Oklahoma City offers much to visitors in search of a laid-back city with down-home southwestern charm. Walk through Bricktown or take a water taxi along the canal and enjoy some of the city’s best dining. The Oklahoma City National Memorial will certainly strike an emotional chord, while the memorial’s new museum provides great context and background information. The Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden is one of the top 10 zoos in the country and one of the oldest in the Southwest. And for fine arts, catch a live performance at the Civic Center Music Hall. For true southwestern flair, you can’t go wrong with an Oklahoma City vacation.
