We often hear on how OKC is boring and there is nothing to do. That it "punches below it's weight" blah, blah, blah."

Well how about this?

Oklahoma City named a top travel destination by Money | News OK

It would appear that even if OKC punches below it's weight.................Tickets to the boxing match are cheap.

As Spring has sprung we are doing what we do everywhere we moved to - be tourists, explore, enjoy.

What are recommendations for a Chinese food in OKC. Tried one in Yukon and one in Chinatown - both no repeats.

Oops is right. Keven Durant finally got tired of Oklahoma City and left it. People were rude to him and didn't appreciate him for staying as long as he did.

Cupcake left because he did not want to be the leader of the Thunder and put the team on his back. Russ has that killer instinct, KD never had it.

But, he got what he wanted. A championship on the backs of the Golden State Warriors.

Money reporter Kerri Anne Renzulli worked with Megan Leonhardt to collect, organize and analyze more than 32,000 data points from 350 cities across the country before writing the article. Every state had multiple cities analyzed, and of the 350 examined, Oklahoma City finished ninth overall.


These are the people who did the study that led to OKC finishing #9 in said study. Why don't you email them and tell them that their study was an "hilarious claim"?

I think that both the homers and the haters got it wrong on this survey , poll , article. This ranking was strictly on a curve ( design to put Oklahoma City on equal footing with the bigger larger world-class cities) in the United States of America.

Attractions . amenities and (cost of living ) are all placed into a formula that Makes Oklahoma City Oklahoma very attractive , it doesn't cost "a lot of money to see major big city attractions in Oklahoma City Oklahoma ".

I have visited most of the 50 states in the United States of America and virtually all of the big cities and would have Place Oklahoma City higher than number (9) in the survey.

You can get a hotel in Oklahoma City for the same price as parking to a San Francisco California Giant Baseball Game.

"Low cost of living" is pretty much all OKC has to hang its hat on. Fact of the matter is that its cheap for a reason.

3.2% beer isn't supposed to last much longer. Change as it relates to alcohol has come slow. This is because Oklahoma in 1907 was required to enter the union as a dry state, and it has been trying to get over it ever since. Until prohibition was repealed in 1959, Oklahoma was the state to move to, if you were prohibitionist Christian Right. Today, it explains why Oklahoma is such a backward state. But at least some progress has been made since liquor by the drink was passed in 1984.

So they made their list based on data points? They means they never actually visited OKC. I have never met anyone that told the family "We are going to OKC for vacation!" Never, ever met anyone that even thought about it.
