Broken Arrow's Rose District.

Stay

If you’re into lovely scenic views and lazy hammocks swaying in the breeze, then you need to unload your weekender at Stone Creek Bed & Breakfast (20681 E. 77th St., Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, stonecreekbb.com) when you make the trip to the Broken Arrow area. The pretty cabin sits on more than 80 acres and features an outdoor hanging bed with a mattress warmer perfect for cuddling, a stone fireplace wall, a whirlpool tub and rustic décor—plus it’s stocked with board games and snacks and is situated beside a small lake.


Harvest

At Thunderbird Berry Farm (7515 S. 321st E. Ave., Broken Arrow, Oklahoma), guests can spend the day under the sun picking fresh blueberries for just a few dollars a pound. If you want the sweet stuff without doing the work, you can also buy pre-picked berries, frozen berries or berry jam, among other things.

In Broken Arrow, the Rose District (rosedistrict.com) is the perfect place for a summertime stroll.
