The Perfect One Day in OKC - Travel Itinerary

Serving as Oklahoma’s capital and largest city, Oklahoma City offers an abundance of activities and events to keep you entertained for endless amounts of time. Unfortunately, our time there wasn’t endless, but even though we only had one day to explore “The Big Friendly”, we feel like we were able to get a good taste of the city and had an amazing time in the process. If you’re a time-crunched traveler like us, then this is (we think) the perfect itinerary for you to make the most of your time in OKC!
