A Turkey and Some Mistletoe!
Here we are decking the halls and trimming the tree in December! It's that wonderful time of year where we mix the gratitude of Thanksgiving with the hope of Christmas and we get to sip a little hot cocoa and enjoy a good, old-fashioned holiday in the Osage!
We want to take this time to wish you and yours the very best as we wind up 2020 and invite you to come spend the holidays in a place where we've cornered the market on social distancing FUN!

Walking in a Winter Wonderland
You're always on a scenic drive when you're in the Osage - and this time of the year it's especially beautiful with all the seasonal lighting. Enjoy an evening stroll through the
Tulsa Botanic Garden of Lights,
a family drive through Woolaroc,
or tell 2020 to #ZipThis with an evening zip line adventure through the Osage Hills at POSTOAK Canopy Tours out at POSTOAK Lodge!
In fact, Oklahoma's own Lieutenant Governor and Tulsa's favorite news anchor, Tess Maune, recently joined The Tourism Gal 50 feet up on a zip tower as they both took the
"Zippin' Challenge."
Holiday Zipping will be taking place December 7- 20th, just minutes from downtown Tulsa! You too can Zip Off 2020. For ticket information, click the button below.

Here Comes Santa Claus
The cocoa will be hot, marshmallows will be roasting, and the smiles will be abundant in the Osage as our communities welcome Santa Claus to town and enjoy an Osage Christmas!
