Oklahoma is where “the wind comes sweeping down the plain,” but there’s much more to the Sooner State’s capital, Oklahoma City, that’s sweeping the area by storm. The foodie culture is red-hot here, with everything from outdoor cafes to haute cuisine dining at Vast, located at the top of the state’s tallest building, the Devon Energy Center. Eclectic fare is easy to find, from vegan to Vietnamese, Brazilian, and Ethiopian cuisines, and juicy steaks at the historic Stockyards district. Oklahoma City boasts magnificent architecture with some of the finest examples of Art Deco, made popular during the 1920s when this burgeoning new city was built at a dizzyingly rapid pace. Retro mid-century modern structures also abound, with banks, office buildings, churches, and homes with the The Jetsons-era design. If you find yourself subconsciously humming The Jetsons theme song while driving around Oklahoma City, this is why. There’s nightlife and music to be sampled every night in trendy Bricktown (why just wait for the weekend?), including roots, jazz, rock, folk, Scottish, and bluegrass; you name it, we have it. And there are some wildly talented local musicians to boot. Oklahomans are passionate about sports. “Thunder Up” the Oklahoma City Thunder basketball team at the Chesapeake Energy Arena. Watch out for “Bedlam,” the age-old football rivalry between the University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University, both of the Big 12 Conference. There’s also hidden Oklahoma . . . out-of-the-way places, insider tips, historic Route 66, and more. From horseracing at Remington Park, to the Red Earth Native American Cultural Festival, to world-class art at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, there are an abundance of things to experience. Whether you're here for just a weekend, or the moving van just arrived in the driveway, or you've lived here all your life, this engaging and entertaining guide offers 100 things to choose from and experience in Oklahoma City.
