OKC districts 101

Plaza District

You don’t have to read our blog very long to figure out local districts are a big deal in Oklahoma City. Whether you are getting funky in the Plaza, living it up in Bricktown or getting adventurous in the Adventure District there is a corner of the city that is perfect for you.

We will be the first to admit that getting to know the districts in OKC can be a little overwhelming for newcomers. Getting to know your Midtowns from your Uptowns might take some time. Luckily that is why we are here. Over the next month or so we will be giving you in-depth looks at each district. Until then here is a quick snapshot of each district:

  • Adventure District- the most aptly named district in OKC, home to the Oklahoma City Zoo, Remington Park, Science Museum Oklahoma, National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum and more.
  • Asian District- a vibrant enclave of Asian culture in the heart of OKC. You’ll find some of the best Asian food in the region here.
  • Automobile Alley- Just north of Downtown, this district used to be the primary location of the city’s car dealerships. Today it is home to local dining and shopping.
  • Boathouse District- home to future Olympians, this district features stunning architecture and is an outdoorsmen’s dream.
  • Bricktown- this former warehouse area is OKC’s prime entertainment district.
  • Classen Curve- located in NW OKC this district features great shopping and dining.
  • Deep Deuce- the center of urban living in OKC.
  • Film Row- what was once home to the film distribution industry for the region is now one of the metro’s quickest developing districts.
  • Midtown- the perfect mix of local retail and historic homes.
  • Paseo Arts District- eclectic art and great restaurants are the name of the game for this district.
  • Plaza District- the epicenter of funky local retail in OKC.
  • Stockyards City- this district is a blast to the past and pays homage to the metro’s western heritage.
  • Western Avenue- an eclectic mix of local restaurants and bars, retail shops and boutiques, antique and furniture stores and fine art galleries make up Western.
  • Uptown 23rd- anchored by the historic Tower Theater, you'll find great locally-owned restaurants and bars, as well as fun boutiques

Must-visit destinations

Pops on Route 66

“I had no idea!” If we had a nickel for every time we heard that phrase from a first-time visitor to the 4-0-5, we would be able to pay Russ’ contract. Visitors are always surprised about the metro’s combination of art, history, entertainment, food and nightlife and more. Here are some must-visit places in America’s best-kept secret in tourism (in our biased opinions):

Route 66
Oklahoma contains more of the historic Route 66 than any other state. While you journey across this iconic route, you’re welcome to make a quick stop for the Route 66 Museum, Totem Pole Park, the Blue Whale of Catoosa, and no trek through Route 66 is complete without a stop (and a soda) at POPS!

The Oklahoma City National Memorial
April 19, 1995 changed our city and country forever. Today, a one-of-a-kind memorial and  museum about that tragic morning stand atop the bombing site. The reflecting pond and empty chairs that represent the lives lost on that fateful morning are deeply ingrained into the hearts and minds of all who see it.

The OKCMOA
The Oklahoma City Museum of Art is the largest art museum in Oklahoma. It features a wide array of art, including (but not limited to) sizable galleries full of European art, American art, contemporary art, and an iconic collection of Dale Chihuly’s glasswork. There’s also an exhibition gallery space that features new and wildly popular exhibitions every few months. The Museum also has its own movie theater, where it hosts special screenings and events almost every day.

The Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden
The Oklahoma City Zoo is considered a staple for both locals’ “let’s make a regular visit” lists and Oklahoma City’s visitor economy. With nearly 2,000 animals, aquatic life, reptiles, insects and plants the public can admire, it’s a very popular attraction for all ages.

National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum
There is perhaps nothing more inherently Oklahoman than images of the Wild West. The National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum is dedicated to preserving the history of American Indians and cowboys that lived in Oklahoma throughout history with art, firearms, outfits and more.

Oklahoma History Center
Oklahoma’s rich history is preserved for all generations to see at the Oklahoma History Center. Featuring a vast collection of items tied to Oklahoma’s early history, the Oklahoma History Center isn’t a stop you want to overlook.

Stockyards City
For the quintessential Oklahoma cowboy experience, Stockyards City is a must see. Stockyards City is the largest feeder and cattle market in the world, which features architecture and shops designed to give you an authentic ranch experience. It’s also home of Oklahoma’s most famous restaurant, Cattlemen’s Steakhouse, which has been featured on Food Network’s Man vs Food and Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.

Science Museum Oklahoma
With more than 350,000 square feet chock-full of hands-on science and experimentation, the Science Museum of Oklahoma is another one of the most popular and beloved tourist attractions Oklahoma City has to offer.

Stockyards City

Stockyards City

If you’ve read the blog before, you know we are guilty of bragging about the momentum and future of Oklahoma City from time to time. That might be true, but it doesn’t mean we don’t also like to embrace our past and heritage. Stockyards City is a place where that heritage comes alive.

The district was home to one of Oklahoma City’s first major industries, with a rush of meat processors and packing plants, and was known affectionately here as Packingtown. When the original plant closed in 1961, a cattle auction was added to secure the district’s future. The Oklahoma National Stockyards, the world’s largest stocker and feeder cattle market, is open to visitors so you can experience the action firsthand every Monday and Tuesday.

