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 (if the Thunder is in town while we're there... the conference will definitely try to reserve a block of tickets!) 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.
