Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

This past weekend my family and I ventured to a place I honestly forgot existed. Located directly North of Texas, we're not even sure if its considered "southern" USA or "midwestern" because it could honestly be both.

I was truly pleasantly surprised with my first time in OKC, you could tell it was a newer city in America, and having only celebrated its centennial year in 2007, it was pleasantly underpopulated which makes it enjoyable to walk around and not have your personal space totally invaded!

Whenever I travel around I like to ask complete strangers what the best things are to do, this list was compiled by some people I talked to on the internet and the lady in the airport with the dog I sat down next to:
  • National Cowboy Museum
  • Stockyards-Cattleman Restaurant
  • Bricktown River Taxi
  • OKC Memorial 
  • Lake Heffner
  • Pops in Arcadia
  • Blue Garden
  • Bessler Hall
We checked off most of the list while we were there! On Thursday night we landed in time for dinner and checked out Cattlemans steakhouse in the stockyards. The food was amazing! and they gave you giant croutons as an appetizer, so that had my vote. We also met God and his friend Constance who were in town for their church meeting. It was wonderful. Anyways, the stockyards were my favorite place because it had the southern, cowboy feel to it.
