Oklahoma City is the perfect destination for families. Children of all ages will delight in the attractions and activities that will make a day in Oklahoma City fly by. Below are some of the best are-we-there-yet attractions for kids.
Frontier City Theme Park, Oklahoma City's only amusement park, has 50+ rides, shows and attractions to keep kids and adults entertained all day. The more than 30 rides, pools and water fun at White Water Bay keep kids cool and entertained on Oklahoma City's warm summer days. Catch a Dive-In movie as the sun goes down.
Skulls and skeletons abound at the Museum of Osteology, in the only museum of its kind in North America. The museum focuses on the form and function of the skeletal system with displays from all over the world.
With more than 2,000 animals and amazing exhibits, plus a Children's Zoo, families can easily spend an entire day exploring the expansive grounds at the Oklahoma City Zoo. And don't fret, if your legs get tired, you can grab a ride on the Safari Tram for a guided tour of the zoo grounds.
After the zoo, take a short walk across the parking lot to Science Museum Oklahoma where hands-on exhibits and activities will keep kids busy for hours. And don't forget to visit the International Gymnastics Hall of Fame located inside the museum.
Get your kicks on Route 66. Start at Route 66 Park in west Oklahoma City and follow the Mother Road east to POPS, home of the 66-foot-tall pop bottle. Grab a burger and take your pick from more than 500 kinds of sodas at this one-of-a-kind ultramodern landmark.
