Beavers Bend, OK Girls Trip

IMG_9544.JPG

For my mom’s birthday, my aunts, mom and I decided to take a girls trip to Hochatown near Beavers Bend State Park in Oklahoma.  It is just a two-hour drive for me, and it’s a great mountain getaway.  IMG_9540IMG_9541

We’ve been several times in the past, and every time we come back there seems to be more options for travelers as far as entertainment.  IMG_9545IMG_9547.JPGIMG_9546.JPGIMG_9550.JPGIMG_9551IMG_9558.JPGIMG_9560.JPGIMG_9562.JPGIMG_9563.JPGIMG_9564.JPGIMG_9565.JPGIMG_9569.JPGIMG_9556.JPGIMG_9570.JPGIMG_9571.JPG

As you can see, there are great restaurants, a wine shop, and several brew houses.  My aunts arrived before I did, and they enjoyed the pizza at Grateful Head.  We met up at the Beavers Bend Brewery for a flight of beers.  It had two outdoor patios, one with hanging lights.  We did not make it to Girls Gone Wine this time, but we have in the past. It has wine tasting and fun wine-themed gifts.IMG_9622IMG_9623IMG_9624fullsizeoutput_14d6

For lunch, one day we tried Brews and Blues, a Blues Brothers-themed restaurant known for its burgers.  My aunts ordered the burgers, and I ordered the Chicken Sandwich.  It was all very tasty with large helpings.IMG_4640IMG_4620IMG_4670IMG_9615IMG_4625

For outdoor recreation, there is zip-lining for the adventurous.  There is a “Duck Boat” ride.  There is fly-fishing, horse-back riding, canoeing/kayaking, and lots of hiking trails.  There is a marina where you can rent boats, jet skis, and tubes.  We enjoyed a 3-hour boat ride!  Would highly recommend this!  We even enjoyed jumping in the beautiful lake for a swim.IMG_4643IMG_9654IMG_9662

At night, we cooked at home or had a chartcuterie tray.IMG_9605

My aunt made shrimp and crabmeat au gratin with garlic bread and salad!  Yum!IMG_9677

I brought some of my fave cheeses and crackers for a light dinner.

Our cabin was great!  It had a hot tub, three fireplaces, several big-screen televisions, and a nice kitchen with island.  It slept 10-14 people. Check out our cabin here!

All-in-all we had lots of great laughs, stories and times together!  I am looking forward to our next jaunt together!

Toodle-oo,

Melanie
