Where else but in the very heart of the Sooner State should Oklahoma City reside?
This legendary intersection of both Native American and Old West history has come to be an amazing blend of the past and totally modern cultures. It’s a town with a wealth of museums, an amazing entertainment scene and a whole lot of excellent eating. Whether you’re in the mood to try out some new cowboy boots or you have a hankering to brush up on the latest science trends, you’ll find both and so much more in this incredibly surprising gem of a town.
While about 650,000 people make their home within the Oklahoma City limits, those numbers swell to well over a million in the extended metro area. That museum collection we mentioned includes everything from the Science Museum Oklahoma to the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum and the Oklahoma City Museum of Art — no less than 13 accredited museums in all. Outside, you can take a stroll in the Myriad Botanical Gardens or chill at Hefner Lake and Park. The Bricktown Entertainment District will cater to all your restaurant, wine bar and pub crawl needs. Or get your feet wet with awesome aquatic activities in the Boathouse District.
