Experience the energy, excitement and welcoming spirit of the Modern Frontier this autumn.
With Travel + Leisure naming Oklahoma City one of the top most-affordable destinations for fall travel, there's never been a better time to discover the Modern Frontier. Whether you're in town for an OU or OSU football game or taking advantage of a cool weather weekend in the city, here's your guide to all things autumn in OKC.
Fall means football in Oklahoma, but the action and adrenaline of college sports aren't limited to Stillwater or Norman. Catch the big games at one of OKC's sports bars like Chalk or Bricktown Brewery, or get in the spirit at a craft brewery taproom. Celebrate wins afterward with a boozy milkshake at S&B Burger Joint in Automobile Alley (which will help if the day ends in a loss, too).
Fall into Fun
With the return of many beloved annual events this fall, it's the perfect time to experience the vibrancy of OKC. Whether you're taking a trip to one of the city's many live music performances or immersing yourself in Oklahoma City's exceptional art scene, you'll find something for everyone to enjoy.
