Oklahoma City is a fast-growing, vibrant city with more attractions than one could imagine. Regardless of age, there truly is something for children, teenagers, and adult family members. Make your way down to Bricktown, one of the most visited destinations within the city. Here you can enjoy a river walk with multiple festive shops and restaurants along the Bricktown Canal. Then stroll on over to the city's National Memorial, which honors the victims of the 1995 Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building terrorist attack.1 However, if you are looking for a more light-hearted attraction for your children and teenagers, visit the Oklahoma City Zoo which features nearly 3,000 animals. Here your family can enjoy everything from dolphins and sea lions to nature classes of all types. The Myriad Botanical Gardens is another hot spot within the area that is specifically great for a family entertainment.
