Empire is on 16th Street in the Plaza District. They've got a rotating daily slice menu (Get the MCA - it's seriously SO GOOD) and whole pies. One of the best spots for a slice, a small caesar salad and a cold beer!

If I could eat breakfast at Aurora every single day, I would. The biscuits are too die for. The BLTA has the BEST garlic aioli on it. The berries & cream french toast is so fluffy. The coffee is always good. They've got amazing espresso based drinks and brunch cocktails. In case you can't tell, this is one of my favs. Seriously, check it out. They get super busy on Saturday and Sunday mornings, so head there early or call and check on the wait time.

New State has great burgers. Two thin patties, cheese and a chopped pickle and onion relish. They've also got a pretty good list of whiskey if that's your thing. Highly recommend getting a classic burger, fries (with ranch) and an old fashioned.

Hvað á að taka með

Bring a hat, sunglasses and hair ties!

OKC is a windy and sunny place! Make sure you've got something to keep your hair out of your face and the sun out of your eyes.
Samgöngur

Travel by car or ride share!

OKC has some really walkable areas, but you'll need a car or a ride share to get there. If you're in a district that's walkable, like the Paseo or Bricktown, you'll be good to go once you're there, so make sure you wear your comfy shoes! Downtown does have a rail system that will take you around.
