90 Days of Summer Activities

The 90 days of summer are about to begin in Edmond! Fear not, I have your annual list of summer activities in Edmond and Oklahoma City plus this year, I’ve added a few day road trips around Oklahoma.

I’ve combed through all my resources to compile a list of family friendly activities and events for each day of summer. Some will need a bit of planning or the purchase of tickets in advance. If you know about a great event that I’ve missed, be sure to add it in the comments at the end of the post.
