When you step off your Oklahoma City flight, it might be hard to believe that before 1887, this land was almost completely inhabited. Then, overnight, its borders were opened, and more than 10,000 people raced on foot, by horseback, in wagons, and even on bicycle to set up camp in the new, fertile farmland. Many who settled here took comfort in the remote and spacious greenery that made up the vast and lush land.
For the most part, the city seemed to keep to itself, but its solitude came to a screeching halt in 1995 when the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building was bombed my domestic terrorists, killing 168 people. The revitalization process has been one of constant hope and togetherness of the city’s residents, and is has come a long way since then.
To experience the hope and renewal of a city rebuilt, book a flight to Oklahoma City to support its new growth, such as the Bricktown entertainment district, or Red Earth, the largest Native American festival in the world. Its seasonal climate, cowboy roots, and western culture makes booking flights to Oklahoma City an intriguing spot for travel any time of year.
