Oklahoma City embodies the Modern Frontier and defines its own future. A young city steeped in Native American and Western culture, openness and an enterprising nature, OKC embraces its roots and continues to pave the way as a center of innovation and entrepreneurship where anything is possible.

To continue on our journey of exploring Oklahoma City, our next stop will be the First Americans Museum, Oklahoma City’s newest premier Smithsonian-affiliated attraction.

We will have lunch and enjoy an authentic meal before leaving for the next adventure.
After lunch, get ready for a lively and upbeat visit to the American Banjo Museum, where we’ll tour the largest collection of banjos on public display in the world. Then, take a seat in the performance venue modeled after one of the wildly popular banjo nightclubs of the 1960s, to enjoy a banjo performance.
Next on the tour, we are going to visit the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum. This all-encompassing museum highlights many aspects of the Western experience to include Western performers, Native American culture, the sport of rodeo, fine arts and the latest outdoor experience –Liichokochkomo’.
To stay immersed in cowboy culture, we will enjoy a “Date with the Duke," a BBQ dinner and a classic John Wayne movie.
Start the day with a visit to the Oklahoma Land Run Monument, featuring 45 heroic figures of land run participants, frozen in motion as they race to claim new homesteads, which commemorates the opening of the Unassigned Land in Oklahoma Territory with the Land Run of 1889.
This morning, we will take a stroll through historic Stockyards City, which offers a close-up look into the cowboy/cattle industry with custom boot and hat maker shops and a visit to the catwalks and auction arena where all the action really happens.
Every state has its historic places and stories, but few can equal the story of Cattlemen’s Steakhouse, the oldest continuously operating restaurant in Oklahoma City. Today, we have lunch at this unique, historic restaurant.
Spend the afternoon at the races or try your luck in the casino. At Remington Park: Horse Racing and Casino, your afternoon will be enhanced with a trip to the Winners Circle where your group presents the winner’s blanket for a race that’s been custom-named just for them.
This evening, you will sit back and relax with a cooking demo and craft beer tasting before you enjoy an “Oklahoma” dinner.
Maybe it’s a bucket list item or maybe not, but either way, the Oklahoma State Capitol offers a unique tour highlighting Oklahoma’s fascinating history, including the fact that it's the only capital with an oil well on its grounds.
To immerse yourself further into the history and heritage of Oklahoma, the Oklahoma History Center is an eighteen-acre, 215,000 square-foot learning center exploring Oklahoma’s unique history of Native culture, pioneers, aviation, commerce and more. Experience a “Living History Performance.” When these living historians are “in character,” you will have a definite time machine experience.
Named after a country song, our lunch today will be at Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar and Grill.
Our final stop will be at the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum. On April 19, 1995, Oklahoma City experienced the deadliest act of domestic terrorism the United States had ever seen.
