The best season to visit Oklahoma is, in fact, its peak tourist season from May through September. Arriving a little early to the states major points of interest can save you from the worst of the crowds, if not the peak season rates. Fall sees the arrival of the Oklahoma State Fair, which draws big crowds and lasts from September to October.
The off-seasons will, off course, offer substantially lower prices, and there are things to enjoy in Oklahoma all year long. Visitors just have to look a bit harder to find them. Outdoors enthusiasts will have more room to themselves in the spring, for example.
