Parking for Amtrak

by oldcoot

I will be catching the Amtrak in June and need to leave my car in a safe place for about a week. The OKC convention bureau suggest at the Cox convention center, but the map looks confusing. How far is it to walk from parking at the convention center to the Amtrak station and would it be safe at night when I return? Thanks for the advice.

Re: Parking for Amtrak

Did they suggest underground at Cox or at a surface lot?

The Amtrak station is on the road that runs down the east side of the convention center. There is an entrance to the underground garage on that side, so it's not at all a far walk. I think that there are surface lots on the other side of the convention center, so that's why I asked.

This area is just across the tracks from the Bricktown area, where there is the minor league baseball park and many restaurants. At night, there is not a lot of pedestrian traffic on the road in front of the Amtrak station, but there are plenty of people nearby either at the hotels north of the convention center or across the rail line in Bricktown. The rail line is elevated, so you'd have to walk through an underpass to get to Bricktown, so you'll feel sort of isolated from it, but it's not far away in terms of steps.

My question would be what are the hours of the underground parking at the convention center? Would there be a cashier on duty to let you out?

Thanks for the tips. I will check on the times for access. What are decent (not overpriced) hotels near there?

Re: Parking for Amtrak

I don't know what is overpriced to you, but I have stayed at the Renaissance Oklahoma City Convention Center Hotel which is immediately north (across the street) from the Convention Center. It's not cheap, which is what you would expect from an upscale business hotel next to the convention center; but for convention attendees, it couldn't be more convenient.

Otherwise, in Oklahoma City, we stay 5 miles north of downtown at the Waterford Marriott Hotel. It is in the middle of a very high end residential neighborhood, and happens to be near a quilt store that my wife likes. But it is also not cheap (although cheaper than the downtown hotel), and may be much nicer than you require...


Travel Tips for Oklahoma City

Famous OKCers: Mickey Mantle

by ATXtraveler

Mickey Mantle is one of the favorite hometown heroes of Oklahoma City, having grown up here, and going on to play a fairly long professional career with one of the most famous Baseball teams ever, the New York Yankees. Mickey was born in Spavinaw, OK and lived most of his childhood life in Commerce, OK. He also briefly attended the University of Oklahoma in nearby Norman until he began playing baseball professionally.

There are many different memorials to Mickey, including the main street in the Bricktown District, and a statue of him outside the Bricktown Ballpark.

St Paul's Rebirth

by mrclay2000

A full third of the sanctuary was literally ripped away in the 1995 bombing. Images of the damage and reconstruction are on display in the church offices a little rightward of the main southern entrance. Today, after federal funding and determined reconstruction, the altar and the stained glass have been repaired or replaced, and once more the large wooden beams support the ceiling of the sanctuary.

Bricktown Brewery

by Paulie_D about Bricktown Brewery

I did not eat here as I had only popped in for a beverage or two. I regret this, only because if I had known more about the place, I would have spent my time here rather than at Hooters. The 'visuals' may not be as good, but I have a feeling I miised out by not giving the Brewery more time.

A renovated warehouse, they is plenty of wood panelling & wooden booths or tables for seating.

I did examine the menu and it's standard brewhouse fare although they did offer a range of barbeque foods.

I understand that they offer live entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights. They also have billiard tables, big screen TVs and video games.

Overall, I give my visit a 'Satisfied' but I think I would have marked it higher if I had visited longer or in the evening.

It's on my 'Must Go Back' list Of the beers on offer, I tried the 'Land Run' lager which was excellent

Oklahoma History Center

by BixB

The Oklahoma History Center is a definite must for anyone curious about the Sooner state. The Smithsonian Institute affiliated museum opened in November 2005 in a striking new 215,000 square-foot building across the street from the Oklahoma Capitol. In fact, a three-story high curved glass wall in the building’s grand entry hall provides a truly astounding view of the Capitol building.

Arranged in several major galleries across two floors, the museum encompasses more than 50 topics, with over 2,000 artifacts. Topics include Native American cultures, exploration, the development of transportation and important industries, the unique ways in which the state was settled, growth and societal changes in rural and urban areas, entertainment, broadcasting, and sports, and many others.

The quality of the artifacts and the methods of display are first-rate. Particularly notable are the walk through replicas of a 1950's kitchen and a Depression-era farmhouse (with FDR on the radio and dust-bowl dirt on the windowsills); Indian moccasins displayed "underfoot" in a recreated Oklahoma landscape; and a 1920's African-American barber shop and a 1960's Woolworth's lunch counter - with "Whites Only" and separate "Colored" drinking fountains nearby. Be sure to watch the video on tornados in the Noble Foundation gallery. Several interesting items are also outside on the museum grounds.

The Center is open 9:00-5:00, Monday - Saturday, and 12:00-5:00 on Sunday. Closed New Years, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Admission is $5.00/adults, $4.00/seniors, $3.00/students and Smithsonian Institute members. Children under 5 are free.

A Place for Reflection

by mrclay2000

The reflecting pool divides the two Gates of Time, which "frame the moment of destruction" of 9:02 a.m. The east gate reads "9:01," signifying the last moment of innocence as we pursued our regular lives. The west gate is marked "9:03," when our lives changed forever. In the background (also reflected in the pool) is the Regency Tower.
