If you love the Oklahoma City life but occasionally want to get away from it, there are places to escape while staying close by.
But you can also enjoy:
- Spectacular views of the sunset at Lake Hefner, or biking, roller-blading, skateboarding, walking or strolling along its Hefner Trails that circle the lake.
- More than 2,000 plants and a 35-foot waterfall that make visitors feel they’re at a tropical getaway inside the 244-foot-long Crystal Bridge Tropical Conservatory at the Myriad Botanical Gardens.
- Fishing at any number of Oklahoma City’s parks, ponds, lakes and rivers.
- And, a little farther away, the views, trails and wildlife at Arcadia Lake, located on the Deep Fork River, east of Edmond.
