Honestly, I’ve never done anything in Norman but cover football and men’s basketball games. I’m sure Norman is full of wonderful places to visit and terrific eateries, but Oklahoma City is about 20 minutes north and Oklahoma City has Bricktown.
As trendy as Bricktown is, however, THE place to eat in Oklahoma City is the Cattleman’s Cafe on Agnew Street in the stockyards area. The only thing better than the Cafe’s steaks are the massive back-lit rangeland murals on the walls.
We usually stayed, however, on Meridian Street’s motel row north of Will Rogers World Airport, the only airport named after a man who was killed in a plane crash.
Guilty Pleasure: Riding the canal boats in Bricktown. Sure, they’re hokey, but what the heck.
