Kids love Spring Break! There are loads of activities and camps for them. But adults need a break too! Spring break isn’t all about the kids. While they’re relaxing from school and enjoying themselves, the parents need some time to rejuvenate. You may not be able to take time off from work, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy yourself. We have put together a list of 9 adult fun activities here in Oklahoma City that give parents a much needed time out.
1. Getaway to the 21c Museum Hotel
Spend a night out without the kids in this eclectic boutique hotel. Enjoy the hotel’s private collection of contemporary art, then head to Mary Eddy’s Kitchen X Lounge and indulge in a New American menu with seasonal ingredients. Located in the Arts District, 21c is close to several other Oklahoma City restaurants and attractions, but opting for a reservation at The Spa is a good enough reason to stay in.
2. See a show at Civic Center Music Hall
OKC Broadway and the OKC Philharmonic are packing the Civic Center calendar with must-see performances all season long, and you can catch 4 alone during Spring Break: Anastasia from March 3-8, The Illusionists - Live from Broadway from March 13-14, The Office! A Musical Parody on March 18 and Jersey Boys and Girls from March 20-21.
3. Enjoy dinner and live music in Uptown 23rd
Tower Theatre is one of the city’s most iconic live music venues. Throughout Spring Break, the schedule includes live shows with Raul Malo, Keller Williams, Mt. Joy and others. Before the show, enjoy dinner at a nearby eatery like The Drake, Cheever’s Café or Pizzeria Gusto.
4. Learn the art of glass blowing at Blue Sage Studios
Get hands on in the studio to create your very own blown glass piece of art. Schedule a 1-on-1 class or just stop in and observe a studio artist practicing his/her craft.
5. Head to Chisholm Creek for active fun
At Topgolf, enjoy a little competition on the tee box while enjoying great food and drinks. Then head over to iFly Indoor Skydiving where you’ll suit up and soar inside an indoor vertical wind tunnel. Both are great for date night or with a group of friends.
6. Laugh at the OKC Improv
7. Play like an Olympian at RIVERSPORT Rapids
Olympic whitewater athletes train in this state-of-the-art whitewater rafting and kayaking course. Experience the thrill of shooting down the rapids yourself.

Sample locally made wines from this family owned winery. Afterwards, explore the local shops and restaurants along Automobile Alley.
9. Beat the clock at an escape room
