The Newest Big City in the Nation

Look out everyone; there is a new kid on the block! So to say.

Oklahoma City is the capital and principle city in the state of Oklahoma. With a population of more than 1.2 million residents, there is plenty to do and see.

The city is comprised of a dynamic urban core with sprawling residential suburbs that spill-out toward the fringes of the metroplex. Most of the big city tourist attractions are located in the inner city districts, as is the case with most other major US cities.

Oklahoma City has an exciting history that began in one day with the 1889 Land Run, and after hard times over the years, the city has turned itself around and has become a lively, attractive place to live and to visit. A true Renaissance!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:New vitality and progressive sense of lively urbanism
  • Cons:Still too many self condemning, ultra-conservative, far right-wing residents
  • In a nutshell:Oklahoma City is the "Renaissance City"

    Hetero friends always talked about Angles (never been myself). The tourist traps is misnamed here though -- most of the places you mentioned are out of the way for normal travelers. Good page!
