Think Oklahoma and the chances are you’ll think cowboys, oil wells and the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical. But while the ‘Big Friendly’ is proud of its Western roots it has channeled that pioneering spirit into reinventing itself as a vibrant, forward-looking city complete with museums, galleries and some of the best eateries in the Midwest.
OKC sits dead center of Oklahoma state and is also a magnet for fans of the outdoors, drawn to the frontier country of the southern plains. Here you can enjoy fishing, kayaking, hiking and a round of golf.
Oklahoma is at its best from July to October, and this is the most popular time of the year to visit so plan ahead to increase your chances of finding a cheap flight.
The spring rains can cause humidity in early summer, but once that has passed the weather is glorious, with sunny days and temperatures of 90°F. Things cool down from September but it does not get cold until November.
During winter the temperature can plummet to below freezing, but this is the driest time of year and the best time to find a bargain flight.
There are events to watch out for all year round in Oklahoma, including the annual regatta in September, major craft fairs in October and February, and the Red Earth Festival, an important celebration of Native American culture, in June.
There are flights to Oklahoma from cities across the US, and there are many ways to find the best deals when booking with Orbitz.
The ‘Nearby airports’ option below your departure and arrival points allows you to compare prices to and from different airports, which can be helpful if you need a connecting flight. Having leeway in your schedule can also pay dividends and by clicking ‘Show flexible dates’ you can compare the best prices to Oklahoma City on different days.
You can filter results using the menu on the left of the screen or using the ‘Show options’ drop-down menu. This allows you to view direct or connecting flights, compare airlines, sort flights by duration or look for certain types of ticket.

Named for Cherokee entertainer Will Rogers, who died in a plane crash in Alaska in 1935, Will Rogers World Airport is the main entry point to Oklahoma City and handles nearly 4 million passengers a year.
Rogers was a versatile character who was variously a cowboy, vaudeville performer and newspaper columnist.
Taxis and shuttles are available but there is no bus service into Oklahoma from the airport. Car rental facilities are based north of the terminal, and a bus ferries passengers there. There are shops and restaurants and ATMs at the airport. Often local works of art are on display.
Alternatives to Will Rogers World Airport are Dallas/Fort Worth International and Tulsa International, which are both around two hours’ drive away.
Among the airlines flying to Will Rogers World Airport are:
The public transport system is not comprehensive, and the downtown trolley service ended in 2010. There is a decent bus service north of downtown but there are fewer in other areas, where you will need to drive or take a taxi.
It is possible to explore the city center by bike and the adventurous can kayak down the river. But with few other options the best way to get around Oklahoma City is by hire car. The city is laid out on a grid and is easy to navigate.
East of the city center is Bricktown, OKC’s thriving entertainment district. A once down-at-heel industrial warehouse area, Bricktown was rejuvenated during the 1990s and is now home to cinemas, restaurants, a baseball stadium and banjo museum.
The Oklahoma City bomb, which killed 168 people in 1995, still casts a dark cloud over the city. The blast destroyed the Alfred P Murrah Federal Building and the site is now home to the Oklahoma City National Memorial. North of the memorial is the Oklahoma City National Memorial Museum.
The Adventure District is northeast of the city center. Here you can find attractions including the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, Frontier City amusement park and Oklahoma Zoo.
Although the city was founded in the 1880s people have lived around Oklahoma for many thousands of years, so try and make time to explore its Native American history. The capitol's dome features a three-ton statue inspired by the 39 native tribes of Oklahoma.
If you hire a car be sure to drive along Route 66. There are 400 miles of the highway in Oklahoma and it passes right through the city center.
