Oklahoma City is home to the OKC Thunder and OKC Dodgers but it has much more to offer. Here’s a quick guide to OKC!
Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History
2401 Chautauqua Ave, Norman, OK 73072
The Sam Noble Natural History Museum showcases several historic creatures and also current species. This is an awesome place to take children to spend an afternoon walking among the ancient artifacts and fossils.
Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum
620 N. Harvey Ave. Oklahoma City, OK
The Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum was created to honor the victims, survivors, and rescue personnel from the bombing of the Oklahoma City Alfred Murrah Federal Building that occurred in 1995. The outdoor memorial is a tranquil place that displays The Gates of Time, The Reflecting Pool, and The Field of Empty Chairs.
Fuzzy’s Taco Shop
208 Johnny Bench Dr Suite C, Oklahoma City, OK 73104
If you’re in Oklahoma City’s hotspot, Bricktown, then you should definitely consider stopping by Fuzzy’s Taco Shop. They have a menu full of delicious Tex-Mex food. The place is kid-friendly. However, they have a small bar which makes this a nice place to go late night if you plan on going to an Oklahoma City Thunder basketball game.
Marble Slab Creamery
216 Johnny Bench Dr A, Oklahoma City, OK 73104
If you’re craving something sweet, the Marble Slab Creamery is the best place to go. They have a fun and wide variety of ice cream flavors to choose from. Not only do they have a wide variety of flavors, they also allow you to enjoy your ice cream in whatever combination you want with a yummy array of toppings. In my opinion, their waffle cones are the best way to enjoy their ice cream.
Wheeler Ferris Wheel
1701 S Western Ave, Oklahoma City, OK 73109
The Wheeler Ferris Wheel is one of those random oddities that you find in OKC. Located minutes from Bricktown, the Wheeler Ferris Wheel is a unique and laid-back spot that has food trucks, lawn games, hammocks, and of course the ferris wheel. If you want to step outside the ordinary, you should consider giving this place a visit.
1212 N Walker Ave #100, Oklahoma City, OK 73107
Don’t be surprised if you see a line stretched out the door at Waffle Champion. The upbeat atmosphere and of course waffles are enough to coax anyone in to this restaurant. The food is centered around waffles made several different ways. The waffles are made to order and the accompanying ingredients are nicely paired with the waffles. This is also a good brunch spot if you are craving midday mimosas.
Oklahoma City Zoo
2101 NE 50th St, Oklahoma City, OK 73111
We love visiting the local zoo when we travel. Visiting the OKC Zoo is a fun activity for families. The zoo has a simple layout. The cost of admission (without a membership) is worth it. The zoo grounds are well maintained and the staff is very friendly. Also the zoo has a few new additions to the family of animals.
I hope this guide helped you pick places to see and eat on your next stop in Oklahoma City!