If you have cowboy needs (even of the urban cowboy variety), Stockyards City is the place to be as some of the businesses date back to the early 1900s. Boot and hat repair, western wear and even the Rodeo Opry make up the district.

Of course, talking about the district wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the world-famous Cattlemen’s Steakhouse. The steakhouse opened in 1910 and has been serving hungry ranchers and cattlemen ever since. Heck, if it is good enough for John Wayne and a sitting president, you might want to give it a try.

Lasso up some fun

Stockyards City entrance

There’s no better place to experience a piece of Oklahoma City’s past than Stockyards City. This district is a living testament to one of Oklahoma City’s first major industries, packing plants, and the cattle trade that accompanied it. When the original plant closed in 1961, a cattle auction was added to secure the district’s future. Today, that auction operates as the Oklahoma National Stockyards, and it is the world’s largest stocker and feeder cattle market. (You can see it in action on Mondays and Tuesdays starting at 8 a.m.)

The original business district is still intact, housing stores that can meet all your western wear and gear needs. Once you work up an appetite, a trip to Cattlemen’s Steakhouse is in order. This OKC staple has been feeding hungry cowboys and ranchers since 1910 and has welcomed John Wayne, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and Charles Barkley, to name a few.

Greetings from Stockyards City

Stockyards City

Cowboy culture is alive and well in Oklahoma City, and you can experience it for yourself at Stockyards City, just a few miles southeast of downtown OKC. Stockyards City is home to the Oklahoma National Stockyards – the world’s largest stocker and feeder cattle market. Originally called “Packingtown,” the area was developed as a meat processing and packing plant in 1910, and by 1915 the area was home to cowboys and cattle drives.

The meat packing plant closed in 1961 and was replaced by a cattle auction, which has seen more than 102 million head of livestock pass through its iron gates since opening. Today, you can experience a live action on Mondays and Tuesdays of each week starting at 8 a.m.

The original business district of the area is still intact, making it the perfect place to buy gear for your homestead (or just a pair of boots for two-stepping). Several businesses date back to the early 1900s and still provide authentic Western wear and gear to the cattle buyers and ranch hands that come to Stockyards City each week.

What are we thankful for? Local Districts

Louie\\\'s in Midtown

Partying in the Plaza and Paseo. Singing in the Stockyards. Boogieing in Bricktown. You get the picture, in Oklahoma City we love our local districts. Ask a random stranger walking down the street and they will probably agree with us, local districts are something we should definitely be thankful for in OKC.

The local districts have done a great job of carving out unique niches with eyes towards the future while celebrating their history. Food, shopping, music and fun are great ways to sum up these Oklahoma City hotspots.

Saddle up for Stockyards City

OKC Stockyards

Cowboy culture is alive and well in Oklahoma City, and you can experience it for yourself at Stockyards City, just a few miles southeast of downtown OKC. Stockyards City is home to the Oklahoma National Stockyards – the world’s largest stocker and feeder cattle market. Originally called “Packingtown,” the area was developed as a meat processing and packing plant in 1910, and by 1915 the area was home to cowboys and cattle drives.

Grub that a cowboy would love

Historical Cattlemen\\\\\\\'s Cafe

While you are exploring Oklahoma City’s rough-and-tumble past, you are likely to rustle up an appetite. Lucky for you, Cattlemen’s Steakhouse in the heart of Stockyards City is home to some of the world’s best cowboy grub around.

Cattlemen’s is an Oklahoma City staple with a history as rich as its decadent homemade desserts. It opened its doors in 1910 and served the cowpokes who came through during cattle drives. Cattlemen’s was notorious as one of the few places that stayed open after sundown, and during Prohibition it was very popular for its less-than-legal liquid libations.

The restaurant is still very popular today, albeit for different reasons. Cattlemen’s is the perfect place to go for a USDA prime grade of steak, aged by a closely-guarded secret recipe. And when you eat at Cattlemen’s, you will be in good company. The restaurant has been graced by sitting presidents (former Pres. George H.W. Bush), movie legends (John Wayne) and sports commentators (Charles Barkley).

Share the story of OKC

We love to show off our city to out-of-town guests and there’s no better time than the holidays. Once you finish your holiday feast, head out to explore some of the exciting activities in the city.

