Oklahoma City, known colloquially as OKC, is a bustling metropolis with a pioneer heart. With about 630,000 residents, it’s got all the big-city amenities you’d normally find in a state capital – fine dining, intriguing museums and top-notch performing arts – but you can easily become immersed in the city’s Old West heritage via its many cowboy-themed restaurants, shops and activities, too.
Oklahoma City may be a big Midwestern city, but you’d be forgiven for thinking you were in an Old West cowboy town. For example, you can see live cattle auctions at the Stockyards City auction house, then enjoy a hearty steak dinner at Cattleman’s Steakhouse before heading to the Rodeo Opry. Oklahoma City is also known as the “Horse Show Capital of the World,” and competitions can be seen at State Fair Park. If you want to dress the part, pick up some Western attire at Langston’s Western Wear, Joe’s Boots or the Outlet Shoppes at Oklahoma City.
