The Bricktown Canal is one of Oklahoma City's most popular tourist destination. Loosely modeled after San Antonio's River Walk, the canal is manmade and runs through the historic Bricktown district. There are restaurants and shops nearby and along the canal, but the real draw is the people watching. Come by after a Redhawks game, played in the nearby Bricktown Ballpark, or for one of the many happenings. Always festive, this is a great place just to hang out.
We always enjoy going to Bricktown. We take guests there when they come to visit. There are things to do for all ages. The Riverwalk and boat trip is fun and informative. Bricktown will always hold a special place in my heart. I proposed to my wife at the fountain in front of Harkins Theater.
Tour guide tried to make us laugh, but needed to go back to comedy school. I think it would be better if it went full circle instead of looking at the same thing both ways and if it weren't so much looking at the back of the buildings. There were very few things that caught my eye as interesting.
Oklahoma City really is an excellent place to live, work, or just visit. There are always things to do and Bricktown is among the best. I love that there are multiple things to do & see along the canal - including restaurants, a movie theatre, a bowling alley, and more!
I just returned home from Oklahoma City. The canal and water taxi was great. We took the water taxi from Bass Pro Shop to the ticket kiosk. I was impressed that the taxi operator picked us up and we had not paid for the ride. He gave an interesting overview of the history of the canal. We got off the taxi, bought our braclets and while waiting for the taxi to leave again we took in the sites of Bricktown Stadium.
OKC is a very clean town, at least from what we experienced. We ate lunch at Bourbon Street Cafe. This restaurant was not our first choice, but it seemed most all the other restaurants were closed. However, the food at Bourbon Street was very good. My husband had the Ky Bourbon steak. It was wonderful.
We recommend while in OKC, be sure to take the water taxi and enjoy the ride.
