You MUST have a car to get around OKC. Just like Texas...things are spread out. Unless you're just going on business at the convention center and walking across the street to your room, you NEED a car to see the fun things in Oklahoma City!
Although it was the middle of the wintertime in Oklahoma City, I was intrigued by one of the newest transportation options, the Bricktown Water Taxi.
This floating transportation option docks across from Bricktown Ballpark, and takes a scenic 40 minute tour around the Bricktown area, including the Marriott and Bass Pro Shop, as well as some of the other dining locations such as Earl's Rib Palace and Toby Keith's.
I did not get the chance to ride this taxi as it was not open on the day I went, but in the summer time, this would be a great little ride.
All day passes are $7.50 for adults, and $1 for children under 5.
