    Beggs, OK
    Beggs is a small rural town with a big heart. There are a few shops, a grocery store, a few restaurants, gas stations, a flower shop, and small-town events. Back in my teenage years, the big thing was to go to the drive-in, get a cherry vanilla coke, and cruise Main Street until you found a friend. Then we would pull over into the middle of the street so we could just catch up. It is a great community to raise a family along with some cows, chickens, pigs, and crops.
  • I was fortunate to spend an exciting day photographing a successful bird hunt. While my friend trained his dog, I got a good look at the hunting land near Beggs, OK. Located in Okmulgee County, Beggs offers some of the nicest field and upland hunting opportunities in the state. Just south of Beggs, a small farm and ranch community where the people are nice and friendly. Beggs is a wonderful place to live in Oklahoma.
  • The newest addition to Downtown Beggs is Penny's Diner. Located on the corner, this once local laundromat has been transformed and revitalized into a home town diner with great food and local character. The burgers offered here are 1/4 pound, 1/2 pound, and a full pound portion. The chicken fried steaks are a main staple. Penny's offers weekly specials and is quite busy around dinner time.I had the pleasure of dining here last week and I will be back. The service is unbeatable and eating here is like being transformed back to the 1950's. They offer homemade pies that are worth the trip. Check out Penny's Diner on your next trip into town.
  • I stopped in at Shaffer's Drive-In in Beggs as I often do when I'm in town. Shaffer's Drive-In is the happening place. It is a throwback to the 1950's style drive up diner. Here you can often find locals grabbing a chicken basket, burger, some fries or my favorite...a Cherry Vanilla Dr Pepper. I have had the special Dr Pepper all over Green County. From Sonic Burgers to the Dairy Queen, but no one does it better than Shaffer's Drive-In.

    When you are in town looking for properties or just catching an event, make sure to stop in to Shaffer's Drive-In and grab a quick bite to eat. Come hungry and leave satisfied full. The locals are friendly and the high school kids who take your orders are great too. Occasionally, the local town mutt comes by to get a fry or two from you, but that is just part of the charm of this place. It can get quite busy over here in the evenings because the food can't be beat. Do not miss Shaffer's Drive-In if you are in Beggs, just off of Highway 75 on Highway 16 in Downtown Beggs.
  • Beggs has a lot to offer. It is the small town where I graduated from high school. My parents and other family members still live there. It has an old time feel, but if you get off the main drag and get on to some of the rural roads, there is such peace and calmness about it. You can drive for miles and never meet another vehicle. The cattle and horses look at you like, "what are you doing here? Are you here to feed me?". I really enjoy getting off of the main roads and doing some backroads driving and photography. We miss so much in our everyday travels by always being in a hurry and following the same ol' routes. The change of pace is always a treat.
  • When I was a child, before rural water became available, this is where we would go to get our water barrels filled. My dad would let us climb the platform and work the pump. The metal tube would reach from the spout of the pump to the barrels in the back of the truck. The water was so cold and tasted so much better than the water that comes out of the tap today. On hot summer days, my cousins and I would ride our bicycles down to the old well and get a cold drink and splash ourselves with it. The picture here is what that well looks like today. Overgrown, and no longer in use. But the memories will live in my mind forever.
  • Beggs, Oklahoma is located approximately 40 minutes south of Tulsa and about 20 minutes north of Okmulgee.
