Bricktown, Oklahoma City

Canal boat cruises are popular  in Bricktown, the reinvented warehouse district of Oklahoma City.

Gleaming from the renaissance it has undergone in the past decade, Oklahoma City offers plenty of fresh options for group travelers.
But the state’s largest metropolis won’t disappoint anyone looking for heady doses of old-time Western flavor. In the Bricktown dining-entertainment district, groups can enjoy music clubs, minor league baseball, a canal boat ride and even the American Banjo Museum. For a taste of the true West, consider a tour of the Oklahoma National Stockyards or visit to the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum.

For group travel ideas in Northeastern Oklahoma, see the sidebar on Cherokee Nation tours and historic sites. Choices range from the Cherokee Heritage Center in Park Hill to the Will Rogers National Memorial Museum in Claremore. Groups will find glitz, glamour and gaming action at the new Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa, operated by Cherokee Nation Entertainment.
