Things to Do in Oklahoma City
No matter how you get around, be sure to check out the hottest attractions during your stay. The downtown area is home to a majority of the top sites, including the Oklahoma City Museum of Art (here, you'll find the world's biggest collection of Chihuly glass), the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum and the beautiful Myriad Gardens, an urban park that contains a seven-story botanical garden. Bricktown is the city's rapidly expanding entertainment mecca - catch some live music at Bricktown Music Hall or a movie at Harkins Movie Theatre, then stop by Bricktown Raw for some of the city's best Japanese cuisine followed by a nightcap at Bricktown Brewery.
If you're seeking a little escape to nature during your stay in Oklahoma City, head to the northwest quarter of the metropolis where you can find two lakes: Hefner and Overholser. Bring your fishing pole for a relaxing afternoon by the lakefront or your skates in winter when the waters are transformed into family-friendly skating rinks. While you're in town, be sure to stop by the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum for a look into the history of the Wild West, have a blast at western-themed amusement park Frontier City, and take a few moments of silence at the Oklahoma City National Memorial to pay respect to the victims and survivors of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.
