Oklahoma City Culture and Living
When people think of Oklahoma City, most recall the devastating bombing on April 19, 1995. Just recently, the city completed the National Memorial in
commemoration of the 168 victims. But Oklahoma City has exhibited a courageous resolve to move forward. The newly renovated Myriad Convention Center, along
with area hotels that offer some 12,000 rooms, makes the city a big draw for meeting planners. At heart, however, Oklahoma City is a frontier town, as
evidenced by the National Cowboy Hall of Fame and Stockyards City, which is the largest cattle market in the world. Visitors should check out the historic
Bricktown area, Remington Race Track, the International Gymnastics Hall of Fame, the Myriad Botanical Gardens, and the Oklahoma City Zoo, which is one of the
nation's finest. The city also hosts the annual Red Earth Festival in honor of its strong Native American population.
