A couple weeks ago, I was given the privilege to visit Padre Island National Seashore…
The Orr Family Farm in Oklahoma City
I don’t know if you all knew this, but I really like the state of Oklahoma. I love the weather, the culture, the food, the architecture, etc. But one of the places I’d never been to before was The Orr Family Farm. This farm is the perfect place for groups of all ages because there are so many family-friendly options. Football, jump pads, pedal carts, ziplining, you name it. It’s probably there.
I was blown away at how resourceful the entertainment was, but at the same time, it was very educational and also helped me have fun with family. Even though it was fall, the weather was perfect. It wasn’t too hot, and it wasn’t too cold. I was still able to wear a light jacket without burning up.
When you walk into the property, the first thing you’ll see is the vintage Merry go round. This ride is free and has held entertainment for the decades this farm has been around. As you start your walk down the gravel filled path, educational activities will grab your attention, and you’ll naturally want to check the games out. As you venture into the back end of the park, you will find bathrooms, corn hole, bounce pads, pedal carts, and an old-fashioned carnival game.
Once you cross the train tracks, you’ll discover an adventure filled area full of tube slides, racing games, zip lining, and a mountain of hay bales. When you see the hayride coming round the corner, grab your spot in line. This is a top-rated attraction, and sometimes during the busy season, the wait is long. Once you have found your place on the hayride, make sure you are ready to hop out and swipe a pumpkin from the adorably decorated pumpkin field near the corn maze. Pumpkin picking is so much fun. You never know what size, color, or even design of pumpkin you’ll find in the patch.
After spending about three hours exploring this adventure-filled farm, my family and I decided it was time to grab a bite to eat.
I wish I could have spent more time walking around this iconic farm. The next time I visit Oklahoma City, I’ll try my hardest to revisit The Orr Family Farm.
