Travel to 'Oklahoma City' For A World Of Surprises

In the heart of Native America lies a city on the plains with lots of tourist attractions, wonderful restaurants, and nice hotels. That city is none other than 'Oklahoma City'. Surprises await all who venture upon this city. The truth of the matter is 'Oklahoma City' has changed greatly in the past decade. Being that it's the Oklahoma's Centennial year, I would recommend a visit to this wonderful city.
“Oklahoma City” is the capital of Oklahoma and its downtown has been transformed into a tourist attraction. Many people remember “Oklahoma City” as the place where Timothy McVey took revenge on the United States Government. “Oklahoma City” is more than that. Bricktown is the now popular tourist spot and the integral part of “Oklahoma City”. The Metropolitan Area Projects Plan was passes in 1993 which rose over $3000 million for downtown redevelopment. This redevelopment also included moving the North Canadian River to intersect the Bricktown’s water taxi. One will find in this hotbed of attractions many entertainment and dining venues.


Included in these venues are the Cox Business Services Convention Center and the Ford Center for all sorts of conventions, and sports entertainment. In 2007 both centers were the home of the women’s and men’s Big XII basketball tournament. The Southwestern Bell Bricktown Ballpark is home to the “Oklahoma City” Redhawks baseball team. The Oklahoma Spirit trolley system is in place, and will take you around Bricktown and into Downtown “Oklahoma City” for only a quarter. There are also several horse-drawn carriages available, and pedicabs (Bicycle-like cars).


The Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum is the monument to the victims of the Alfred P. Murrah Building bombing, and includes an interactive learning museum and outdoor memorial. This is in downtown, and many tourists want to see where Timothy McVey bombed the Federal building in “Oklahoma City”. This is a national monument, and is run by the National Park Service. The trolley makes a stop here so that you can go from Bricktown to the monument and back.


Bricktown’s water taxi follows the canal through Bricktown and around several of “Oklahoma City hotel”s and lots of restaurants. The river taxi also will take you by several art work sculptures. One of the most impressive is the sculptures of the Oklahoma Land Run. On the river taxi you’ll find a stop for the Bass Pro Shop and a lovely waterfall.


To stay overnight in “Oklahoma City” Bricktown would be the ideal spot. There are many reasonable restaurants and famous ones too. Such as Abuelo’s, Bricktown Brewey, Chelino’s, Coach’s at the ballpark, Earl’s Rib Palace, The Melting Pot, Mickey Mantle’s Saghettie Warehouse, and Toby Keith’s I Love this Bar & Grill. Earl’s Rib palace is owned by the private chef to Elvis Presley, Earl Johnson. “Oklahoma City” is a great dining experience and a place to visit all night long.


To spend the night in “Oklahoma City” and experience a wonderful time many “Oklahoma City Hotel”s are available. Many upscale hotels too. One of the best is the John Q. Hammons Renaissance Hotel, and the Sheraton. There are many others. One of the greatest hotels has a rich history, and has been newly refurbished—The Skirvin Hilton. The Skirvin Hotel opened its doors in 1911 just four years after statehood. It’s the historic social hub of “Oklahoma City”. This hotel sat boarded up for 20 years until its recent $55 million top-bottom renovation. The Skirvin is a romantic place, and many people are passionate about its history and it’s intertwined history of “Oklahoma City”.


Set yourself up for a wonder vacation and enjoy “Oklahoma City” and stay in one of the many “Oklahoma City hotel” in Bricktown. You’ll enjoy the dining and entertaining experience on a smaller scale. Grab your suitcases and come on down to the city—“Oklahoma City” that is and enjoy yourself. Bring your family along too, there is something for everyone.
