About Oklahoma City

Western charm goes metropolitan in Oklahoma's capital city. Oklahoma City offers plenty of interesting things to do and boasts big-league attractions, including the OKC Thunder NBA team (be sure to purchase your tickets for the unofficial social outing to the Thunder game on Wednesday, March 4!)  and a revitalized downtown area starring the Bricktown Entertainment District, Chesapeake Energy Arena and top-notch museums, including the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum and the Oklahoma City Museum of Art. Rope up some fun at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum and other Adventure District destinations. Learn Oklahoma's story at the Oklahoma State Capitol and nearby History Center. Go kid-friendly at the OKC Zoo, Science Museum Oklahoma, Frontier City and White Water Bay, and escape to the outdoors at the Oklahoma River, Myriad Botanical Gardens and Lake Hefner.



Oklahoma City offers a thriving nightlife scene with concentrations of popular spots for music, dancing and drinks in the Bricktown Entertainment District, the Paseo Arts District, and Western Avenue area. The arts abound and culture flourishes with options such as the Oklahoma City Philharmonic Orchestra, the Oklahoma City Ballet, vibrant art districts and plentiful galleries, a diverse music scene that produces national stars in multiple genres, bountiful drama productions and an acclaimed arts festival that draws nearly 1 million visitors each year.

The GIS/CAMA 2015 conference committee met in OKC in late September. What a friendly and walkable city! There is an abundance of dining and entertainment options just a block from the Renaissance Hotel, in Bricktown, and a canal that rivals the San Antonio Riverwalk. You'll love it!
