Wyandotte, Oklahoma: Tribal Heritage and a 24/7 Casino near Grand Lake o' the Cherokees
Wyandotte may be small—a little more than 300 people live here—but it has a lot of cultural heritage. The town serves as the tribal headquarters of the Wyandotte Nation, who were relocated in Oklahoma in 1867. For a little outdoor recreation, head just 15 miles south to scenic Grand Lake o’ the Cherokees. The lake attracts an array of annual visitors who come for premier bass fishing, sailing, and to stare at their own reflections.
