If your life could use more interaction with horses, there’s no better place to go on a summer weekend than Will Rogers State Historic Park. For more than 60 years, the Will Rogers Polo Club has been playing games on a field first laid out by the famed humorist. Watching the games is free, though admission to the park costs $12 per car. There’s something soothing about watching teams of horses race back and forth, but keep alert — the ball doesn’t always stay on the field of play. Kids can pet the horses between games, which should keep them happy. For you, there’s another selling point: Booze is allowed. —Gene Maddaus
