Labor Day Weekend

The lazy days and long nights of summer are coming to an end, so why not head to Oklahoma City for one last hurrah? Here are our recommendations of ways to spend Labor Day Weekend in OKC and be sure to come back to check out all of the must-do's in OKC!


Oklahoma City's super-soaking attractions are the perfect places for one last summer splash. Spend your weekend on the water at RIVERSPORT Adventures with activities such as surfing, whitewater rafting, paddle boarding, tubing and more. Dive in to OKC's largest water park, Hurricane Harbor for high-speed water slides and cool pools the whole family will enjoy, or head over to Frontier City to take on Renegade Rapids and more.

For more fun on the water, check out the splash pads at Myriad Gardens, rent a pedal boat on the lake at Scissortail Park or cruise the Bricktown Canal on the Bricktown Water Taxi.

Group whitewater rafting at Riversport Adventure.


If you're looking to be inspired, check out one of OKC's art galleries or museums. Visit the Oklahoma City Museum of Art's newly opened exhibition, “True Nature: Rodin and the Age of Impressionism.” The exhibition includes 50+ works by Rodin, additional sculptural masterworks, plus Impressionist classics from Monet, Renoir, Degas and more! Get outside and explore OKC's art scene. Voted the best city in the U.S. for Street Art twice in a row by USA Today, Oklahoma City is home to vibrant murals which bring beautiful pops of color to the landscape. Go mural chasing through the districts and make time to visit Plaza Walls in the Plaza District.


With an abundance of delicious local restaurants, you can't go wrong exploring the Modern Frontier's foodie scene. Discover authentic Vietnamese food in the Asian District. Savor an Oklahoma original - the onion burger - at Tucker's Onion Burgers or Nic's Grill. Craving an end of summer barbecue feast? Our BBQ joints can't be beat.
