What Are the Best Oklahoma City Attractions?
If you are looking for Oklahoma City attractions that are a "must do", then here are the best ones. The wide variety of attractions available will be able to please you whether you are a tourist on vacation or an OKC resident looking for some fun.
Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum
Visit the beautiful and thought-provoking Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum to learn about and honor those who were killed and those who survived the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. The Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial is the #1 "must do" Oklahoma City attraction.
The Myriad Botanical Gardens and Crystal Bridge Tropical Conservatory (save yourself some breath and ask locals for either the Myriad Gardens or the Crystal Bridge) are located in downtown OKC just a few blocks from the Oklahoma City National Memorial and right across the street from the Cox Convention Center. They are a beautiful setting for you to take a walk, smell the flowers and feed the ducks and Koi.
My kids' personal favorite OKC attraction, Frontier City is a western-themed amusement park with several roller coasters and other rides for the older kids, and a variety of rides for the younger kids.
White Water Bay
White Water Bay is the largest water park in Oklahoma with 30+ slides, rides, and pools. It is a companion park to Frontier City and a season pass will get you into both parks.
The Oklahoma City Zoo
The OKC zoo was established in 1904 and is one of the top zoos in the country. Along with apes, bears, lions, and many other animals, it also has a train, swan paddle boats, and a carousel.
Bricktown Oklahoma City
Bricktown is a rejuvenated warehouse district in downtown OKC that now contains restaurants, night clubs, shops, and the AT&T Bricktown Ballpark. My family loves to go on the giant snow tubing slides that are set up at the ballpark during the Christmas season.
The Bricktown canal has a river walk and water taxi service that gives narrated tours of the area.
Oklahoma City Stockyards
The Oklahoma City Stockyards is the world's largest stocker/feeder cattle market. This unique area has western stores and restaurants. You can even see real cowboys at work!
