30 Things To Do In Oklahoma

Y'all, I love my state. I know so many people who just "couldn't wait to get out of here." Me on the other hand, I'd be content with staying here the rest of my life. I could totally live in a big city, don't get me wrong, but there's just something about living where the sky is open & the traffic isn't always crazy-hectic. Oklahoma is my home. You should come visit it sometime. If you're ever in our neck of the woods, here are some things you should do!

1. Go to a Thunder basketball game.

2. You MUST eat Mexican food-- here are my favorites: Tarahumara's // Alfredo's // La Luna

3. Visit the Oklahoma City National Memorial.

4. Eat at Vast on one of the top floors of the Devon Tower (we're pretty proud of our tallest building in the city).

5. Go to the Oklahoma Aquarium.

6. If you're here during Christmas time, go to the Chickasha Festival of Light.

7. Visit my favorite coffee shop of all time, Cafe Bella... Tell them Sarah sent you!

8. Try out Top Golf.

9. Take a stroll through the Turner Falls area.

10. Go to the Oklahoma City Zoo.

11. Eat a cupcake & drink some coffee at Cuppies & Joe.

12. Go to an OU or OSU football game (but you should definitely read this post before you go).

13. Visit the Paseo Arts District in OKC & eat at one of my favorite restaurants, Paseo Grill.

14. During the time of year that the Oklahoma State Fair rolls around, check it out. There's always some great people-watching out there.

15. Always check to see what's going on downtown at the Myriad Gardens!

16. If you're into hiking, head to the Arbuckle Mountains.

17. Take a stroll down Route 66 & go to Pops.

18. Eat at Irma's Burger Shack.

19. Go to the Outlet Shoppes at Oklahoma City if you love to drop some money.

20. If you're into running, sign up for the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon, The Color Run or Color Me Rad.

21. Need a little hotel/spa getaway? Check out the Artesian Hotel located in Sulfur.

22. Check out The Escape OKC if you're into solving puzzles, mysteries & working together as a team.

23. Take a tour of the Oklahoma State Capitol (I took my bridal pictures here!).

24. If you have kiddos (or even if you're a kid at heart), you should definitely check out the Jasmine Moran Children's Museum.

25. Visit the Great Salt Plains where you can dig for hourglass selenite crystals from April 1-October 15.

26. Float down the Illinois River.

27. Go to the nearest Braum's & get some ice cream. You won't be disappointed.

28. Check out the Oklahoma City Boathouse District-- there's a lot going on in that area, including the construction of our future Whitewater rafting area!

29. If you're here during the months of September-November, get lost in the largest corn maize in Oklahoma (Reding Farm) located in Chickasha.

30. Eat at Victoria's Pasta Shop for some great Italian food.

That's my list of 30 things to do in Oklahoma. Do you have anything else to add to my list? What are your favorite things to do in Oklahoma?
