Oklahoma City is a study in contrasts. From quiet reflection at the Oklahoma City National Memorial to the exhilaration of whitewater rafting on the river, you never know what might be around the bend. And for a city built in a hurry during the Land Run, it has an unmistakably laid-back vibe and never strays too far from its Western roots. How can you get an authentic feel for this city with so much to offer? 100 Things to Do in Oklahoma City Before You Die is the quintessential guide to all the history, sports, innovation, and entertainment in OKC where culture busts out of every seam. Catch a glimpse of the enduring American West at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum. Or to see real cowboys in action, head to the historic Stockyards City for the world's largest live cattle auction. Travel by streetcar to see the city's best art exhibits, like Dale Chihuly's breathtaking glass tower at the OKC Museum of Art. Learn how a city that was part of the infamous Dust Bowl became an Olympic rowing destination as you explore the architecture of the Boathouse District. Author and native Oklahoman Lauren Roth loves surprising visitors with the top recommendations in her hometown. With her insider tips and itineraries, this book will open a door to Oklahoma City you might not have expected and leave you wide-eyed at every turn.
About the Author
Lauren Roth is an Oklahoma City native and a monthly contributor for 405 Magazine, Central Oklahoma's premier lifestyle magazine. Her work has also appeared in American Airlines' in-flight magazine, American Way, on various travel websites (no, not just reviews on Trip Advisor), as well as in countless (and so under-appreciated) ads related to her day job in marketing. When she's not on a publishing deadline…strike that — she's always on a publishing deadline — she likes to spend time in Santa Fe, ride Vespas along Italy's Amalfi Coast with her husband, Eric, and venture out for the occasional girls' trip. (Insert record scratch.) That's what she likes to do. On a typical weekend, you'll probably find her up to her eyeballs in laundry, embarking on the first half of an overly ambitious home project, hopping from one farmers' market to the next, and exploring her ever-evolving hometown with an appreciation that can only come from having seen the "before" version.
