Enid is located in northwestern Oklahoma in Garfield County
(of which it is the county seat) at the junction of Hwy 60/64 & Hwy 64/412 and is host to the annual Tri-State Music Festival and Cherokee Strip Celebration. At Cherokee Strip, encounter "Grandpa", an animatronic robot that tells the story of the Oklahoma Land Rush.
Other area attractions include the Railroad Museum of Oklahoma, the Leonardo's Discovery Warehouse, the Midgley Museum, the Museum of the Cherokee Strip and George's Antique Auto Museum, which houses the only remaining 1918 Geronimo (a car once made in Enid), a 1911 Model T and other classics.
The Discovery Warehouse presents interactive exhibits including making your own birdhouse, creating music on a computer, crawling through a huge outdoor playground or space shuttle sim.
The Midgley contains the largest selenite crystal ever discovered in the salt plains as well as a 7,000 pound petrified Redwood stump, a mammoth bone and a genuine dinosaur egg.
