Tiffany from Corvallis asked

What sort of hands-on things can I experience in OKC?

I'm moving Oklahoma City and looking for amazing food and cool things to do and see, but also for hands-on, interesting, culturally relevant experiences that are unique to Oklahoma. How can I connect with local culture? What makes OKC different from other places?

Hi Tiffany,

Welcome to Oklahoma City! The first thing I would recommend is checking out the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber's website for new residents - www.abetterlifeokc.com. It will hopefully answer a lot of questions for you. Another great resource (shameless plug) is the Oklahoma City CVB site - www.VisitOKC.com. Check out the District pages under "Visitor Info" to get a feel for the unique districts around town and what they have to offer. You can see the digital version of our 2015 Oklahoma City Visitors Guide (http://www.visitokc.com/visitor-info/visitors-guide/visitors-guide-online/) there as well, which will give suggestions for great restaurants and things to see and do.

As far as connecting with local culture, I would recommend your first stop be the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum. They've recently completed an $8 million renovation, including hundreds of new artifacts and oral histories, as well as 35 new interactive stations. It will give you a good feel for our recent history and the kind of people you'll find in your new hometown.

Thanks, Seth! I'll check out those links. I lived in OKC before, but it's been 12 years, so I'm looking forward to seeing the changes and digging in a bit more.

Nice suggestions, Jackie! By the way, I'm a community manager here and I've helped you highlight the places in your answer on a map! In the future, you can do this yourself as you answer a question by simply typing the @-symbol followed by the name of the place. Take a look at your map next to your answer :)

One thing you have to check out is the Museum of Osteology which is a museum dedicated to the study of bones. Sounds totally weird, but it's actually pretty interesting and it's certainly unique to the culture!
