Introducing Oklahoma City
Often abbreviated to OKC, Oklahoma City is nearly dead-center in the state and is the cultural and political capital. It has worked hard over the years to become more than just a cow town, all without turning its back on its cowboy heritage. It makes a good pause on your Route 66 travels and has numerous attractions plus good restaurants that offer more than just chicken fried steak.
The city is forever linked to the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P Murrah Federal Building and the memorials to this tragedy are moving and worthy stops.
