While in Broken Bow, there is plenty of adventure in town too. There are some great unique area restaurants with a variety of fun to be had. Abendigo’s Grill & Patio is a restaurant that believes casual dining with a touch of class is a combination of great food, great service, great atmosphere and great Broken Bow outdoor music. Known for generous portions, country cooking and a homestyle atmosphere, Steven’s Gap Restaurant offers everything from chicken fried steak, burgers and sandwiches, to large onion rings and homemade pie. There are many wonderful spots to try.
If you need a little more adventure, in The Maze of Hochatown, get lost in a 29,000 square foot wooden maze where not only do you have to find your way out, you have to find Hochatown Hotspots & Towers to complete your game card. Also, Hochatown Escape Games is a real life escape game adventure. Once you enter one of the two rooms, you will have 60 minutes to work as a team to find the clues, solve the puzzle and unlock the mystery. And if axe throwing is more your pace, that's an option you can experience at Thomahawk's. Or maybe you feel like testing your luck at Choctaw's Casino. That's why we encourage repeat visits to Broken Bow! Go for a weekend or stay longer. You will never grow tired of this area.
We would be remiss if we didn't mention the wonderful kid's activities available. Broken Bow is a very family friendly getaway from the rental cabins and their property amenities, to experiencing the wonders of nature through hiking and trail riding or even renting ATV's. Kids can also learn about mining for gold and discovering gem stones or fossils at Beavers Bend Mining Company. A licensed wildlife rehabilitation center will allow kids to hold, feed, pet and learn about all different types of animals. Then they can take a ride on Beavers Bend Depot and Trail Rides or go Mini golfing! Perhaps the best adventures will be the time spent with their families creating memories that will last a lifetime!
