With more than 300 days of sunshine a year, Oklahoma can be a year-round destination. Prices remain steady throughout the seasons, although summer tends to be the most popular time due to school break. Winter brings fewer visitors and less rain than summer, making it a good time to travel.
- high season: late May to early September
- low season: December to February
- shoulder season: March to mid-May, mid-September to November
Oklahoma sees 300 days of sunshine a year, and the annual average temperature is 60.5 degrees. Summers, however, can be hot and unpredictable, with intermittent showers, strong winds, and thunderstorms. The winters are short (December to February) and dry, with occasional sleet caused by moisture from the north.
Summer is the most popular time for visitors. However, festivals such as the Pumpkin Festival in Cordell in October also attract crowds.
Hotels, shops, and attractions remain open throughout the year.

Since prices rarely fluctuate, Oklahoma can be an affordable destination year-round.
