Bizzell Memorial LibraryThe University of Oklahoma is on a beautiful campus, located in the heart of Norman, a town with a population of about 100,000. Norman was ranked 6th in the 2008 Money Magazine's list of America's best small cities. It is a charming town with tree-lined streets and excellent public schools, popular and locally owned restaurants and local markets, and great year-round events, such as Jazz in June, the Norman Water Garden Tour, the Chocolate Festival, the Midsummer Nights' Fair, the Medieval Fair, the May Fair Arts Festival, the Winterfest Celebration, the Norman Music Festival, the Cleveland County Fair, and the Annual Intertribal Gourd Dance. Other popular attractions include the Firehouse Art Center, the Jacobson House Native Art Center, the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art, bed & breakfasts, downtown antique stores, several wonderful parks, rodeos, pow wows, and nearby Lake Thunderbird. Oklahoma City, located about 20 miles north of Norman, offers numerous attractions, such as the legendary National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, the Myriad Botanical Gardens, the Oklahoma City Zoo, and historic Bricktown, a renovated entertainment and dining district. Oklahoma also has 50 state parks and the Wichita Mountains National Wildlife Refuge, which showcase the natural beauty and ecosystem diversity throughout the state.
