Oklahoma City or Bust!
We usually try to get to OKC at least once every three to four months. Whether for Affair of the Heart or for the fabulous OKC Zoo this town has it all! We usually try to stay on the South Side, because of the Bricktown attractions, but we have stayed on the North Side, in the Quail Springs neighborhood, as well as Midtown. OKC makes a great weekend trip, or a week long trip. We haven't done Frontier City with Rylee yet, but Rissy and I have been there, and found it to be a welcome relief from the overcrowding of the Metroplex area parks. Orr Family Farms is also amazing, with pony rides, a petting zoo, and a train that Rylee absolutely adores. There is a pumpkin patch in the fall, and tons of area to run and play.
Bricktown has its very own Bass Pro Shops for the outdoorsman in us all, as well as Rocktown Gym where kiddos (alot older than Rylee) and adults alike can climb using harnesses and belays to the top of an old grain silo. I've not been inside, but I hear it is an amazing place to go. I hope I get to in the near future. If you travel with your dogs, the Embassy Suites is extremely pet friendly. We've stayed there many times, including a time when two bassetts were braying at each other from the eighth floor to the first. What a treat.
Like I said, we LOVE OKC and I think you will too. If you go visit, I hope you make as many wonderful memories as we have.
