Travel + Leisure has named Oklahoma City a top most affordable destination for fall travel, and there's never been a better time to make the trip. 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, and the action and adrenaline of our college sports don't stop in Stillwater or Norman. Catch the big game at one of OKC's sports bars, like Chalk or Bricktown Brewery, or get in the spirit at a craft brewery taproom. You can celebrate a "win" afterward with a boozy milkshake at Kong's Tavern in Midtown (which will help if the day ends in a loss, too).
Now that basketball season is also in full swing, catching a Thunder game is a can't-miss Oklahoma City experience, and you can Thunder Up like a local with our Thunder Guide.
Downtown in December
Downtown OKC's holiday event extravaganza, Downtown in December, starts well before the month it is named for this year with activities that are just as enjoyable during the fall as they will be during the winter. Mark your calendar for pre-holiday cheer starting November 8.
Fall is the perfect time to indulge in a caffeinated creation from one of Oklahoma City's coffeehouses. Find yourself in a cozy coffee shop and sip on a locally brewed cup of joe coupled with the fall flavors of salted caramel, cinnamon, maple and, of course, pumpkin spice.
