Oklahoma City Guide

Oklahoma City quite literally sprang up overnight. On April 22, 1889, the Great Land Run allowed 10,000 homesteaders to dash across the border and grab any unclaimed lands for themselves. A tent city was erected that evening, and there’s been a city there ever since. But this Sooner State capital is now undergoing a renaissance—downtown has been revitalized, particularly along the Oklahoma River, and it’s becoming more of a tourist destination. Visitors will find contemporary museums, modern art displays, and vibrant neighborhoods, as well as three large lakes and numerous public parks.

One Day in OKC

  • Oklahoma National Stockyards: The largest cattle market in the world. Livestock auctions are open to the public and held on Monday and Tuesday starting at 9 a.m. Head to the beloved Cattlemen’s Steakhouse for lunch, or go shopping for cowboy boots in the surrounding neighborhood.
  • Myriad Botanical Gardens: If cattle auctions aren’t your style, maybe you’d prefer a morning on 17 beautifully landscaped acres in the heart of the city. Features include a sunken lake, public art installations, and a tropical conservatory filled rare plants and waterfalls.
  • Bricktown: A picturesque river walk leads past eateries and shops housed in the red-brick buildings that gave this historic neighborhood its name. Board a water taxi to travel in style.
  • Oklahoma City National Memorial: Located on the site of the former Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building downtown, a somber memorial—which includes a Field of Empty Chairs and a reflecting pool—honors those who were killed in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.

Going Further: Notable OKC Museums

  • National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum: One of the world’s largest collections of art and artifacts from the American West. Wander the streets of a recreated prairie town and check out more than 2,000 works of visual art.
  • Oklahoma City Museum of Art: This downtown institution houses a respectable collection of paintings and sculpture, but its true specialty is glassworks by Dale Chihuly, including a 50-foot yellow-tinted tower in the atrium.
  • Museum of Osteology: Get a look at more than 300 animal and human skeletons, including the bones of a 40-foot whale.

Where to Stay

  • Homewood Suites by Hilton Oklahoma City-Bricktown: Enjoy a complimentary hot breakfast before heading out of this all-suite hotel into OKC’s entertainment district. Museums, shops, restaurants, and the botanical gardens are all within walking distance.
  • Ambassador Hotel: Set in Midtown, this completely renovated 1920s hotel offers Art Deco elegance, as well as a restaurant, rooftop bar, and outdoor pool.
  • Colcord Hotel is a 1910 luxury hotel offering free downtown shuttle service, two restaurants, and spacious rooms.
