Fodor's Expert Review Bricktown Downtown OKC Entertainment District
What was once a massive railroad graveyard, where abandoned warehouses stood like giant tombstones, is now the crossroads for dining, shopping, headline entertainment, nightlife, and professional sports in Oklahoma City. A canal-side walkway, framed with turn-of-the-century charm, winds through an area revitalized with the can-do spirit of Oklahoma. You can shop in tiny boutiques or destination outlets like Bass Pro Outdoor World; visit a quirky spot like the American Banjo Museum; choose from dozens of restaurants to satisfy your appetite; take in a professional NBA game; and tap your toes to live music. And if you're having so much fun that you don't want to go home, there are nine hotels within walking distance.
