Oklahoma is located in the southern Great Plains of the United States. Also known as the "Sooner State" Oklahoma is bordered on the north by Kansas, on the east by Missouri and Arkansas, on the south by Texas and on the west and New Mexico at the panhandle. Oklahoma covers a land area of over 68,667 square miles and has a population of over 3.7 million. Oklahoma was known as the Indian Territory before it became the 46th state on November 16, 1907.
Hotels: Oklahoma's economy is based on the energy industry, agriculture, telecommunications, transportation and biotechnology. More than half of the population is concentrated around Tulsa and Oklahoma City, the second and third largest cities in Oklahoma, respectively.

Oklahoma is more than just the Great Plains. Oklahoma has four mountain ranges located in the eastern part of the state. The most famous of these is the Ouachita Mountains where the first Oklahoma oil strikes occurred in the early part of the 20th Century. Oklahoma is is still one of the largest producers of petroleum in the US. Oklahoma is also one of the nations largest producers of renewable wind energy.

Oklahoma's agricultural production is based largely on wheat and cattle. During the 1930's the northwestern part of Oklahoma was part of the "Dust Bowl" which was a period characterized by long droughts and high temperatures. The poor farming practices of the time exacerbated these climatic conditions and eventually led to significant soil erosion. This in turn led to disastrous conditions for the farmers in Oklahoma.

These condition led to dramatic efforts in soil and water conservation. Flood control systems and dams were built producing hundred of dams and reservoirs throughout the western part of the state. So far these conservation efforts in Oklahoma have been successful.
