Oklahoma City divides into a number of different districts, each with its own attractions. The Adventure District is home to many popular tourist sites, including the City Zoo, the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, Science Museum Oklahoma, National Softball Hall of Fame and Stadium, and Remington Park Racing & Casino.

The Bricktown Warehouse District has been converted into a restaurant and nightclub hotspot, perfect for exploring Oklahoma City's thriving nightlife. The Arts District offers a number of cultural attractions, including the Museum of Art, Civic Center Music Hall, and Myriad Botanical Gardens.
