You can feel the tease of spring weather approaching OKC this week and with that comes the much-needed and deserved week-long Spring Break. A chance for kids to take a break from school, parents to enjoy a week off from work and our need for getting out and rolling the windows down on the car. And, best of all, there are many activities and events happening in Oklahoma City during Spring Break for the entire family to take part in. So brace yourself for a fun-filled week and make the most out of your time.
Here are just a few places to try out as we kick-off spring:
