Located roughly 50 miles north of Tulsa along the Caney River, the city of Bartlesville got its start as a trading post in the late 1800s. Many museums and art galleries throughout town chronicle those early pioneer days. One of the most popular attractions is Woolaroc Museum and Wildlife Preserve, where llamas, ostriches, and buffalo roam across thousands of acres. A museum onsite celebrates the city's rich Native American past and harks back to the Old West with displays of Navajo pottery, covered wagons, and cowboy saddles. These days, stagecoaches are nowhere to be seen along the Pathfinder Parkway, but the scenic 12-mile stretch is great for hiking and bicycling. Trails wind alongside the Caney River through forests inhabited by deer, raccoons, and wild birds. For all its countryside charm, Bartlesville boasts a vibrant cultural scene. Each June, musicians flock to the city for the OK Mozart Festival. This year, Grammy winner Esperanza Spalding is slated to appear along with a number of classical performers from around the country.

Named the #1 pizza by Coweta Readers’ Choice in 2010, Goodfella's Pizzeria lifts cheese and sauce from the dreams of Italian chefs and serves them in a simple, laid-back atmosphere. Saddle up taste buds to scrumptious menu items such as the Boss pizza, a customer favorite loaded with pepperoni, beef, two kinds of sausage, Canadian bacon, and a garden of vegetables plopped onto a thick cushion of cheese ($10.49 small, $16.99 large). Or enjoy the Hoffa buried-in-cheese pizza, on which layers of pepperoni rest beneath a thick, gooey entombment ($9.49 small, $15.99 large). Besides pizza, Goodfella's fetes diners with homemade subs, fresh salads, breadsticks, buffalo wings, and packed calzones that serve as a handy snack for those swathed in the tail end of a two-person horse costume.
Boar’s Head meats and Amish cheeses bring deli cred to The Nut House’s pecan wood log cabin. Hot Mama’s customers customize sandwiches from a list of five meats, six cheeses, and eight spreads, with unusual options including tangerine habanero mustard and oven roasted garlic mayo. A full-sized chicken breast sandwich borrows a hot outfit from chipotle honey lime mustard before emerging on a plate beside potato salad and the dessert of the day ($7.49). Liquid lovers can elbow sandwiches out of the way for a cup of soup and half sandwich combo ($7.49), while those still full from yesterday’s full sandwich can opt for a lone half ($4.29). Hot Mama’s serves up made to order meat stacks Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.
The Amish Cheese House culls cheeses, meats, and more from Amish communities in the local area, Ohio, and Pennsylvania to fill mouths and appease appetites. Titillate taste buds with a collection of more than 40 cheese varieties, such as american, habanero jalapeño, southwestern salsa, lacey swiss, and extra-sharp cheddar. Peruse a display case brimming with deli meats from local sources before picking up an enticing pound of liverwurst or using a sample of cajun turkey wrapped in a layer of lebanon bologna to convince a live bear to act as a living room rug for a day. Patrons can also choose from a selection of gift boxes and a collection of miscellaneous goods, including locally made jellies, old-fashioned candies, granola, pastas, coffee, and tea. Though prices vary as much as the ingredients used to make cheese-in-a-can, cheeses start at $3 for a small slice and can range up to more than $25 for larger portions, Meats range from $7 to $20 per pound, and sugar-free chocolates start at $10.
