Oklahoma City


As Oklahoma's state capital and largest city, this bustling metropolis of 1.2 million residents is home to a rapidly expanding roster of fun things to see and do. The Heartland Flyer will carry you right into downtown and the adjacent Bricktown Entertainment District. This renovated warehouse area was built before and after World War I, when brick was the most plentiful building material. Today this lively area offers plenty to do, day and night, including watching the top-rated Oklahoma Red Hawks play in the nostalgic SBC Bricktown Ballpark. The mile-long Bricktown Canal and river walk is lined with restaurants, with water taxis providing guided cruises. North of downtown, explore galleries lined with priceless western art and treasures at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, where you can stroll down the streets of a recreated western town and each year see the Prix de West Invitational Art Exhibition and sale of the finest in current representational Western art in the world. Visit the west in action at historic Stockyards City, where real cowboys have been coming for more than 85 years to stock up on cattle, clothes, equipment, and to enjoy a great steak. For the west at its most exciting, enjoy more than 50 rides at Frontier City Amusement Park. Oklahoma City’s affordable attractions include the 17-acre Myriad Botanical Gardens, Oklahoma City Zoo (rated one of the top 10 in the country), Remington Park horse racing track and the Omniplex Museum, with more than 7 museums under one roof, plus the state’s first large-format domed theater.
