Welcome! It's a Great Day in Shawnee!

Shawnee sits at the crossroads of America on Interstate 40, just minutes from Interstates 44 and 35.  While we maintain our independent small-town atmosphere complete with historic downtown shopping district, we have many familiar restaurants and stores you will recognize.

The Shawnee area is unique that we are home to four tribal governments, each with their own cultures, languages and traditions.  Our history is tied to the settling of Oklahoma and the southern plains. This distinctive past can be discovered in our many museums and cultural centers; or a conversation with one of our citizens.

Shawnee is home to one of the state’s largest RV parks and several campground facilities to fit your needs.  

For those that like a little more peace and quiet, Shawnee has nearby lakes with record breaking fishing, boating, and plenty of space to relax.  Our active guests enjoy Shawnee’s status as a walkable community with growing biking lane access and numerous parks. 

If you enjoy the nightlife, Shawnee’s five casinos and numerous live performance venues offer music and theater to suit your version of “high culture.” 

Our hotels, restaurants and shopping offer something for most tastes.  From fast and affordable to deluxe and leisurely, Shawnee can provide just the kind of experience you crave. 

Whether this is your first visit, or you know us well, we are here to make this trip the best it can be!  See you soon and many returns to Shawnee, OK, USA!  

Spend the Day, Weekend, Week or Longer
Whether you have time to visit us for a short time on a day trip or stay at one of our fine lodging establishments during a cross country expedition, the City of Shawnee’s Tourism Department is here to help you every step of the way.  Be aware, some of our citizens started as guests who chose to make Shawnee their permanent home.

Shawnee is an excellent hub for exploring all of Oklahoma’s Destinations on your next outing.


It is a Great Day in Shawnee!
