OK City Oklahoma???

Hi all...is there anything of interest to see or do on OK city?

We will be making a trip there in near future to visit the Laser Spine Institute for wife's back. Not 1 single local "specialist", "doctor" etc etc has been able to find a thing wrong with her, but the Laser Spine Institute claims they see her problem on the submitted medical records.

They need us for 5 days.....so toying with taking the coach for the trip

If they can do as they claim....it will certainly be nice to have wife back to doing this.... after 4+ LONG years

thanks!!

Hi.

We were just there for a few days. Some of the interests we saw are, Thunderbird state park, Moore Ok, an Airforce museum, and the Oklahoma City memorial.

Happy trails

When we visited Oklahoma City, 2005, I noticed there were about 12 billion birds sitting on all the power wires.

It was in the fall and I learned that it is in the migratory path for birds.

Other than that I don't remember much except for I40 was in terrible condition.

Good luck with the back problem....that can be miserable.

As long as you're seeing doctors, up over to the Oklahoma Heart Hospital and get a heart CT scan. its only $50 . I don't even think an appointment is necessary.

Check out Bricktown!

Oklahoma City Bricktown - Welcome to Bricktown OKC web site

Great placed to eat and some nice entertainment too.

On a more somber but important note, visit the OKC Memorial

Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum – Official Website

Don't miss Bricktown, lots always going on there. The National Cowboy Hall of Fame, Remington Park horse racing ( in season). If you are interested in dinosaur bones, a wonderful collection at OU in Norman. Nice Zoo, and the Kilpatrick science, aviation, center. 45 th a infantry museum, lots of neat WWII things. The Firefighters museum, and the national softball museum. West side of town is a large new factory outlet mall ( for her :-) ). The big glass tube downtown, called Myriad Gardens is a tropical garden. Dinner cruise on the river. Sailing on Lake Hefner, Lake Thunderbird east of Norman boating, fishing, etc. and lots of Indian casino's of all sizes in the area.

Definitely go to the Oklahoma City memorial, preferably at night for the most impressive effect. Then tour the museum in the daytime. The National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum is also a must. They have an extensive collection of Russell's as well as many other interesting exhibits of the old west. A visit to downtown with one of the tallest buildings west of the Mississippi and lunch at the restaurant at the top is in order also. You can take two boat rides, one on the Oklahoma River that passes through several locks between downtown and the western areas of the city and the second a boat ride in Brick town (basically east of downtown but barely) that is similar to the riverwalk in SanAntonio. If it is in the summer there is a very nice triple A baseball park in brick town with lots of games going on. The Bricktown area is home to several very good resturants (Mickey Mantle's Steakhouse, Toby Kieth's "I Love this bar and grill" and the soon to be openned steak house owned by Kevin Durant.) There is a huge Bass Pro Shopes store there as well as a multi-screen theater. There are also a number of very good Mexican food restaurants and several local craft micro breweries. Oklahoma City is home to some of the largest oil companies in the world with downtown headquarters for Devon, Sandridge and Continental Resources for example and Chesapeake Oil has a beautiful university like campus of over 60 acres in the northeast part of the city. Currently the American Quarter Horse Youth Association World show is going on at the state fairgrounds in the western part of the city and many weeks there will be a national or international horse show going on there. The national Olympic trials in rowing take place at the rowing venue just south of Bricktown on the Oklahoma river and you can find many university and club teams from all over the United states practicing and participating in meets all summer and fall near the world class Devon Energy Boat House on the river. There are many large shopping centers scattered around town and a large, new discount mall on I-40 in the Western part of town. This is just a few of the many activities and sites available in Oklahoma City. You will find many more, depending on your interests. You should have no trouble finding enough to occupy your time in OKC. Welcome to Oklahoma and if we can help in any way just drop me a pm. Gene

Oklahoma has made great strides in upgrading their infrastructure over the last few years. I have been though OK several times recently. I love that they have nice rest areas, that even have free dump stations. That is not something you find everywhere at all.

Even I-40 has had a lot of work done on it since 2005.

You didn't ask about a place to park, but if you take the coach I have stayed in this park twice and love it. Not best neighborhood to the East, but a very well kept park with easy access to the interstate.

Good luck with resolving your wife's back issues!
