Day 2 – Overland Park to Bartlesville, OK 

After breakfast, we make our way to Bartlesville, nestled in the rolling hills of beautiful NE Oklahoma, for a two night stay. After lunch on our own in historical downtown Bartlesville, a local step-on guide will join us for a tour of the city. We will stop at their unique Community Center which is a must see for any architecture fan. It houses an acoustically superb performance hall that is considered to be “…one of the finest concert halls in this country,” said Ransom Wilson, Conductor of the Solisti New York Orchestra. Another stop will be an oil well where we will hear how oil was a key factor in Bartlesville’s “boom.” Attracted by the oil boom, Frank and L.E. Phillips, two brothers raised on an Iowa farm, came to Bartlesville in 1904. They hit a gusher north of Bartlesville, followed by 80 straight producers. The two founded Phillips Petroleum Company in 1917. Our tour ends at Phillips 66 Petroleum Company Museum, where the story of how a small Bartlesville business became a global energy enterprise and the people who made it happen comes to life! After checking into the hotel, our home for the next two nights, we will enjoy dinner together here. 

Included Meals: Breakfast, Dinner 

Hotel: Hilton Garden Inn (2 Nights) 

Day 3 – Bartlesville 

We will depart after breakfast at the hotel for a guided city tour of Pawhuska, known for its Native American culture, and more famously known as the small town that’s brimming with charm where Ree Drummond, aka The Pioneer Woman, launched her empire! This “Roaming of the Osage” tour includes stunning view of the Osage Hills and Tallgrass Prairie as well as learning about the 1920’s oil boom with stories of riches, historical buildings, famous cowboys, and Native Osage culture. Next we are treated to lunch at The Pioneer Woman Mercantile, which began as the Osage Mercantile in 1910! Ree & Ladd Drummond have spent years renovating this historic mercantile to give visitors from near & far a slice of small town hospitality. After lunch, our local guide again joins us and off we go to the 433,000 acre Drummond Ranch, located just 19 miles west of Pawhuska. Take in the beautiful scenery as we motor through this vast ranch and make our way to The Lodge, where most of Ree’s Food Network shows are filmed. The Lodge has been a guest house on the ranch for many years, with Ree & Ladd renovating it in 2008. We’ll enjoy walking through The Lodge and taking in the incredible view! Our last stop of the day will be at the Woolaroc Museum & Wildlife Preserve, where we will see one of the finest collections of southwest art in the world as well as buffalo, longhorns, elk, and more that call this haven home! We will return to the hotel for an evening on our own as we fondly remember this special day! 

Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch 

 

Day 4 – Bartlesville to Wichita, KS 

After breakfast we will depart for Ponca City to the Pioneer Woman Museum & Statue. Here we will learn the stories of Oklahoma’s pioneering women and their influence on the development of the state and nation. We will also view the bronze cast, 17 ft. high Pioneer Woman Statue, erected in 1930, depicting a young, sun-bonneted pioneer mother protectively leading her son by the hand with her head held high and a Bible in her hand. After lunch on our own, we will tour the historic Poncan Theatre, built in 1927. With elaborate ceilings and ornamentation as well as unique features – like a 5ft. I-beam supporting with balcony – the Poncan Theatre is a place of grandeur! Then we depart Ponca City and travel to Wichita, where more history will truly come to life at the Old Cowtown Museum. As we step onto Cowtown’s dirt roads, we’ll realize we’ve entered a world off the Chisholm Trail that is frozen in an 1865-1880 loop! We’ll witness Wichita’s transformation from a frontier settlement to a cattle town to an agricultural & manufacturing area. Don’t forget to head to Fritz Snitzler’s Saloon for a Sarsaparilla! After checking into our hotel, we’ll enjoy the “Kickback” reception. 

Included Meals: Breakfast, Manager’s Reception 

Hotel: Drury Plaza Hotel Broadview
