You can take in the changing of the seasons with a drive down Highway 10 from Miami to Tahlequah, parallel to the Illinois River.

There are 13,000 acres surrounding Oologah Lake north of Claremore. The State recommends heading along Highway 88 and stopping to admire the leaves from one of the mountain bike trails. You can even pass through the Will Rogers Memorial Museum.
