M is for Medicine Park. The cobblestone streets of Medicine Park lead to a variety quaint shops and adorable cabins that line Medicine Creek, the focal point of this former 1920s resort town. Located in southwestern Oklahoma, this area once attracted everyone from movie stars to politicians. Today, you can stay at the Stardust Inn Bed & Breakfast for a quiet retreat or rent the Bonnie & Clyde Cottage where the famous pair of outlaws once found refuge. #OklahomaAtoZ
