Downtown there is a very interesting concourse underneath the city which is fairly unique. Not a must see, but if you're in the area you should walk through it. If you go to the bombing memorial you're about 100 yards from an entrance. Just head for the nearest skyscraper.
Mexican Food Embassy
On a couple different occassions, when we were in downtown OKC, we have stopped in to a decent chain Mexican food restaurant called Abuelos. There are two locations in Oklahoma, one being in the middle of Bricktown, which is the most convenient for most people traveling here.
Abuelos is a great spot to have fajitas, and I personally enjoyed the steak and shrimp fajita dinner. I would also recommend their Fundido del Mar if you are looking for a smaller item, or to add an appetizer for the table. This is a Mexican Cheese fondue with shrimp and scallops.
I would also recommend their delicious enchilada selection. Shrimp, beef, chicken, cheese, spinach... all great.
The Oil Derrick
Oklahoma is the only state capitol with an oil derrick on its grounds - a fitting tribute to the important role that the state's vast petroleum deposits stimulatation of its economic growth. Not too many years ago, it continued to be a producing well. I don't know if that is still the case.
Recalled to Life
On the western side of the Oklahoma City National Memorial stands the prominent red-brick steeple of St Joseph's Cathedral. Before the bombing in 1995, this grand church was reputedly the most significant old-fashioned religious structure in Oklahoma City. Built in the first quarter of the 20th century and later listed on the national register for historic sites, the stained glass was unparalleled and the exterior exquisitely detailed. After the Murrah blast, which all but hollowed St Joseph's, the new construction lost a lot of its former distinction, but happily the Gothic steeple rises again.
Oklahoma, Here We Come!
My husband and I drove to the town of Yukon, Oklahoma (near Oklahoma City) to spend Thanksgiving with his cousin, Stef and her two "kids" Beau & Schotze.
We had a great time checking out life there, and trying to stay warm. Being from California, it seemed really cold to us there!
