Beautiful 18 hole, par 70 golf course that includes a full service bar and restaurant, a lighted driving range, a 1,200 square foot indoor video teaching facility, and a PGA professional on site.
Although just minutes from downtown, this beautiful public course is surrounded by beautiful Oklahoma country. It is one of the more challenging courses around, with all of the obstacles and tall native grass in the roughs. Practice on the putting green and driving range, and after you play, enjoy a cold beer in the snack bar.
Twenty traps and two water hazards come into play at this 18 hole golf course that includes two chipping green, a driving range, a 10,000 square foot putting green, a restaurant, and five PGA professionals on staff.
Family bowling center that features 40 bowling lanes, computerized scoring, and a large game room.
This is one of the prettiest courses around. It is also one the more high-tech courses. There are computers in every golf cart, which are linked to a Global Positioning Satellite system. The GPS system will tell you precisely how far the cart is from the hole, how far you will have to hit the ball to get it over the water, and all sorts of other cool things you always wanted to know when on the course.
Totaling 6,775 yards, this 18 hole, par 72 golf course features water hazards on 14 holes and includes a driving range, putting green, restaurant, and fully stocked pro shop.
Have you been saying for years that you are going to take scuba diving lessons? Well, it is time to fish or cut bait, because here is a great place to do it. This scuba shop is different in that they sell all the equipment you need for recreational diving, and there are three pools on-site (indoor and outdoor) where their professional staff will teach you how to dive. Kids as young as 10-years old can take lessons, too.
Nothing is more exciting than a day at the races, especially when your horse is winning on the track. In addition to watching the ponies run, you can enjoy fine dining at the on-site Silks Restaurant or catch the show from your own personal box seat in the Club One lounge. Check out their 'Twilight Thursdays', where you can place bets, sample appetizers and drink for one great low price. This place is also popular for the after work crowd, where people come to the Bricktown Brewery and Henry Hudson's Pub, both perfect spots to have a drink and not necessarily gamble.
The Katy Trail follows the former train tracks of old freighters that would rumble across the OKC region during the last century. Today, most of the 7.3 mile trail is unpaved and this might be why it is one of the most sought-after spots in the entire city for its tranquility and remoteness (even though you are still in the city). If you happen to need some peace and quiet, but don't want to wander off too far, then try the Katy Trail.
This zoo in OKC is consistently rated as one of the best zoos in the United States, home to nearly 3,000 animals, it definitely is one of the largest. Some featured exhibits include the Cat Forest and Lion Overlook, in which you can see lions, tigers, jaguars and leopards. The 'Great Escape' showcases gorillas, orangutans, chimpanzees and other primate life. One of the zoo's most popular attractions is 'Aquaticus', an aquarium extravaganza that features a dolphin and sea lion spectacle. The zoo is also very active in the community, it provides nature classes, labs, tours and 'Zoomobiles' for all ages. At the end of the day, guests usually catch the show under the stars at the Zoo Amphitheater.
Martin Park provides a little natural respite for Oklahoma City's denizens with its nearly three miles of foot trails amongst thick foliage and plenty of local fauna. Visitors can reserve nature guides who describe the region's natural history or they can come alone to enjoy the tranquility. Either option notwithstanding, the park has informational stands along the way that tell you about native plants and animals. A couple of other relaxing activities include feeding turtles in the freshwater pond or taking a moment to bird watch. Highlights for the kids include 'Prairie Dog-Town' and the 'Squirrel Observatory', both are informative and fun. Whether you are alone or with the family, an afternoon strolling through the park is a great way to unwind. Admission is free.
