Start planning how you can spend a weekend in Oklahoma City. Once this cold snowy weather is gone, there are plenty of fun and educational things to do.
•1. Spend a day in Bricktown, the heart of downtown Oklahoma City. Bricktown offers numerous entertainment options, including water taxi rides on the canal that flows around the downtown shops and restaurants. You can also catch a Redhawks game at the Bricktown Ballpark in the late spring and summer months. Choose from any of Bricktown’s impressive list of restaurants for lunch or dinner, including canal-side eateries where you can sit on the open terrace and watch the people down below and, if you’re lucky, catch some live music lilting along on Oklahoma’s famous wind.
•2. Go to the Myriad Botanical Gardens and wander through the luscious landscaping. Be sure to tour the Crystal Bridge Tropical Conservatory, which houses hundreds of exotic plant varieties. The image of the Crystal Bridge is distinctly recognizable and has almost become synonymous with Oklahoma City itself.
•3. Take a trip back in time to the Wild West at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, which offers an array of regional art as well as a retelling of an old western town.
•4. Explore the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, home to classic and modern artistic pieces, as well as traveling exhibitions and a beautiful permanent display of the glass expressions of Dale Chihuly. Sip wine and enjoy a gourmet meal at the trendy Museum Cafe after your cultural experience.
•5. Visit the Oklahoma City bombing memorial for an emotional experience that allows few to walk away spiritually untouched.
•6. Be a kid again at the Frontier City theme park or White Water Bay water park during the warmer months. These Six Flags-affiliated parks offer roller coasters and water slides that promise a good time and smiles all around.
•7. Indulge your sophisticated side at the Civic Center Music Hall, which offers various attractions throughout the year. Come here to enjoy a musical or an evening with the philharmonic.
•8. Commune with nature at the Oklahoma City Zoo, reportedly one of the best in the country. Spend an afternoon admiring the sea life in the aquarium and marveling at the exotic beauty of the tigers, gorillas and numerous other creatures of the wild.
