September in OKC
Fall and cooler temps are on the horizon! This month, get out and explore Oklahoma City outdoors, discover new attractions and experience fun you won't find anywhere else.
Things to Do in September
Prepare to fall in love with Oklahoma City this autumn. Although this season might look a little different, there is still so much fun to (safely) be had in the Modern Frontier. Here are a few of our recommendations of ways to discover OKC this month!
Get a Taste of the Outdoors
With cooler temps approaching, there's never been a better time to experience Oklahoma City outside! Go bird watching at Martin Nature Park. Bike or run the trails at Lake Hefner. Cast a line (or two) at Stinchcomb Wildlife Refuge. Take a walk through The Crystal Bridge Tropical Conservatory at Myriad Botanical Gardens. Spend Saturday in Scissortail Park shopping local at the weekly Farmers Market followed by a paddle boat ride on the lake. You'll find there's no shortage of outdoor recreation in OKC.
Gaze at Oklahoma City's Public Art
From colorful murals to interactive art installations, Oklahoma City's public art scene is vibrant. Discover Plaza Walls in the Plaza District as they bring back their annual mural expo in a brand-new way. In Automobile Alley, visit Campbell Art Park at the Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center and run, dance or skip across the interactive lightscape, Aqueous (only in OKC until Oct. 19!). Beauty is all around the Modern Frontier, and fall is the perfect time to go mural chasing.
Go on a Social Distance-Friendly Adventure
As doors reopened across Oklahoma City, they did so with new social-distancing measures in place. Explore new exhibits at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art and the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum (be sure to say hi to Tim!) or head on over to the Oklahoma City Zoo for an outdoor safari walk. If you're not afraid of heights, take a ride on the Wheeler Wheel in Wheeler District for a fantastic view of the downtown skyline.
