Oklahoma City serves as one of the state's greatest tourist hotspots thanks to its incredible number of historical and fun-filled attractions. A couple of must-visit locations include a zoo and a heritage museum. Here are a few places you should plan to visit if you come over to Oklahoma City!
Oklahoma City National Memorial
The Oklahoma City National Memorial was formally dedicated to honor the victims, rescue personnel, and survivors of the Oklahoma City bombing of 1995. The outdoor memorial stretches over three acres and has no closing hours.
The Gates of Time, two bronze gates, house the moment of destruction. The eastern gate depicts the final moment of peace before the bombing. The western gate holds the first steps towards recovery. The Reflecting Pool is a thin layer of water that rests on polished black granite and runs east to west on what used to be Fifth Street. Visitors can see their reflection as well as the deeper meaning behind the pool. Other features like the Survivor Tree, Survivors' Wall, and Field of Empty Chairs, attract visitors from all over the country as well.
