To see OKC’s energy in action, you don’t have to look any farther than the Midtown District, centered around Walker Avenue and 10th Street, near SSM Health St. Anthony Hospital, the city’s first hospital. Midtown connects the bustle of downtown with beautiful, historic neighborhoods to its north.
The area continues to develop for people who want to live, work and play in the heart of Oklahoma City, and features housing, retail, night life, hotels and history, with many of its original buildings being brought back to life. The heart of the district is Plaza Court, an 84-year old building that features restaurants, bars and a YMCA location.
One of the best ways to experience Midtown is during the Midtown Walkabout, which has just been extended to a month-long celebration. Midtown merchants will provide specials, discounts, and activities for attendees during their normal operating hours each Saturday in July. Attendees can also enjoy free pop-up programming such as live music, art demonstrations, and photo ops during designated hours of those Saturdays as they explore the district. It’s also the perfect opportunity for you to Stand Tall, Shop Small for OKC’s local (and beloved!) retailers.
