OKLAHOMA

Oklahoma Home

If one is a stickler for detail it could be logically argued that Oklahoma is not Texas. One does exit the State of Texas to enter Oklahoma. And technically Oklahoma is a separate state. But to the outside observer Texas is not only a state, but a state of mind. And that mind state definitely extends up to Oklahoma. Texasification also extends south into Mexico, east into Louisiana and, definitely, northeast into Arkansas and slightly west into New Mexico. So, these Eyes on Texas took a trip to Oklahoma City the last weekend of March, 2001. Three things stood out in OKC. The Myriad Botanical Gardens. The Oklahoma City National Memorial. And Bricktown.

If memory serves Oklahoma City is the largest city in the United States (in geographic size). It does seem to sprawl. While the above three areas will show you the beauty and the tragedy of Oklahoma City there are other sites to be seen. The downtown is quite small. Heading north from downtown there is a top rated zoo and science center. In far north OKC there is a theme park called Frontier City owned and operated by Six Flags Over Texas. Six Flags also operates a big waterpark on the west side of town called Whitewater Bay. Also west of downtown is Stockyard City, the world's largest Stockyard. OKC is home to the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, the world's largest collection of western lore and art. Fabled Route 66 runs through OKC. To the south just a bit, in a suburb/separate city called Norman, there's a University which seems to win football games a lot, apparently to the consternation of many in Texas.
