Home to a number of shops specializing in all things western, you can outfit an entire ranch (cattle included) or just find a new pair of boots and enjoy a great steak in Stockyards City. It’s home to the Oklahoma National Stock Yards, the world’s largest feeder and stocker cattle market, where live cattle auctions take place every Monday and Tuesday and are open to the public.
Eat Like a Ranch Hand
The oldest continually-operating restaurant in Oklahoma City and a nationally-known Stockyards City staple, Cattlemen’s Steakhouse has been visited by Presidents, movie stars, pro athletes and music icons, among others. It’s worth a visit for a delicious steak, some ever-popular lamb fries and a thick slice of coconut cream pie. If you’re out-and-about early, they serve one of the hardiest (and best) breakfasts in town.
Shop the West
Belly Up to a 50-Foot-Long Oaken Bar
McClintock Saloon & Chop House combines an Old West saloon experience, including 170 types of whiskeys, with upscale dining, right in the heart of the district.
Tap Your Toes to Live Music
If country music is your jam, then attend one of the shows at the Rodeo Opry along Exchange Avenue. This family-friendly venue serves up live tunes every Saturday night.
Of course, the guide above is just a sampling of what there is to taste, see and do in the district.
