This burly city sits at the junction of three major rivers that brought Native Americans, explorers, traders and pioneers. Today, those same groups and many others come by way of three major highways. No matter how they got here, these incredibly diverse groups come together to form the unique character of the place we know as Muskogee.
Those same highways make it easy to get around, and get outside.
Those great rivers and their lakes lie just beyond the city borders in the foothills of the Ozark mountains. Boating, fishing, hiking, camping, hunting and wildlife watching are just a few of the things Muskogee residents enjoy year-round.
A strong economy and proactive business development is bringing jobs, good housing and retail business growth. Education fuels that growth with a good public school system, Indian Capital Technology Center and several higher educational institutions nearby.
Muskogee is becoming known for its attractions with an eccentric twist. The Renaissance Faire in May is one of the country’s biggest. A BBQ and Chili Cook-off, a Mud Volleyball Tournament and a Cardboard Regatta are just a few of the popular annual events in the city. Honor Heights Park and the Veterans Center bring thousands of visitors every year. Residents get to enjoy it all without even having to leave home.
Muskogee is full of genuine characters who have survived some hard times. Together, they make up the rich fabric of this strong Northeast Oklahoma city.
