nights.
We hope that you, too, will appreciate the serenity of Broken Bow, Oklahoma, create memories, invite yourself into a bug’s world and find the bluest of blueberries.
