Trip Report: Stillwater, OK

Jump to last reply

We went to Stillwater, OK for a housewarming last weekend and I thought I'd do a quick trip report on it. We were only there for two days and we stayed at a friend's house.

The drive down was gorgeous. I love driving through Kansas in the summer and this drive was no exception. The flint hills are some of the most beautiful land in the U.S., especially after a good rain. The green grass and the black soil stand out, and the area looks like a painting. I also like driving to Stillwater because it's a two-lane highway the whole way down--there's no having to pass a semi by driving as fast as possible in the oncoming traffic lane.

To be honest, I wasn't impressed at first by Stillwater. The town looks depressed (partially because it's summer and there are no students there). The stores looked dirty and the town was pretty run down. However, the subdivision where our friend lives was nice and Boomer lake looked pretty nice.

We had Bad Brad's bbq for dinner that night, which was really good. The meat was cut thick, which was a nice change-up from the thin slices in KC. The cowboy beans were also fantastic.

The next morning we went to drive around the OSU campus (my fiancee and his friends are alumni). The campus and the buildings are beautiful. I love how everything is all brick and has prairie-style lines to the architecture. The builder didn't try to make the school look ivy-league, he wanted it to enhance its surroundings. There are lovely green lawns surrounding the campus and interspersed through it.

We went to Eskimo Joes for lunch. I hope what I'm about to say doesn't make anyone too angry, but I didn't think it was that good. At all. We had the cheese fries with bacon for our starters. You can't go wrong with that. I had a cheeseburger and so did everyone else. The burger wasn't anything special and the fries tasted pretty weird with no cheese covering them. I bought a t-shirt, but couldn't believe how busy it was.

After that we went home (told you it was a short trip)!

Would I recommend anyone going to Stillwater to visit? No. But it did look like a really fun place to go to college. Very nice campus and lots of cheap places to do things.
