Oklahoma City


Oklahoma City in a nutshell

Over the past decade, Oklahoma City has seen unprecedented growth – the largest urban makeover in national history – with more than $2 billion invested in new development.

You can still stroll and shop along the streets of authentic Stockyards City or sit in on one of the largest weekly cattle auctions in the country. But just blocks away the clamoring of cattle is replaced with the clattering of silverware at dozens of trendy restaurants, and you can enjoy cocktails overlooking the skyline from the rooftop of Oklahoma City’s Museum of Art. Oklahoma City wanted the best. Now it’s here.

The Ford Center is Oklahoma’s state-of-the-art sports and entertainment venue. The nearly 20,000 seat arena hosts major concerts, family events, ice shows, the NBA’s Oklahoma City/New Orleans Hornets and other sporting events.

Adjacent to the Ford Center is the Myriad Botanical Gardens and Crystal Bridge Tropical Conservatory, seventeen acres of landscaped parkland. Enter a rain forest, visit a desert and explore waterfalls in the heart of downtown Oklahoma City.
