Things to Do in Oklahoma City


Author: Shane Wauhob

There is a never ending list of things to do in Oklahoma City. From theatre and arts to food and wine, there is so much to experience in this much sought after destination.

Movie fans can look forward to catch a flick at the Warren Theatre. It offers a great atmosphere with a splash of movie memorabilia, state-of-the-art sound system, and giant screens. But the real attraction is the balcony option available on two screens every week. It is open for adults 21 years or above, and the deal includes refreshments from the bar as well as meals even while the movie is going on.

If you wish to enjoy movies of artistic quality and arenít too keen on blockbusters, the Noble Theater should satisfy. Located within the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, you can watch some great movies that are just hard to come by. Short films, foreign films, classics, award nominees, are all shown here.

Shopping is always king size in Oklahoma City, with great malls around to offer that perfect ambience. Penn Square Mall in Pennsylvania Avenue on Northwest Expressway offers a feeling of expensive shopping though it isnít for the high heeled. Consisting of two levels and multiple wings, it features all your favorite stores and a food court.

The urban environment of Oklahoma City also caters enormously to nature and animal lovers chiefly through the spectacular Oklahoma State Zoo & Botanical Garden and the Myriad Botanical Gardens. The latter is a 17-acre facility featuring more than 1000 different species from six different continents. This is where you will spot really exotic plant life, breathtakingly beautiful and surreal landscapes, and tropical terrain. The main attractions are the Tropical Rain Forest Zone and Dry Tropical Zone.

These are only a few of the myriad things to do in Oklahoma City. There are also great hotels that give you the experience of perfect relaxation. They also arrange shuttle services to important locations in Oklahoma City. There is never a moment to spare!
