Visit Remington Park, North on I-35 to N.E.50th and turn left. If you love to gamble, the horses are running. Also, it is next to Lincoln Park Zoo. Firemen's Museum, Softball Hall of fame and close to Cowboy Hall of Fame which is North on MLK to 63rd and turn left.
Fondest memory: Classen High School and their museum 17th & Classen, the world's largest alumni membership association.
I think I like the Crystal Bridge and Myrid Gardens best of all the fun places in OKC. The grounds are pretty and the wide rance of plants of all kinds are amazing. The building is one you will remember. It looks like a big cylinder on it's side. It's easy to find and get to also, right downtown.
Fondest memory: If you are luicky you might get there for a special event like the Oklahoma State Fair or a big OU football game. Other great events are Red Earth, a huge Native American Expo, or Opening Night on New Years Eve. If you get the chance go see a Rodeo. The Festival of the Arts is a great time to see some of the greatest art1st of the southwest showing off their work.
Favorite thing: Sapulpa ( Population ca. 21000 ) has five shopping centers with restaurants, retail shops, physicians, beauty shops, pharmacies, video stores, grocery stores, automobile supplies and more. Several discount stores are located in the city. The unique, historical downtown has a variety of retail and speciality shops. Martha's Corner, a public park, offers a relaxing atmosphere for rest stops. Sapulpa merchants strive hard to offer quality servive, many provide ' special orders ' for local shoppers.
Favorite thing: EDMOND'S site was originally explored by Washington Irving in 1832 and described in his publication, ' A tour on the prairies. ' So began a tradition that lives to this day of a driving desire to be first, a desire for excellence.
We have a great zoo! Well landscaped, lot's of animals that are kind of unusual, and if you belong to a zoo elsewhere your admission will probably be free.
Fondest memory: The Wichita Wildlife refuge is about 90 minutes from here and my wife flew two of my best friends in for my 30th B-day. We hiked and checked out the buffalo herds and did a little bit of climbing on a perfect sunny summer day.
'Bricktown' ( http://www.okclive.com/bricktown/ )is really coming along. An old warehouse district that has been/is being converted into a trendy/touristy man-made riverwalk; complete with a rainbow of restaurants & clubs ranging from college-techno-dance, to live bluegrass, mariachi, top-40, rock, & reggae. The site of the Murrah building bombing is also a big attraction.
Fondest memory: I got kicked out of the Myriad Gardens/Water Stage after closing, once. It was pretty cool up until that point.
Favorite thing: If you do decide to stick it out and sit thru a game,the best seats in the house are out in left field.... (Its out of the rain, and close to the drinks....)
Favorite thing: In Oklahoma, many closed portions of the old road may be traveled along the frontage of the new highway. Near Bristow, Oklahoma.
