Imagine this: It’s the day after Thanksgiving and your belly is as full of turkey as your house is with family. Avoid the rush of shopping at big box stores, shut off the TV and get off the couch - it's going to be in the 70's outside and adventure awaits in OKC.
Relax and Recuperate post Turkey Day.
After the heaviness of a day full of feasting, hit the reset button with detoxifying and refreshing tea at Urban Teahouse. Enjoy a cozy, friendly atmosphere with friends or family or go solo and sip your cares away. Belly up to the tea bar and have the team help you select a tea best suited for you.
With 90s hot jams and a funky, friendly staff, Wheeze the Juice offers a twist on a juice bar. Creative, cold pressed juice fusions are Wheeze’s speciality. They also offer housemade nut milks, energy bites, smoothies and smoothie bowls. Time for that post holiday juice cleanse? Stock up and drink up!
Late night? Wake up to donuts and coffee at Holey Rollers! Gluten free, vegan, fried yeast donuts and donut holes are served alongside locally roasted coffees, EÔTÉ and KLLR. While in the neighborhood, take a stroll through the reviving and thriving Paseo Arts District and be transported to a Spanish style village dotted with sculptures by local artists.
Looking for adventure?
Head outdoors for some snow tubing at the Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark, ice skating at the Devon Ice Rink on the east side of the Myriad Gardens, indoor go-kart racing at Pole Position or even some indoor sky diving at iFLY in Chisholm Creek off Memorial Road.

Lastly, Show your family OKC's holiday Scene
We've already covered snow tubing and ice skating but there's plenty of other Downtown in December festivities happening around town. See the city come to life at the Bricktown Tree Lighting Festival at 5pm. If you're in the mood for some local shopping, the Deluxe Winter Market is in full swing at Leadership Square and the Midtown Holiday Pop-up Shops will be packed with patrons and deals. If you really want your guests to see what OKC is known for, head to State Fair Park for the NRHA Futurity -- we are the "Horse Show Capitol of the World" you know...
