If you’ve lived in Oklahoma for a time, you most certainly have heard that the parking meter (Ca-ching!) and the shopping cart were invented here, so you know that there is a lot of Okie ingenuity going on. But our Dino Lalli likes to point out other features that make Oklahoma such a great place to live… and an outstanding place to visit.
