Oklahoma's new 2019 state map explores a "Land of No Boundaries"
March 8, 2019
Cross boundaries to explore Oklahoma’s hidden treasures and ultimate destinations in the new, official 2019 state map now available to travelers. The bi-fold map highlights hidden treasures from eclectic architecture and streetscapes to local businesses, farms and agritourism. Destinations range from scenic to educational to recreational; Oklahoma is limitless in its offerings. This year’s map theme accompanies the Oklahoma Tourism and Recreation Department’s Travel Guide “Land of No Boundaries.”
Diverse attractions such as Lake Altus-Lugert, Pawhuska’s Pioneer Woman Mercantile or the new street cars in downtown Oklahoma City are just a few examples of a variety of experiences available in this boundary-less state. A new, popular attraction is Tulsa’s Gathering Place Riverfront Park with its pelican slides from Adventure Playground featured on the map cover.
A highlight of the map is a message from newly elected Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt, emphasizing Oklahoma as a leading industry competitor and a great place to expand a business, while still being a place for adventure travelers and families to explore.
“We’re extremely proud of this new state map efficiently created with our partners. The Land of No Boundaries is the perfect theme to describe the diversity of amazing places and spaces for visitors to enjoy across the state,” said Terri Angier, ODOT spokeswoman.
“Even more importantly, the official state map is not just for out-of-state visitors, but also a guide to help Oklahomans explore their beautiful state. Gracing the cover of this map is the world-renowned Gathering Place, already cited by USA Today as the #1 Best New Attraction in the country,” Angier said.
Traveler information such as a state parks facilities guide, helpful phone numbers and website addresses such as TravelOK.com are included to assist drivers while traveling in our state. Also included are detailed maps of Oklahoma City, Tulsa, the state Capitol area, Lawton/Ft. Sill, Enid, Stillwater and Muskogee, a mileage chart and all turnpike routes.
Design and development of the state map is a continual process at ODOT with its partners, the Oklahoma Tourism and Recreation Department and Oklahoma Turnpike Authority. Planning for this map began in mid-2018. This year, a total of 800,000 copies of the 2019-2020 state map are being printed in two cycles at an estimated total cost of $104,000.
Maps are free of charge at any of the Tourism Welcome Centers statewide, all ODOT division offices and the Tourism and Recreation Department warehouse and can be requested by visiting TravelOK.com/Brochures. The map is also available for viewing on the ODOT website www.odot.org under Traffic & Travel > Traveler's Information.
