I fixed the title ArmyWife.

It depends on your preferences; there are A LOT of things to do in the OkC area. You might try lake Hefner, or of course, Bricktown. But you will be in Bricktown anyway if you go to Toby Keiths.

Hopefully Happytown or another resident of OkC will chime in to help you out.

Have fun!

Rather than Toby's place (average food and too much money) try the Cattleman's Steakhouse at the stock yards. You might also like the Cowboy Heritage center.....they have some nice exhibits. A walk around Myriad Gardens and along the canal is pretty nice too.

If you can stand art and you like history you need to definitely go to the Cowboy Hall of Fame. Goodpasture's right on Toby Keith's (I love his music not his food)...the food is pretty average. Unfortunately, instead of pork ribs (he has "beef" ribs on the menu....for reasons only God knows why), but there is okra and the standard Okie fare so you'll get a taste of some OK City food for the most part. I would suggest going to TK's for the live music and some appetizers after eating your meal at Earl's Rib Palace, which is right next door to TK's. Oh, the Bass Pro Shop is also a lot of fun if you like outdoorsy stuff and fishing and hunting. Hope this helps and have a blast on your trip

I think OKC has so-o-o-o-o-o much to show and stuff to do. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough time to do it all. In defense of Toby, it is very good food and a lot of it. Yeah, it is up there in price, but it is Toby Keith. If you are a Toby fan like I am, well, need I say more. I spent a great deal of time at Bricktown just walking around. The canal, scenery. I did go to Bass Pro shop too. That was pretty neat. Prices not bad if your looking to purchase a special item.

I just got back from my first trip to OKC and I'm with the person who recommended Cattlemen's Steakhouse. That was some SERIOUS steak... but don't be surprised if, for two people who ARE NOT drinking, the bill for food alone comes to $50. Make sure they cook it the way you want it... apparently, they're used to undercooking meat for those poor souls who are willing to risk E.coli sickness just so that the steak will taste a certain way... I'm not one of those people, preferring mine "well done"... the darn steak came out practically still moo-ing. That being said, when they finally cooked it right, it tasted spectacular.

When you go, DO NOT stay at the Garden Inn and Suites (now being turned into a Howard Johnson). That hotel sucked.

It's a shameful waste of a good steak to cook it beyond hot and bloody.
