The capital city is on its way up in the urban arts and dining world—defined by a recent influx of hip bars, cutting-edge restaurants, breweries, shops, hotels and galleries—while still remaining a bastion of Old West culture and cowboy vibes. The city is also known as the hometown of the Oklahoma City Thunder and the “horse show capital of the world.” Spend enough time properly exploring the streets and soaking up the local sights, and OKC’s rustic charms will undoubtedly win you over. We’ll bet our money on that. Ladies and gentlemen, enjoy these really exciting things to do in Oklahoma City.
