Travel Tips for Oklahoma City
In 1916 in the Heritage Hills district, William T. Hales constructed the most prominent residence in Oklahoma City. Listed on the National Register of Historic Sites, and prominent among a neighborhood of great mansions, the Renaissance Hales House now serves as the diocese of the Catholic church in Oklahoma City.
Bunch of Crackas
Many of my friends and family love the cracker barrel. It has a laid back, southern home feel that is apparent as you walk up to the white rocking chairs on the porch waiting area. It's usually busy all morning and has a constant flow of customers all day long.
I've eaten both meals and breakfast here and find it disappointing. The only thing I've really enjoyed is the grilled cheese. For breakfast I've tried the eggs (ok), sausage (no thanks), hash browns (too many onions), and bacon (too much fat). I've eaten better at Denny's or Ihop's.
Something unique, though, is that they have this country tee logic game at the tables while you wait. They usually have a big checkers game in the eating area, as well, for kids (and adults) to play while waiting for the food.
But I can't pass it down due to the store that is right inside the door. Of course you have to pass through it before getting to the food. They have great seasonal items, kids stuff, candles and clothing. I love it all...
Sunday through Thursday - 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
Friday & Saturday - 6:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.
Has RV/Bus Parking
Right next to a few hotels... I always get the grilled cheese. I'm not big on gravy, fried chicken, or breakfast.
National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum
If you've ever loved those paintings that were shown at the start of the old cowboy pictures or the sheer beauty of a Remington bronze then I strongly suggest that you take a good long look at this wonderful museum.
I spent over 2 hours wandering round the several galleries and exhibits and would have spent more time if my bus tour hadn't had to be on it's way.
Oh yes, and I don't usually like gift shops, but the Museum Store offers a great selection of prints of exhibits and replica bronzes & statuary.
Museum admission is a paltry $8.50 (adults) with exensive free parking.
Open 9 am to 5 pm (Closed Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day)
If you can't visit, the I urge you to check out their website which has images of a tiny part of their collections.

True Old World Interior
Mass is presented every weekday at noon at St Joseph's Cathedral, so visitors can stop by as early as 10:30 to see the reconstructed nave with its splendid ivory vaulting, and the renewed stained glass windows that line either side of the nave. Provided you do not interfere or distract the faithful who might have come to pray, you can discreetly move through the interior with a tripod.
Oklahoma has had a turbulent past. Originally thought to be dead country, the area was set aside as Indian Territory for Native Americans from across the US. In 1889 'white' settlement began, and a city of 10,000 grew up almost overnight. In 1928 oil was discovered in the state and the city became rich.
I only got a small taster of this city so I strongly suggest that you head over to the Oklahoma City page of mrclay2000 for a complete, resident's view of this wonderful town. He's number one for a reason.
