Summer is STILL here so let me share one of our Broken Bow summer trips! In June we took our yearly B.B. trip with our dear friends from Dallas, Texas. They have two boys the same age as our two older boys and the kids were already talking about returning for another fun weekend! Personally, I really love traveling in the month of July! June is so busy with end of school, graduations, weddings, and birthdays (at least in our family)! July is the middle of the summer and my favorite time to just relax. We left on July 4th for Broken Bow! We met our friends from Dallas which is only 2.5 hours for them. We booked our cabin with Blue Beavers at the Sweet Creeks cabin.
We LOOOVED this cabin!!! It was on a cul-de-sac, set down off the road, and was very open in the family room area which was perfect for 5 wild boys! It had large windows, a pation with tables, hot tub, and two creeks in the back. So cozy!!!! For more photos and to book this wonderful cabin click here:
For the 4th we decided to do our own fireworks, grill out and let the boys run wild!
For our second day we visited Beavers Bend Mining and the Petting Zoo. These are very fun and simple activities for families but the kids love it!
Of course, the BEST activity in Broken Bow is boating! We love Beavers Bend Marina because you can easily rent a boat, jet ski, or even a house boat. The lake is gorgeous!!!!! You cannot build near the lake so when you are on your boat you just see gorgeous scenery and it is so much fun!!! We had this on our to do list! www.beaversbendmarina.com
Friday we had a very special activity planned. We made a reservation at the Endangered Ark Foundation in Hugo, OK. An hour east of Broken Bow. This is a MUST do! You have to be on time so please give yourself plenty of wiggle room. It is the second largest home to Asian Elephants in America and they also take are of retired circus elephants. I suggest visiting in the cooler months. July was HOOOOT! You can find our more information here: www.endangeredarkfoundation.org
After your visit a very popular place to eat is the Buffalo Grill!! Ummmm, we would travel back to Hugo just to eat there! Going to Hugo, OK to see the elephants is a must do!!
Saturday we headed home already planning our next getaway.
When you book your cabin in Broken Bow, it IS part of your experience. The cabins are so fun and gorgeous. Many have game-rooms, hot tubs, outdoor fireplaces, fire pits, etc. Everyone can relax and enjoy! We will be posting more in the future about the cabins we love!!
