If you are willing to drive a bit further, Eureka Springs, AR is a fun, cool place to visit. Also -- 1st rate outdoor activities (camping; hiking; canoing; rafting) along the Buffalo and White Rivers.

Keystone Lake is about 20 miles west of Tulsa. There is an eagle sanctuary below the dam and plenty of places to just sit and look at the scenery.

Default I'm Going To Lay It On You!!!!

If I drive 30 mins - 2 hrs. outside of the city, in any direction, what will I find? I am not asking for everything that I will find, but, overall, will I just find open spaces? Is there any sort of space just to park your car and stare at the sky (in the day or night)? If I want to relax in nature, what do you recommend?

Or any other places within 2 hours that are interesting and pleasant? I am not looking for a lot of stimulating entertainment--I prefer something quirky and niche.

Any suggestions?