  • Treat the whole family to an unforgettable experience at the Myriad Botanical Gardens & Crystal Bridge Tropical Conservatory.  We love the tranquil setting and the out-of-this-world playground area, but our favorite activity during the holidays has to be the ice-skating rink. Hours for the ice rink have been extended throughout the holiday season.     
  • Science Museum Oklahoma, one of our favorite destinations for family fun, houses so many hands-on science experiments that we have a hard time choosing where to start. From the Tinkering Garage and Gadget Trees to daily shows in the planetarium and dome theater, the museum allows your inner child to run wild.
  • We love to share the history of our great state, and the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum is the perfect locale to take an inside peek at the spirit, passion and grit symbolized by the American West. There are exhibits for the tikes, too, including the Chuckwagon and Prosperity Junction.
  • Come on, the wild is calling! Did you know the Oklahoma City Zoo & Botanical Gardens ranks among the top three family-friendly zoos in the nation? If you haven’t visited in a while, check it out. 2014 has been an exciting year as the zoo celebrated 110 years. 2015 is sure to be just as exciting as with the expected arrival of a baby elephant before the end of the year.
  • The 45th Infantry Division Museum, the nation’s largest state-operated military history museum, offers an inside glance at Oklahoma’s military history. Stroll through Thunderbird Park to see more than 60 types of equipment, including tanks, artillery, personnel carriers and aircraft.
  • Boot-scoot over to Oklahoma City’s Historic Stockyards City, one of the largest livestock markets in the world, to immerse yourself in authentic cowboy culture. This unique district offers a glimpse into Oklahoma’s cowboy scene. Satisfy your hunger at Cattlemen’s Steakhouse, then head over to catch a live show at the Centennial Rodeo Opry.
  • Enter the Oklahoma History Center and let the fascinating lives of Oklahoma oil barons, pioneers, American Indians and Oklahoma’s famous citizens bring the past to life. From the mighty Land Run to nostalgic Route 66 lore and from the stirring Civil War to high-flying airplanes, there’s something for everyone at the Oklahoma History Center.
  • OKC 125: A Photography Exhibition provides an interesting perspective on downtown Oklahoma City. The exhibit features works by 125 individuals who captured their favorite downtown sites in 125 minutes.

An Ode to the Oldies

Oklahoma City is relatively new in comparison to some other states and certainly other parts of the world, but that doesn’t mean we lack history. Here’s a quick look at some of places in Greater Oklahoma City that claim the title of “oldest” in their given category.

How the West Was Fun

With more than 100 years of history under its belt, there is no better place to go experience Oklahoma City’s rough-and-tumble past than Stockyards City. Located just southwest of downtown, Stockyards City is home to the Oklahoma National Stock Yards—the world’s largest stocker and feeder cattle market.  Originally called “Packingtown,” the area was developed as a meat processing and packing plant in 1910, and by 1915 the area was booming with cowboys and cattle drives.

By 1961, the packing plant closed and was replaced by a cattle auction. More than 102 million head of livestock have passed through the iron gates of the Stockyards since that time, and the auction is still in operation today.

Even though the days of the cattle drive are over, the area still serves up its unique Western heritage to cattlemen and greenhorns alike. The original business district is intact and still sells its wares to Oklahoma’s farmers and ranchers, and many of the area’s stores and restaurants are among OKC’s oldest establishments. Stop in at Cattlemen’s Steakhouse for food that has won the approval of everyone from U.S. presidents to Sir Charles Barkley since 1910, and rustle up some authentic cowboy gear at Langston’s Western Wear, which was established in 1916.

Lasso Up Some Cowboy Gear

All this information about cowboy cultures means you can talk the talk, but can you walk the walk? Don’t leave Stockyards City without lassoing some authentic cowboy gear.

Visit Shorty’s Hattery for a custom made and stock Western-style cowboy hats that have been worn by rodeo winners and country music stars. The store’s owner, Lavonna “Shorty” Koger is well-steeped in the tradition of the Western cowboy, and she keeps that tradition alive through custom hats made with the highest quality materials.

Langston’s Western Wear is the oldest store of its kind in Oklahoma, and it has become a national leader in Western fashion. Its flagship location in Stockyards City recently underwent an award-winning restoration and they carry over 15,000 pairs of boots and 40,000 pairs of jeans—so you are sure to find just the style for you.

A cowboy’s life might contain a little more dirt and mud than most, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be refined. Cross Bar Gallery specializes in high-end western furniture, art and home décor. Its furniture is all made in the U.S.A. and the gallery offers the largest selection of western artwork in Oklahoma City.

Wild, Wild West

Born from the single gunshot that launched the historic Land Run of 1889, Oklahoma City’s history and heritage is uniquely Western. And the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum is the ideal place to experience the legacy of the American West. With more than 28,000 Western and American Indian art works and artifacts, it’s home to one of the most comprehensive collections of Western art in the world. The museum is a can’t-miss destination with fine art, pop culture, Native American objects, historical cowboy gear, an amazing gift shop and tasty dining.

You should also check out ... historic Stockyards City where you can pick up some Western wear of your own, enjoy one of OKC’s most famous restaurants – Cattlemen’s Steakhouse – and see a live cattle auction.

... the Red Earth Museum in downtown to see more than 1,400 traditional and contemporary Native American art pieces including traditional and contemporary fine art, pottery, basketry, textiles, jewelry and beadwork.

The Wild, Wild Wine

At first blush, Stockyards Citymight not sound like a haven for wine connoisseurs, but the historic district puts the moo in Merlot for the Wines of the West Festival. From 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 11, lovers of the grape can purchase a $10 ticket to sample some of Oklahoma’s finest wines in Stockyards stores while browsing for the best in western apparel. That’s a mighty fine Chardonnay, pardner.
