It's World Tourism Day!

World Tourism Day falls on a Friday this year and on a day with a lot of visitors coming into Norman for the Oklahoma-Texas Tech football game on Saturday and/or for The University of Oklahoma Campus Activities Council's Fall Family Weekend (and maybe even for an early fall getaway), VisitNorman is certainly all in for celebrating travel and tourism.

Here are four ways to celebrate:

Take in a meal at a Norman Original restaurant. Whether you want to eat at an old favorite like The Diner, The Mont, Tarahumara's or Sooner Dairy Lunch or check out a newly opened place like Slice House, El Sombrero, Notorious P.I.E., Pryor's Pizza Kitchen, Volcano's Mexican Food or El Huevo Mexi-Diner, Norman has plenty of culinary offerings.

Check out a museum. From Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art and Sam Noble Museum to the Jacobson House Native Art Center and Moore-Lindsay Historical House, stroll through one to learn something new.

Visit Lake Thunderbird. Whether you want to bike on a trail, paddle on a boat, ski on the water or cast a fishing pole, enjoy the Oklahoma's only urban state park.

Test a taproom. Norman has welcomed new breweries to the city in the very recent past. With downtown and north locations, grab a pal and down some local suds at 405 Brewing Co., Black Mesa Brewing, Lazy Circles Brewing or Beer is Good (BIG) Brewing (or even the Brewhouse or Das Boot Camp which are also restaurants).
