Piedmont, Oklahoma is a great little town! It’s a little piece of country right next to the city – perfect for day trips. Be sure to check these places, activities, and where to eat!

1. Chester’s Party Barn & Farm

Chester’s has it all, from a petting zoo to pony rides! They are open throughout the year, Thursday thru Sunday. Be sure to grab your boots though, it is a working farm after all! 

2. The Old Store 

Be sure to stop in The Old Store, an eclectic ‘junk’ destination with small town charm, located in the Historic District of Piedmont. With over 50 unique vendors, you will find everything you need AND some things you didn’t even know you needed! Plus it’s a cool old building with plenty of photo opportunities! 

3. Piedmont Community Park

This park alone is worth the drive to Piedmont! Plenty of fun stuff for everyone to enjoy. During the summer, bring swimsuits for your kiddos – there’s even a splash pad! 

4. Sharp’s BBQ 

If you haven’t tried this out yet, you need to do so immediately! Just make sure to go there when it’s open – their hours are a bit different from other restaurants. I promise, it’s worth the wait.

5. The Trendy Sister

Don’t forget to check this place out too, while you’re shopping. It’s right across the street from The Old Store; you can’t miss it! 

6. Piedmont Parades

Piedmont puts on some great parades. Especially for Independence Day and Founder’s Day. I think my favorite part is always the firetrucks, or maybe the band, or all the good food?

It’s hard to pick my favorite part of Piedmont – you’ll have to decide for yourself!

While you’re here, be sure to go slower than the speed limit; you’re not in the city anymore. Don’t be surprised to find yourself behind a tractor or see someone’s cattle got out. Enjoy being able to slow down! Don’t let the potholes scare you off either, just stick to the main roads and you’ll be alright. Piedmont is a little diamond in the rough, but a great place to live or spend the day!

My name is Kayla, I am a wife, and mother of three. My kids are the best, and I'm not biased at all! I have a son, who's 7, and two girls that are 4 and almost 1. I love my family. I also have an adorable dog and lots of extended family, that all live here in Oklahoma. I am an Okie girl born and raised but I love to travel and see the world. When my husband and I were married we moved to California. We moved back here in 2016, after my husband finished serving with the United States Marine Corps. I have always loved it here and can really appreciate all it has to offer! I love reading and writing, raising my three kids, being outdoors when it's nice and staying in when it's not. I enjoy crocheting, photography, gardening, hiking, scrapbooking, and because I have to laundry, cooking, dishes and sweeping! Hope to see you around at a park or a grocery store!
