With Travel + Leisure naming Oklahoma City a must-visit destination in 2020 AND 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, and although the games might look a little different this year, 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. You can celebrate a "win" 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
Families can experience the newest addition to the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, Liichokoshkomo'. Inspired by the Chickasaw phrase Let's play!, Liichokoshkomo' boasts more than 100,000 square feet of discovery areas and hands-on learning experiences, including replicas of an Intertribal Village and Western structures.
Oklahoma City Zoo
OKC's wildest attraction is home to more than 1,900 animal species. Take advantage of the cooler weather by going on an outdoor safari walk and exploring all of the different habitats at the Oklahoma City Zoo.
Conestoga Wagons & Teepees
Looking for a one-of-a-kind overnight experience? The Conestoga Wagons & Teepees at Orr Family Farm will give the whole family a night to remember, complete with lodging in a covered wagon or teepee, exclusive access to Orr Family Farm activities and, of course, s'mores roasted over an open fire.
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.
Fall Events in OKC
The holiday season is just around the corner, but there's still plenty of fall fun to be had. Fill your autumn calendar with district happenings, family festivities and outdoor events that pair perfectly with the season's crisp weather.
