With how unpredictable life seems these days, it's nice to have something to count on. Spring break, those five days off at the beginning of each spring, act as a restful retreat for some and an exciting experience for others. Oklahoma City has unique places to stay and thrilling attractions to experience.

Restful Retreats

For a much-needed change of scenery, book a night at one of these unique lodging destinations or escape to the recently opened Omni Oklahoma City Hotel. With four dining outlets, a heated pool deck, full-service spa and close proximity to Scissortail Park, the OKC Streetcar and more, the Omni has amenities the whole family will enjoy.

Exciting Experiences

Pet a stingray and catch a live pirate or mermaid show. Dive shows, reptile feedings and more fun activities abound at Blue Zoo Aquarium. This interactive aquarium is located inside Quail Springs Mall and opens a whole new underwater world up to your kiddo.

Walk on the wild side. Explore more than 110 acres of animals and gardens, plus go behind the scenes with Wild Encounters and get up close with animal feedings. While the Zoo has plenty of activities to entertain, we’d be remiss not to also mention their neighboring attractions throughout OKC’s Adventure District. From the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum to Science Museum Oklahoma and the USA Softball Hall of Fame Complex and Museum, there’s no shortage of top-notch attractions, many with special spring break programming.


Take fun up a notch. At Chisholm Creek, this mixed-use development offers adrenaline-pumping activities, plus a cool mix of locally-owned dining and retail favorites. Work up an appetite at iFly Indoor Skydiving or Topgolf and then mosey on over to one of 20 tasty dining options.

Try the new surfing and skiing simulators, plus paddlesports of all kinds at RIVERSPORT Adventures, experience the thrill of live racing at Remington Park and Frontier City will also be open for their 2022 season.
