Food Network star Ree Drummond, aka "The Pioneer Woman," put her small town of Pawhuska on the map, and now many people are flocking to this hidden gem in northern Oklahoma. Enjoy strolling through the historic downtown area, which has more than 80 buildings on the National Register of Historic Places, before stopping in to eat and shop at Drummond's Pioneer Woman Mercantile. Work off any sweets from the bakery on a hike at the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve or the Osage Hills State Park. As the headquarters of the Osage Nation, Pawhuska is also great place to learn about Native American history at the Osage Nation Museum.
