AGRITOURISM--Agritourism

AGRITOURISM--Agritourism operators in Oklahoma are finding there are benefits of a down economy. High fuel prices have caused many visitors to look to the tourist opportunities in their backyards, rather than drive across country to a vacation destination. Hunting lodges, wineries and wildlife tours are just some of the ventures that are planning to expand their offerings to take advantage of the trend.

WILDLIFE VIEWING--Many farmers and ranchers in Oklahoma utilize the natural resources available to them in their agritourism ventures. Besides serving as a vacation opportunity, many also choose to add some educational resources to teach visitors about the land, wildlife and culture of the High Plains.

WESTERN HERITAGE--Some agritourism businesses capitalize on the draw of Western heritage and the image of the cowboy. (Photo courtesy Oklahoma Tourism.)
