East Side West Side all around our town - OKC -- there is lots to see and do.  It is a best kept secret that Oklahoma City  (population 1.2 million) is a great vacation destination.  


We have not only a professional symphony orchestra that plays the sweetest music this side of heaven, but also a pro-ballet troupe and pro-musical theatre ranked in the top ten of the nation (USA Today), and our OKC zoo is one of the top 12. We have two public and four private universities in OKC area with a combined enrollment of sixty thousand, claiming five national football championships and more merit scholars than any other university.


Oklahoma produced more Astronauts than any state and probably more country music stars. Our OK favorite sons include Will Rogers, Garth Brooks, Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, and many more who achieved stardom. (Remember: It ain’t braggin’ if it is true.)
