Stillwater
The following is provided by the Stillwater Convention and Visitors Bureau (http://www.come2stillwater.com)

Visitors have always known Stillwater is a special, friendly town. They just love Stillwater�s wide variety of entertainment options from star-studded concerts at the Tumbleweed Dance Halls and Concert Arena to shopping in the historic Downtown or Campus Corner areas.  With an abundance of attractions and numerous, unique �home-grown� restaurants, Stillwater is an instant favorite. Stillwater�s hospitable attitude was best captured by a story retold in the November 2004 issue of Oklahoma Living Magazine. Susie Kessler, a Main Street merchant, knows of one visitor who was duly impressed by the town�s friendly atmosphere. �A friend came to visit me from Chicago so I took her downtown because we have a lot of really neat boutique shops here,� Kessler says.  �She was really enjoying the shops, and we were walking down the sidewalks, and a cowboy came walking towards us and as he passed, he tipped his hat to both of us and said �Howdy Ma�am,� and walked on by.  My friend turned to me and said �How did you do that?!  It�s like something out of a movie!� And I said, �It�s not a movie, it�s Stillwater.� For additional information, visit http://www.come2stillwater.com

Stroud
StableRidge Vineyards is proudly located in Stroud, Oklahoma. Stableridge Vineyards & Winery is located one mile west of downtown and bordered by Old Stroud Road & Historic Route 66. The original town of Stroud was established around the vineyard property after the land run in 1889. Later, the entire town was moved one mile east when the railroad was built through the lower land. A stable was built into the side of a hill on the property giving us the name "StableRidge". Today, the front door of the vineyard and winery are located on the Historic Route 66. Our tasting room and gift shop is located in the town's original Catholic Church. The church building was started in 1898 using materials milled from local farms and ranches. It was finished in 1902 and dedicated to the boys who died in the Civil War. The original bead board ceiling and walls were covered in the 1950's, and re-discovered during our recent renovation. Future renovations will include placing stained glass in the arches above the windows that have been enclosed with tin since the building was constructed. 918.968.3321 or 7.800.359.3990.
