I just re-discovered Bricktown in Oklahoma City a couple of weekends ago. As we were traveling back from a family event in the area, we decided to stop for a meal by the canals. We were pleasantly surprised by what we saw. It has grown and developed so much since we had been there. This would be a wonderful day trip or weekend trip for that matter. There is plenty to do for a day just in Bricktown and then so many downtown OKC attractions surrounding Bricktown.
This is well suited to either a family trip or a couple’s trip. You will find lots of fun eating places and shops surrounding the canals. I had always wanted to float the canals, so we did so on the Bricktown Water Taxi. The boat driver gave a guided tour as we made our way around the canals of Bricktown and the surrounding attractions. We were delighted to encounter the lovely sculptures that have been done to honor OK history as we floated on the water ways. The water taxis are powered by electricity. Pretty cool. We were also told the canals are lit up at night. I might add that if you wish to spend the night, there are many close hotels in the area.
Some of the Bricktown attractions and things to do are:
Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark
America Banjo Museum
Bricktown Water Taxi
Coca Cola Event Center
Horsedrawn Carriage Rides
Lots of fun restaurants and shops around the canals
OK artist sculptures of depicting OK history around the canals
