Get down in downtown

By Kaylee McDaniel / Lifestyle / June 23, 2020

With entertainment, arts, sporting events and nightlife all in your backyard, it is no surprise that downtown Oklahoma City is booming. Downtown OKC’s core, commonly called the Central Business District, welcomes thousands of employees every day to the buildings that make up the OKC skyline. By night (and weekend), the Central Business District is home to events at the Chesapeake Energy Arena, Cox Convention Center and Oklahoma City Civic Center Music Hall. If green space is your idea for a good time, be sure to explore Myriad Botanical Gardens and the nearby Scissortail Park to get your fill of flora and fauna.

Adjacent to downtown Oklahoma City is one of the most well-known entertainment districts in the Southwest – Bricktown. With its large concentration of high-energy night clubs, casual lounges and restaurants covering a multitude of culinary cultures, Bricktown has something for every taste. And, when you factor in its picturesque setting, which embraces a mile-long canal lined with eateries, clubs, a movie theater, a bowling lounge, the Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark and beautifully landscaped gardens and public art, you'll discover something the whole family can enjoy! Vibrant melodies can be heard coming from the American Banjo Museum and the Academy of Contemporary Music. Take a Bricktown Water Taxi cruise along the canal and discover the history of this energetic district. And while the weather is warm, be sure to hail a pedicab or one of several horse-drawn carriages that can be seen ferrying customers all over Bricktown. It's the perfect place for you to choose your own adventure.
