Right in the heart of the Oklahoma wilderness, the city of Comanche is a step back in time to the days of cattle drives, and cowboy ranches, and that sort of spur-wearing, rodeo-riding atmosphere is still very much present in its streets. It’s famous for its steer, authentic American-Indian customs, and colorful lifestyle, with a friendly appeal that’s barely changed from its earliest settlement days.
Although it’s in the middle of the Oklahoma prairies, Comanche is a pretty lively place. Annual festivals, and regular cattle markets have earned it the title of ‘Rodeo Capital of the World’, and trail riding is a popular pastime here. The heart of the city is Oak Main Avenue, a wide thoroughfare with low-rise independent general stores, local crafts, and welcome pharmacies, interspersed here and there by quaint cafes, and local bars.
