Oklahoma- first week report

Jump to last reply

I grew up here and am busy exploring Oklahoma as a tourist now. Of course it was cold upon arrival and is now too hot to enjoy a day outside.

We've hit Taco Bueno and Sonic more times than I care to count. I have yet to try the fried pickles this trip. Of course you have to love the corn dogs, frito pies, and Strawberry Limeades. When I was growing up Vanilla Dr. Peppers were the favorite drink.

I mentioned earlier that Texas Roadhouse on I-240 and Chileno's in Norman were great places to eat with a child.

Today we saw the Clydesdale horses at the Express Ranch in Yukon. The owner has the biggest house I have ever seen. The horses were cool. The people were rude. And there was nothing to do other than take photos of the horses in the stalls. You think they would have pony rides or something to get you excited about being there. Even the gift shop was shabby.

Then we went to the Stockyards or Cowtown. It looked like most main streets in small towns. I did buy $40 pink leather, silver tipped boots for my 3 year old at Western Outlet. If we shopped around I may have found cheaper. I could smell onions in there air, but am not much of a steak gal.

Then we went to the Paseo Arts District. Most of the art studios aren't open each day. We did find a man making carosel horses. We found a quaint eatery called Galileo Bar and Grill. The menu sounded very appealing. The food was a bit of a letdown. Everything did taste over-grilled. I had hummus which wasn't very good. Over-grilled pita. And a Greek salad, but they forgot the olives. I will give them another chance because they have poetry on Weds nights.

Of course I've hit Penn Square Mall which now has a Pottery Barn Kids and also BabiesRUs. Victoria's Secret is having an awesome sale now too.

We have more plans museum plans for the rest of the week.
